Beautifully and recently renovated by noted designer, this elegant, grand and bright 7.5-room home in mint condition features impressively-scaled rooms with very high (10’) ceilings, gorgeous old-world architectural details, modern comforts and extraordinary storage throughout. The apartment is located in a wonderful Upper West Side community and building with huge outdoor garden and astonishingly low maintenance on one of the most stunning and safe blocks on the Upper West Side. The expansive and beautifully proportioned layout presents an open living room and formal dining room, a study/sitting area, windowed kitchen, 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 full baths, a large windowed home office (which may serve as 4th bedroom) and elegant, designer marble entry foyer. There is a wonderful flow in the layout for entertaining and the floor plan provides for living with a separate residence wing. Generous scale is enhanced by 10’ high ceilings, oversized picture windows, lovely brownstone tree-lined block views, very spacious rooms, fantastic light and an extraordinary amount of custom fitted storage that maximizes the living space. Fantastic features include laundry, custom built-ins throughout, high-end audio/video system, “invisible” high speed internet/cable/surround sound/phone wires throughout (embedded within recently skim-coated walls), custom window seats, cleverly concealed through-the-wall air conditioning and new stainless appliances. A blend of original and new architectural detail so desirable of prewar construction can be found throughout including original refinished hardwood floors with border inlay (herringbone in formal rooms), distinctive century-old columns blending seamlessly with new crown and picture frame moldings and a decorative fireplace with marble hearth. 299 Riverside Drive is an excellent building with easy access to Riverside Park and its wonderful paths, ball fields, clay court tennis and playgrounds. Building amenities include a large, beautifully maintained outdoor garden lush with plantings and edible herbs, as well as a BBQ grill and seating areas. 102nd Street between Riverside Drive and West End Avenue is a lovely tree-lined brownstone block that provides a fabulous residential setting that benefits from the resident-led 102nd / 103rd Street block association, which employs a full-time security guard maintaining the block as one of the safest on the Upper West Side.
