Take a first peek at the newly released renderings of the Residence at River House, the historic, 82-year old building that will become the largest single family home in New York City.
The five-storey space, currently the site of the River Club, comes with a $130 million price tag and mesaures an incredible 62,000-square-feet. That’s about ten typical Manhattan townhouses or what we can only estimate is about a bazillion bachelor suites.
Want to see what the mega-manse at 435 East 52nd Street will look like? Check out what the new renderings and floorplans, via Brown Harris Stevens, here:
The opulent entry foyer, for all your Scarlett O’Hara-style grand entrances.
The living room, which overlooks a private garden and the East River.
The library, complete with swirly staircase.
The cathedral of cooking, also known as the kitchen.
The master suite, with river views.
The enourmous master ensuite.
Why yes, it does come with a screening room.
The indoor pool with plenty of lounge space.
Practice your back hand at the on-site tennis court.
Two dining rooms — one formal and one casual — are served from the 900 square foot kitchen on the main level. The library and living room look out on the garden below and the entire floor is 8,428 square feet.
The bedroom level features an expansive master bedroom and several 360-square foot guest rooms.
The Entertainment Level, complete with an 18-foot screening room and a game room.
The Garden/Leisure level includes a tennis court, an 82-foot pool plus fitness and spa facilities.
The staff level measures 5,945 square feet.
It’s a looker alright, but the plans to convert Midtown East co-op River House’s private club into the priciest home in the city has raised the ire of River House residents. Instead of just keeping a stiff upper lip, forty of the building’s owners – including bigwigs like former secretary of state Henry Kissinger – have gone to the co-op board, asking them to keep the social club that currently takes up 3 floors of the co-op building.
The building’s co-op board put the raw space on the market after failing to agree with the River Club over a long-term lease renewal or sale.
