Property Description

5998 Palisade Avenue is a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath house nestled beautifully into the distinctive hills of North Riverdale, cloistered by 40ft rock formations. This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Mid-Century Modern home was designed by a renowned New York architect who is widely celebrated for a wellness-driven approach to architecture. This home, designed for his very own family, marks the apex of his career - a seamless integration of form into its environment, resulting in a sense of total tranquility. The bright rooms exude calm and all of the panorama windows face a lush and private garden. NYC, but never a neighbor in sight. In 2021, a comprehensive restoration led to the installation of a completely new roof and the exterior walls have been restored and repainted to a rich lacquer. Authentic MCM-inspired designs including Louis Poulsen and Blu Dot lighting fixtures have been installed throughout the home. The vast professional grade kitchen opens to a formal dining area with 2 skylights and features Shaker cabinets, natural stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a large center island. There is also a formal dining room and a half bath and laundry on this level. A remarkable hand-carved wood railing leads to the second level which features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The stone-walled daylit basement would be perfect for an art studio or gym. New water heater, upgrades to the existing gas heating system. New through-wall Friedrich AC systems, Nest Security cameras, and Smoke alarms. Fibre/Fios internet set-up, gas fireplace. Two parking spots in the driveway and one in the detached garage. 2,762 of living space on a 10,800sf lot. Incredible location: Express buses to Manhattan and Metro North are both nearby as well as local buses that connect to the 1, 4, and A Trains. Wave Hill, Mount St Vincent College, SAR, Riverdale Country, Hebrew Home, The Henry Hudson Pkwy, and NYS Thruway are close by. A vibrant center is conveniently located nearby with all the amenities you could need.

Riverdale | Bronx

Quick Profile

Searching for a little bit of country that can be your home base, while still being able to take advantage of everything that NYC offers? Do you want a slower pace of living, focused on family and the great outdoors? Riverdale may be your perfect choice. Only about ten miles north of Midtown, Riverdale’s bucolic paradise feels like you have left the city entirely. You would never guess that you are still within the confines of the Bronx. 

Riverdale is primarily residential with a substantial number of single-family homes and corridors of high-rise apartments. There are many large parks, and they play a major role in the lives of the residents, as they are a primary source of entertainment. Clean, safe streets make Riverdale a great place to walk or cycle. There are trees everywhere, and the air is fresh and invigorating. It is a great place to raise a family, but more and more singles and young professionals are moving into Riverdale, in search of larger, less expensive apartments, and to enjoy the parks and the remarkable views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.  

While the grid layout of the rest of the city makes it easy to find your way from here to there, Riverdale chose to forego that structure, choosing instead to let the verdant streets twist and wind their way around natural obstacles in designs by Frederick Law Olmsted, of Central Park fame. Some streets are divided, with traffic in one direction being at an entirely different level than traffic headed the opposite way on the same street. This quirkiness adds a certain charm to this neighborhood.
