Raw at the River

62,000 square foot apartment at New York’s The River House comes to the market for £80.5 million

 

Apartments don’t normally come with indoor tennis courts but if the proposed conversion of the former River Club within New York’s River House co-operative goes ahead, what will surely be one of the world’s most ludicrous properties will indeed be created.

For £80.5 million ($130 million), a buyer would get a “raw space” where an apartment offering 62,000 square foot of accommodation over five levels could be developed. The design includes such essentials as not only the 119-foot by 50-foot tennis court but also a swimming pool measuring 82 foot in length, a gym, a massage room, make-up room, a bowling alley, cold plunge pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and wet bar.

 

In addition, there would be a mammoth 27-foot by 61-foot master bedroom suite that will feature his and her bathrooms and his and hers dressing rooms. The proposed suite also includes “his and hers out of season” closets and a shoe room whilst three further bedroom suites are provided for guests on the same level.

 

Staff, equally, are given paramount consideration with an entire 5,945 square foot level devoted to providing bedrooms, staff lounges and offices for them whilst whomever buys would also be able to use a vast screening room, games room, billiards room and numerous reception spaces.

 

Designed by Tony Ingrao, agents Brown Harris Stevens describe “The Residence at River House” at 435 East 52nd Street as “the most important private residential property in New York City history to come to market” and also laud it as being “what will truly be one of the grandest urban residences in the world”.

 

As The New York Observer points out, however, the River House has somewhat “lost its place at the pinnacle of New York society” in recent years. The building has variously been the home of Henry Kissinger and Barbara Taylor Bradford but is better known for having a board that rejected Gloria Vanderbilt, Richard Nixon, Diane Keaton and Joan Crawford. It’s a fussy place and its location isn’t exactly considered top drawer. Given that the building stands next to a busy six-lane highway, we must ask: “Is this really just a raw deal?”
