Palatial Residence in the sky

Light, Air and Architecture converge in this extraordinary Penthouse.

Once in a lifetime does an iconic, sophisticated residence come on the market such as this incomparable, sumptuous and serene triplex penthouse surrounded by outdoor terraces overlooking the Hudson River.

Originally owned by William Randolph Hearst, this architecturally significant triplex home is comprised of roughly 7000 SF of interior space and approximately 10,000 SF of outdoor terraces. This is one of New York City’s grandest residences and is known for being one of the largest and exquisite renovations in Manhattan within the last generation.

A private landing leads to a formal entrance hall with an exquisite staircase that sweeps your eye upwards. Paneled in lacewood with floors embellished with inlaid marquetry designs, the two-story space is crowned by a Tiffany chandelier. Upon entering the PH, one is immediately drawn to the serenity of the Hudson River and the lavish outdoor terraces.

As you proceed into the living room, the sheer volume of light, sky and water is breathtaking. The mansard living room has the majestic proportions of a grand living space, with 17-foot high ceilings, spectacular curved windows and a south facing terrace with awe-inspiring views of the River. At the most southern end of the room is an exquisitely carved Art Nouveau mantelpiece.
The chef's eat-in kitchen leads to an enormous terrace.
The opulent Master Bedroom suite has its own terrace with astonishing views of the George Washington Bridge to the North, as well as a full bath, dressing room and walk-in closets. The library is divinely wood paneled.
The second and third floor can be accessed by the internal staircase or a private elevator.
The glass-enclosed Solarium on the highest floor of the residence floats over the Hudson River, with its own 2000 SF expansive outdoor deck to enjoy yet more magnificent views.

Living in the Upper West Side
The tree-lined side streets of the Upper West Side have a laid back residential feel that can make you feel you've left the city. Some of the blocks in this neighborhood are considered some of the most beautiful in New York and with good reason.

137 Riverside Drive
Clarendon
137 Riverside Drive, also known as the Clarendon, was designed by the architectural firm of Charles E. Birge for Ranald Macdonald, and completed in 1907. Located on one of the prettiest and most prominent Riverside blocks, the building is well-noted as being the former home of William Randolph Hearst who once occupied the magnificent three story palatial penthouse apartment. Hearst also eventually took over the 8th and 9th floors and bought the building outright during the process until he defaulted during the Great Depression. The Clarendon, a twelve-story building is an elegant turn-of-the-century full-service cooperative with an elegant copper and glass marquee over the entry. The building is in superb physical and financial condition. Amenities include full-time doormen, a live-in resident manager, fitness room, playroom, individual storage, laundry and a bicycle room. Washer and dryers and central air conditioning are allowed.
