This stunning custom-designed Riverside Drive home offers a spectacular vantage point with all rooms facing west, showcasing beautiful lush Riverside Park views, a gorgeous seasonal perspective and extraordinary sunsets at day’s end. Rarely does such a special property come to market, this sun-filled grand-scale one bedroom is a truly one-of-a-kind space. Architecturally distinctive, the apartment was designed by the owner/architect to maximize space, light, and scale and enhance the old-world detail so appealing of prewar design. Thoughtfully conceived, every square inch was utilized in the design for function with cleverly concealed storage throughout and a well-planned, flowing layout to accommodate entertaining on a large-scale. The impressive scale is enhanced by 10 1/2’ ceilings, oversized, full-height windows and fantastic natural light in every room. Beautifully preserved prewar details include hardwood floors with decorative Maple border inlays in both the living room and bedroom, wood frame windows, wainscoting, crown moldings, solid Mahogany doors and a stunning coffered ceiling in the bedroom and a striking Beaux-Arts original decorative fireplace. There are many fascinating architectural elements that enhance the living spaces including pocket doors with frosted glass, French doors with Flemish glass, recessed television niches, walnut veneered foyer built-ins, a custom floating walnut living room cabinet with waterfall edge (AV storage and dry bar) and matching floating shelves. Modern upgrades were also incorporated into the design including top-of-the-line appliances, a spa-like marble bathroom with stunning finishes, laundry closet with full-size washer/dryer, surround sound audio system with built-in speakers, three custom-fitted walk-in bedroom closets, new double-paned windows and outdoor window awnings that reduce energy costs in the summer. The custom eat-in kitchen blends materials for optimal function and boasts mixed use cabinet storage to the full 10’6” height ceiling with closed, open and glass front cabinetry. An extra-deep stainless counter is superb for easy clean-up, a beautiful Calacatta Gold marble surface and backsplash (wonderful for baker’s dough), and a blend of magnetic and chalkboard refrigerator front. Top-of-line appliances include Fisher & Paykel oven, Thermador stovetop, 36” Sub-Zero refrigerator, double-drawer Kitchen Aid dishwasher and 23-bottle wine refrigerator. Other unique elements include under sink recycling, microwave garage and glass portal into the bathroom emphasizing light and views between the two spaces. The stunning spa like bathroom was redesigned utilizing the finest materials for comfort and style. Bathed in marble, black penny round tile floor and Calacatta Gold tub deck and accent wall, additional design elements include European wall mounted fixtures, 5’ deep-soaking tub with double shower heads, deep medicine cabinets, built-in wall storage, TV niche, hamper storage, and laundry closet with Bosch washer and dryer. The Strathmore is one of Riverside’s great apartment buildings and is rich in history. Built in 1909 by preeminent architects Schwartz and Gross and developed by Bing & Bing, one of the most important real estate developers in the early 20th century. Bing & Bing buildings are regarded as among the city’s top luxury prewar buildings. Many of the notable residents who have lived at the Strathmore over the past century—some have included multiple generations—have been known to describe the building as a warm and welcoming residential community. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is filmed at 404 Riverside Drive.
