706 Riverside Drive is an exceptional piece of New York real estate offered in the Washington Heights neighborhood. The building was designed by the famed Emery Roth, the same architect who designed some of the grandest buildings in Manhattan, including the San Remo and the Beresford. Although the art-nouveau building has been gut-renovated, it still contains its original copper eaves. The renovation provided the residences with many modern conveniences and high-end fixtures and finishes.
The home has two entries. The first is through the main entry foyer, which houses two large closets and opens into the expansive living/dining space. The second entrance, originally a service entrance, opens into the eat-in kitchen. The windowed kitchen offers stunning views of the Hudson River and Riverside Park and features stainless steel appliances and sleek granite countertops. The home mixes old and new elements with gorgeous high ceilings with custom crown moldings, refurbished hardwood floors, and new, modern appliances. Baths are also fully renovated.
The building offers a few perks to tempt the prospective tenant. The building offers elevator service to all floors and has a first-floor laundry facility, which residents can access at any time. There is a part-time lobby attendant and a live-in superintendent to care for residents’ needs.
There are few locations in New York as central as 706 Riverside Drive. The residence is situated in the lovely Hamilton Heights section of Harlem on a verdant street with many historic townhouses. It is situated just steps from the Riverbank Park and is just two blocks from the 1 train.
