Fifth Avenue Find

Julia_Pic4.jpgJulia Broder -- Greetings from The Riverside Realty Group in beautiful Westport, CT! Spring is in the air, and flower buds are everywhere. Don't we deserve some great weather? And I'll tell you what else you deserve -- some luxe inspiration from my Luxe Properties website! Visit it often for the latest and greatest in real estate.

This Luxe Properties column is your showcase for new, special luxe properties . . . luxury listings from the best independent boutique firms, of course! Learn all about luxe areas and beautiful residences that are for sale . . . ready for a wonderful buyer like you . . . then give me a call and we'll have fun shopping for your new home together.

My Ears Are Plugged! No more bad news about the real estate market . . . more positive articles are starting to surface in the major papers discussing the low interest rates and the correction of the market in the U.S. Now is the time to buy . . . there are great properties on the market and more to come!

What’s Hot, Julia??? New York is always hot! The market is cooking in the Apple and recording more record sales once again! I found a fantastic unique pre-war full-floor apartment to show you . . . on one of the most coveted streets in Manhattan . . . Fifth Avenue!

Central_Park_Reservoir.jpgPicture This, Luxies: Look out the window of your new home in Manhattan. You're overlooking Central Park and the Jacqueline Onasis Reservoir! From the eleventh floor of this pre-war building on Fifth, you have a glorious view of the elegant buildings on Central Park West, a glorious skyline! This area is also called Carnegie Hill, a cool neighborhood that extends from 79th to 94th Street, from Lexington Avenue to Fifth Avenue.

Very chic, exclusive shops line Madison Avenue. You'll find the favorite restaurant haunts of the rich and famous, all close to the spectacular Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and The Jewish Museum . . . all part of NYC's Museum Mile and nine world-class museums. And the new permanent home of the Museum for African Art is being built up on 110th Street and Fifth Avenue in a glorious new building designed by Robert Stern (see photo below)! The streets of this neighborhood are lined with wonderful examples of pre-war architecture. Some consider this New York’s finest residential neighborhood, with the finest schools, gourmet shops, health clubs, and other amenities only steps from your door.


My Featured Luxe Property: This 10-room coop is wonderfully appointed! It was built in 1917. What's so special about this particular home? Let me count the ways! First, it's located in the heart of everything happening in residential life in New York. Second, this is a full-floor, well-proportioned, residence! Third, it's in a very special boutique building with only 11 residences. That makes this a peaceful, private retreat from the fast-paced bustle of New York City . . . but you're never far from it all when you need to dive back in for fabulous dinners out, trips to the theater or museums, and that power lunch with clients.


This doorman building is pet friendly along with having storage and a live-in super. Luxe living to the max! Other features of this coop include:

Five bedrooms


Four baths


Formal dining room


Three wood-burning fireplaces


Original wood floors, with those great pre-war high ceilings


I was impressed with the flexible layout, ready for your incredible lifestyle. Luxies, you and your interior designer will go wild with the possibilities!
