New York, NY, USA
140 RIVERSIDE DRIVE
Apartment 4M at The Normandy by Emery Roth is a bright and shining example of tasteful renovation and prewar architecture at its best. High beamed-ceilings, crown molding, and elegant herringbone floors were left intact after an entire gut renovation in 2016 and serve to maintain the timeless character of this one-bedroom apartment. With southern exposures, the apartment's large windows face away from the street providing not only ample natural light, but also privacy and quietude throughout the space. The generous living/dining area is very well-suited for entertaining company and large enough to not only accommodate lounge furniture, but also a full-sized dining table. The living/dining space also features a large custom California closet for storage needs. Renovated in 2016, the windowed kitchen has been enlarged and perfected with all new custom cabinetry, stainless steel Bertazzoni and Blomberg appliances, Bosch stackable washer/dryer, and a bar that opens to the living room providing a convenient place to enjoy morning coffee or a casual dinner alone or with guests. Off the kitchen is a stylishly renovated powder room perfect for guests. Beyond the kitchen is the master suite complete with an immaculate full bathroom with radiant heated floors, another custom California closet, and black-out shades for the windows. Built in 1939, The Normandy at 140 Riverside Drive faces the Hudson River and is often touted as one of the city's best Art Deco buildings. The last of the great twin-towered apartment houses built by Roth, this luxury co-operative is full service and includes a 24-hour doorman and concierge, handymen, porters, and a live-in resident manager. The building also features a fitness room, landscaped roof deck with city and river views, playroom, storage, meeting/community room, as well as a laundry room and bicycle room. Pied-a-terre purchasers are allowed and pets are welcome.
