Oversized, Meticulously Gut Renovated 3 Bedroom Sponsor Unit Overlooking Riverside Park. No Board Approval Required, Low Maintenance.
Come home to this oversized 3BR apartment at 640 W. 139th Street, aka 618 Riverside Drive. Located on Riverside Drive facing west, this unit offers scale, functionality and protected views of Riverbank State Park. No detail was spared during this complete and meticulous gut renovation with high end condo finishes. This beautiful and spacious apartment seamlessly merges historic prewar detail with stylish and modern design, giving the home a classic downtown loft feel.
Upon entering the apartment, you are welcomed by a foyer/mudroom coupled with 10 foot ceilings and recessed lighting throughout. Down a long hallway flanked by walls of exposed brick, you have three bedrooms with an office that offers a layout conducive for good separation and privacy within the home. The master bedroom comes equipped with double-wide closets that can easily accommodate a king-sized bed and furniture set. As you traverse the hall, to the left you have a flexible layout which is currently comprised of a full bathroom, home office, and two additional full-size bedrooms. NOTE: There are no load-bearing walls from north to south in the unit, so possible reconfiguration of the space is fully achievable and the office can seamlessly be converted into a second bathroom.
At the end of the hallway, you are greeted by a sprawling 35 x 13’7” loft-like living/dining area that faces west onto Riverside Park. Off the living room you will find an open chef’s kitchen fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances. The living room benefits from southern and western exposure offering a constant stream of natural light making the space bright, airy, open and perfect for entertaining.
640 West 139th offers a tremendous opportunity with great upside and makes sense for users or investors. The building permits and offers the following: No Board approval, an unlimited subletting policy, pied-a-terre, co-purchasing, parental purchasing, gifting, an on-site super and pets allowed.

Some of the neighborhood’s most exciting eateries, such as The Grange, Trufa, Harlem Public, and Home Sweet Harlem, are located near your doorstep. It’s an ideal location for academics: the building is located only a few blocks away from CUNY City College of New York and the recent 17-acre expansion of Columbia University’s Manhattanville campus. Mass transit is readily available: on Broadway the 1 train is two blocks away and just 3 quick stops to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. There are uptown and downtown buses on Broadway, and it’s not far to reach the A, B, C, and D lines. The location of the building allows for easy and quick access throughout Manhattan and the outer boroughs via the Henry Hudson Parkway, George Washington Bridge, and FDR Drive. The neighborhood offers several parks including St. Nicholas Park and the amazing Riverbank State Park, which runs along the Hudson River west of Hamilton Heights and is comprised of a double sized Olympic Pool, tennis and basketball courts, ice skating rink, running track, and playgrounds.
