Magnificent 6-BR / 4.5 BA Neo-Georgian Townhouse Floor Through w/ Deck, Backyard and Fireplace

668 West 232 Street, House, Riverdale
Description

Upon entry, the expansive living room breathes with spectacular height from the 13ft ceiling adorned with crown moulding, complimented by the impeccable hardwood oak floors that exude warm richness throughout. Gas fireplace, unique wall niches and a pass-through window that peers down from the kitchen level are all features that add beauty and distinction to the space. Fantastic light streams through the floor-to-ceiling double-paned Pella windows, creating tranquil, sun basking moments in this great room.

Sliding doors open out to the south-facing patio deck that lead down to the vast backyard where social gatherings can spill out for a multitude of recreational activities. Circle back indoors through the garden level entry into the sizable recreation room with adjacent full bathroom, laundry room, generous storage closets and a two-car garage with private driveway.

Steps above the living room is the spacious loft-like dining room with recessed lighting and a cozy den area offset by oversized windows offering northern views, which coupled with the adjoining gourmet kitchen creates an ideal space for entertaining. Appointed with cherry cabinetry, gleaming glass tiles, granite countertops, all stainless steel appliances (including a Viking stove with grill, top-of-the-line range hood and garbage compactor), duo sinks and pot-filler above the stove, the kitchen lends superior efficiency to any chef and can handle the largest of gatherings.

The 3rd floor features the master bedroom boasting a large walk-in closet, two additional finished closets and recessed bookshelves. Its en-suite bath has a large spa shower with rainfall showerhead, hand held spray and vertical massage jets. Marble-topped dual vanity. Two equally-sized bedrooms share an additional full bathroom. The top floor encompasses three additional bedrooms, which include an exceptionally large south-facing room with a huge walk-in closet, and another bathroom smartly designed with dual granite vanity. All bathrooms have Kohler fixtures and Toto toilets.

This house, completed in 2009, was the model unit that dictated the high quality finishes for its neighbouring townhouses. It is not only well-constructed, every detail is meticulously finished and further enhanced by upgrades that enrich this already superb family residence, including:

•  Premium Samsung refrigerator and dishwasher installed just last year  •  New top-of-the-line Fotile digital vent out range hood (winner of the Red Dot design award); extremely powerful with fume sensory and auto-suction adjustment  •  Kohler frameless shower doors in upper floor bathroom recently installed  •  Light fixtures upgraded to LED, significantly reducing electrical costs  •  Simplisafe customizable alarm system  •  Keyless entry with Bluetooth Scalage Sense Smart deadbolts on front and garage doors w/ customized key codes  •  Individual HVAC per floor w/independent climate control to lower energy costs  •  Backyard covered in Astro Turf keeping the lawn green and neat year round w/o maintenance.

Perched in historic Spuyten Duyvil in South Riverdale, this stunning house is surrounded by water and the abundant green spaces of Seton, Henry Hudson and Ewen parks. Across the street is a beautifully landscaped, upscale health club with a variety of fitness classes & Olympic sized pool (membership required), as well as a new renowned learning center for pre-schoolers. Other schools and the public library are a short distance away. Three commercial shopping strips with cafes, banks, drugstores, groceries and bountiful local restaurants are within minutes’ access. Wave Hill, Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Garden are all within very close proximity.

The townhouse’s prime location allows for an effortless commute to Manhattan via multiple modes of transportation. Close access to Metro North takes you to Grand Central in 27 mins w/ a shuttle bus synchronized to the train’s schedule; two express buses to midtown Manhattan stop at the end of the block; and while the house is within a short distance of the subway, the same stop offers a bus to the 1 train. Driving is beyond convenient since you can avoid the city and escape easily to the Hudson Valley or NJ, and the West Side Highway can take you throughout Manhattan in minutes. This townhouse is an ideal haven for a busy, fulfilling life in a tranquil, luxurious home.
