270 Riverside Drive offers classic upper west side apartments whose period details— spacious rooms, ceilings over ten feet high, hardwood floors and custom millwork—epitomize prewar craftsmanship. The original floor plans have been thoughtfully reconfigured to accommodate modern lifestyles, with large kitchens, generously sized rooms and baths, and central air-conditioning.
The Living Room
Generously proportioned and flooded with natural light, the living rooms are perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
New energy-efficient windows, high ceilings, herringbone floors and plaster moldings together serve to create a sublime ambience. Expansive passageways ensure a natural flow to the adjacent spaces.
Custom-designed, fifteen-inch plaster crown moldings highlight the craftsmanship brought to the construction of every room.
The Kitchen Quartersawn strip oak floors give way to milk-white wainscoting, while custom cabinetry, with nickel hardware, yields to terraced crown moldings. The polished nanoglass island is a gathering place for family and friends. Many residences feature an oversized window that offers the luxury of natural light.
Custom cabinetry, an integrated suite of Thermador appliances and a Sub-Zero undercounter wine refrigerator accent this comfortable and functional kitchen. Polished white glass countertops contrast smartly with the textured mosaic Calacatta marble backsplash.
The Bedroom The most intimate room in an apartment should also be one of the most beautiful. With ample space in which to relax, the master bedroom features views overlooking the park and river, generously sized closets and an adjoining five-fixture bath.
Sometimes the best room in the house is the one tailored to the owner’s needs. This space can be a guest room, den, music room, home office or even an artist’s studio.
Generously sized baths present quality at every turn.
The coiled filaments of Edison bulbs cast a golden glow onto subtle off-white crackled-finish tiles.
A contrasting-color ceramic bullnose and crown molding brings a finishing touch to each bathroom’s varying tones of white. The custom-designed dual-sink vanity features nickel pulls and fully functional storage drawers. Radiant heat warms the polished mosaic marble floors.
All faucets and hardware are Waterworks, and many of the master baths feature a magnificent freestanding tub.
