There aren’t many apartment buildings in Riverdale that offer true pre-war charm, and the gracious living that comes with it.
The units at Fieldston Gardens, 525 West 238th Street, are special. They are large, they are light-filled and they have been meticulously kept, as has the whole building.
Apartment 3B is no exception to the rule, but rather exemplifies it.
It has a huge foyer, three enormous bedrooms, an oversized living room with fireplace, a separate and spacious dining room and even a butler’s pantry. In the butler’s pantry, you’ll even find a dumb waiter.
There is a working wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The floors are hardwood throughout the unit and original crown moldings that frame 9-foot ceilings. In all, the apartment offers 1650 square feet of living space.
In the windowed eat-in-kitchen, a visitor will find granite countertops, cherry wood custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The two bathrooms have recently been redone.
While they are not currently installed, a washer and dryer can be added inside apartment.
The building features a private park, accessible only with a key, and is steps away from everything from schools to public transportation.
The asking price is $589,000, and the monthly maintenance is maintenance charge is $1,008, according to exclusive broker Amela Kadric of Halstead Property.
