Property Description

Elegant three-bedroom/two-bath duplex home in The Grinnell, “The Dakota of the North” at 800 Riverside Drive. With its spacious rooms and high ceilings, Duplex I is a rare find. Bright, serene, and lovingly restored, Duplex I is conveniently entered just off the lobby and feels like a private home. On the first floor, there is a gracious entry foyer with a winding staircase, a generous 19’ x 12’ formal dining room with original mahogany paneling and three windows overlooking Riverside Drive. The large, windowed kitchen has a full-sized pantry, slate floor, Viking and Bosch appliances, original glass front oak cabinetry, and a 12’4“x 6’5” butler’s pantry. There is also a bedroom or office and a full bath. On the second floor, an open 25’ living room and library with French doors and two more bedrooms, all overlook Riverside Drive’s tree-lined expanse. There is also a sitting area and a large full bath. Original prewar details include almost 10’ ceilings, original oak floors with inlay borders, leaded glass transoms, and mahogany doors. There is abundant storage, including walk-in closets throughout. The Grinnell, a stately HDFC co-op in upper Manhattan, might just be the city’s best-kept secret. Built in 1911 and designed in the Beaux-arts style by architects Schwartz & Gross, the triangular-shaped Grinnell boasts a porte-cochere entrance and a unique interior courtyard. Initially designed to “meet the requirement of those accustomed to private houses,” the apartments carefully maximize exposure to natural light, with spacious rooms and high ceilings. The building is named after the Grinnell family who once owned the land it now stands on. One of the crown jewels of the Audubon Park Historic District on Riverside Drive and ideally located near Riverside Park, Riverbank State Park, and Riverside Piers, The Grinnell is pet friendly and offers a live-in super, 18-hour doorman service, a roof terrace with spectacular views, private storage units, gym, bike room, and community room. It is convenient to public transportation with quick access to the Henry Hudson Parkway and George Washington Bridge. Subleasing is permitted for up to 5 years. There is a current monthly capital assessment of $39.96. Welcome home to The Grinnell.
