Luxury with a View

435 East 52 St-002

Entry to your classic mint-condition home is via private elevator landing, leading to a welcoming central Gallery. The living room, which is 29 feet in length, directly faces the tranquility and interest of its East River outlook.

From the other end of the gallery, one finds the sizable and airy formal dining room, which provides another special view of the river and the handsome Queensboro Bridge at East 59th Street. Adjoining is the eat-in kitchen with ample pantry and laundry beside, and completing this space is a double staff room with a separate bath.

The private quarters comprise three generous bedrooms, each with bath en suite. The spacious dimensions and fine detailing are characteristic of the elegant pre-war features for which the renowned River House cooperative is so highly revered.

Attentive 24/7 service and immaculate attention to detail have long been hallmarks of calling River House “home.” On weekdays, all building residents may now order dinner from the adjoining River Club, which offers unparalleled cuisine. And all River House residents are guaranteed a social membership in the desirable, exclusive River Club. There is direct entry from River House to the River Club from an indoor passageway, making it easy to get to its fine gym, pool, tennis, and squash facilities.

In addition to the stately, stone, motor-court entrance and lower lawn gardens, one experiences the beauty of the recent redesign of the gardens and fountains by world-renowned garden designer Miranda Brooks. All building residents may enjoy use of the building’s lower garden with its immense private open lawn, benches, and play set for the young—and the young at heart. It would be hard to imagine a lovelier place to call home than the River House.
