Property Description

Rare opportunity to purchase a classic-six residence in mint condition, with approx. 2,000 sq. ft. of grandly proportioned rooms, including 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a formal dining room, windowed eat-in kitchen, and staff room or home office, in sought-after full-service building, located within the highly desirable PS87 school district.

The classic layout features a gracious entry gallery that connects to all main areas of the home. A sprawling double living room with high beamed ceilings, oversized windows offers open/sunny south exposures and eye-catching views of the beautiful and distinctive architecture of the 19th century townhouses across the street, as well as plentiful sky and Riverside Park.

There is an enormous formal dining room that can comfortably seat 20 guests, featuring elegant Oak wainscoting, and oversized windows with East exposure. A butler's pantry with a Bosch washer & dryer leads to the windowed eat-in kitchen, featuring a built-in breakfast area, granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplash, custom wood cabinetry with abundant storage, two sinks with Rohl fixtures, as well as top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a Viking stove. There is also a large walk-in pantry. The spacious staff room makes a perfect guest bedroom, home office or gym, with its own full bathroom.

A hallway leads to the bedroom wing, with two large bedrooms, including a massive corner master bedroom suite offering South and East exposures, spacious walk-in closet, and renovated windowed master bathroom with basketweave marble tile floors, marble tiled walls, glass-enclosed shower stall, and separate soaking tub all with Lefroy Brooks fixtures. The second bedroom suite also features spacious closets, and windowed bathroom with tub, and access from both bedroom and hallway.

Other features include hardwood floors, through-the-wall air conditioning, and beamed ceilings throughout.

50 Riverside Drive is a full-service building offering 24-hour doorman and concierge, on-site building manager, children's play room, private storage, and bicycle room. Situated across beautiful Riverside Park in a historic landmarked area, away from the bustle of the city, but convenient to all neighborhood amenities, restaurants, transportation, shopping and entertainment. Fairway, Zabar's, Citarella, and the Beacon theatre are steps away.

Three Beds in Upper West Side


Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
