This new Vandenberg exclusive at 3 Riverside Drive was featured in The Wall Street Journal on September 24th, 2015. The expansive view of the Hudson River from this mansion-scale townhouse for sale is completely unique. It is as close as a Manhattanite can come to living in a European castle. The gorgeously carved French Renaissance Revival limestone façade, with its ornate ornamentation including gargoyles, scallop shells and cherubs, is just the beginning. The stunning details and scope of this riverfront home have to be seen to be believed. Once inside, you will be awestruck by the thirty-seven feet of panoramic river views, exquisite moldings, coffered ceilings, marble fireplaces, multiple outdoor spaces, radiant light from the front and rear bay windows, and more. With soaring ceilings and width you won’t find in any other Manhattan townhouse, this is the perfect home for an art aficionado with contemporary pieces that simply won’t fit in any other home. Make this modern-day castle your artistic sanctuary. This elevator townhouse also offers a perfect view of the Eleanor Roosevelt Monument, which celebrates her work as a humanitarian and activist. It was dedicated in 1996 in the presence of then-First Lady of the United States Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Beaux-Arts architect C. P. H. Gilbert, renowned for his opulent New York mansions and townhouses, created this five-story residence in 1896. From West 85th Street, near the corner of West End Avenue and the neighboring landmarked Clarence True house, you ascend wide front steps and enter under the graceful curve of a limestone façade. All the important original details remain, in mint condition, from the exterior’s artfully-carved façade to the carefully-restored interior wood staircase, windows and fireplaces. The current owners harmoniously added California Arts & Crafts style interior design. Practical “tilt and turn” windows are a modern amenity.
