This beautifully proportioned classic six-room, corner home is ideally positioned at the crossroads of 75th Street and Riverside Drive across the street from the beauty and recreation of Riverside Park, in one of the Drive’s more notable full-service buildings. This elegant prewar home has been beautifully renovated balancing the classic original design with modern comforts. Lovely southern exposures draw in great natural light and views showcase historic architectural design of the early century-designed brownstone block. Glorious old-world detail throughout the home includes beamed ceilings, elegant crown and baseboard moldings, hardwood herringbone floors, French doors, custom window seating in the formal rooms, oversized windows and solid wood doors. The layout is as flexible as it is functional and offers a fabulous flow for entertaining. The floor plan includes a living room, formal dining room (configured as a den-media room), two spacious bedrooms, two full baths, a windowed kitchen with butler’s pantry and laundry, a staff room with full bathroom and a very spacious central entry foyer that can easily serve as a dining room. The dining room can be accessed off both the kitchen and foyer by French doors for ease in entertaining. The formal spaces are both impressive in scale with oversized windows, custom window seating and herringbone hardwood floors.
