5998 Palisade Avenue is a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath house nestled beautifully into the distinctive hills of North Riverdale, cloistered by 40ft rock formations. This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Mid-Century Modern home was designed by a renowned New York architect who is widely celebrated for a wellness-driven approach to architecture. This home, designed for his very own family, marks the apex of his career - a seamless integration of form into its environment, resulting in a sense of total tranquility. The bright rooms exude calm and all of the panorama windows face a lush and private garden. NYC, but never a neighbor in sight. In 2021, a comprehensive restoration led to the installation of a completely new roof and the exterior walls have been restored and repainted to a rich lacquer. Authentic MCM-inspired designs including Louis Poulsen and Blu Dot lighting fixtures have been installed throughout the home. The vast professional grade kitchen opens to a formal dining area with 2 skylights and features Shaker cabinets, natural stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a large center island. There is also a formal dining room and a half bath and laundry on this level. A remarkable hand-carved wood railing leads to the second level which features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The stone-walled daylit basement would be perfect for an art studio or gym. New water heater, upgrades to the existing gas heating system. New through-wall Friedrich AC systems, Nest Security cameras, and Smoke alarms. Fibre/Fios internet set-up, gas fireplace. Two parking spots in the driveway and one in the detached garage. 2,762 of living space on a 10,800sf lot. Incredible location: Express buses to Manhattan and Metro North are both nearby as well as local buses that connect to the 1, 4, and A Trains. Wave Hill, Mount St Vincent College, SAR, Riverdale Country, Hebrew Home, The Henry Hudson Pkwy, and NYS Thruway are close by. A vibrant center is conveniently located nearby with all the amenities you could need.
