Sweeping Hudson River and Iconic Manhattan views.
Located at 2 River Terrace, this high floor, loft-like 3 BR / 3 BA designer condo encompasses sweeping Hudson River and iconic Manhattan views of One World Trade, Statue of Liberty, and The Empire State Building, to name a few. Start your day basking in the morning light of the kitchen overlooking TriBeCa, and unwind in the Great Room, as the sun sets on the skyline of New Jersey.
The home is meticulously designed and constructed by Matthew Kelly of MKDREAMDESIGN, featuring thematic materials: wood, stone, and glass with addition of Corian, silk, and suede in strategic places. No stone is left unturned, predominant details include handcrafted columns by artist Janusz Gilewicz, window ledges replaced with floating limestone ledges, and minimalist floor moldings appointed throughout.
The generously proportioned footprint boasts a welcoming Great Room (28'4" 24') with corner alcove (facing southwest), the perfect place to entertain friends and relax with loved ones. This area is particularly bright and airy due to the soaring 10' ceilings, the highest offered in the complex.
The modern, open plan chef's kitchen is cloaked in day-long natural light, and features teak covered Italian cabinetry by SCHIFFINI, Corian counter tops and energy star appliances: Subzero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Thermador gas cooktop and electric oven.
The Master bedroom overlooking the Hudson River, is tucked away creating a private wing, with an ensuite bathroom that has been reimagined featuring heated stone floors and shower walls, steam machine, an oversized shower railhead with three water experiences, built-in stereo with phone connectivity, relaxation lights, complemented by a beautiful raised wood beam ceiling. Get lost in the walk-in wardrobe equipped with walnut shelves, hanging sections and shoe display, floor to ceiling mirror, and limestone heated flooring.
The second bedroom also overlooks the Hudson River, with a completely redone ensuite bathroom featuring limestone tiles, new custom sink and counter, sink to ceiling mirror cabinets, multicolored light relaxation system, custom bathtub/shower glass doors, and the thoughtful touch of a raised ceiling. The versatile third bedroom faces east overlooking TriBeCa and One World Trade, and offers the possibility of an office or a guest bedroom.
The home features several unique art pieces, a sculpture (glass and stone) custom made by Matthew Kelly that covers one of the dining room's walls, and a canvas artwork (13'6" x 7'0") custom made for the master bedroom. Other design elements of note; all the doors have been replaced with floor-to-ceiling walnut doors with floating frame, all closets are custom equipped with walnut shelves and/or drawers and extended where possible, and custom shades and recessed lighting with Lutron dimmers. Enjoy the convenience of an in-unit washer/dryer, and a myriad of thoughtful custom storage options are punctuated throughout the home.
