An apartment that truly redefines term 'gracious'

From the moment you step inside this classic pre-war apartment at 525 W. 238th St., you’ll know the best way to describe your next home is with a big “wow.”

Seven full rooms — seven! — plus two full bathrooms. All spread out over 1,350 square feet.

A large foyer welcomes you the moment you walk through the door, leading to a windowed eat-in kitchen with pantry and stainless steel appliances. There is a working dumbwaiter as well as a large living room with wood-burning fireplace, full dining room, two full-sized bedrooms, plus a bonus room that can serve as a small windowed office.

Don’t want a dining room? No worries. You can easily convert it into a third bedroom. Imagine that — a three-bedroom apartment at Fieldston Gardens for just $469,500.

We’ll need a minute for that.

You’ll also find 9-foot ceilings and lovely hardwood floors. Because the hallway is so wide, you’ll find it perfect for bookcases or shelving.

Views are easterly and to the south, with lots of green, trees and a private park for kids.

It’s a prime location — just 30 minutes from Midtown by express bus, subway, car or the Rail Link to the Metro-North.

Welcome to Fieldston Gardens, a rare and timeless Tudor-style walk-up located in central Riverdale with a live-in super and storage for bicycles, strollers, or just your regular, everyday stuff.
