Waterfront homes with yacht moorings are all well and good for the weekend but when there’s serious business to be done there’s nothing like the convenience of a base in the city. Just as with London’s prime real estate, when it comes to buying property in New York City finding the right building, property type and neighbourhood is key. Will it be a five-bedroom brownstone big enough for all the family? Or are you really after a chic Central Park penthouse filled with mod cons and complete with all the service of a five-star hotel? Here are the properties you need to know now…

18-19C-River-House-435-East-52nd-Street

If classic New York City grandeur is your thing then step back to the city’s golden age with this graceful duplex in the storied River House building. Originally built with a pier on which residents could dock their yachts, the building still attracts those with a love of water thanks to its views over the Hudson and is so exclusive that the board has previously rejected potential residents including Gloria Vanderbilt, Richard Nixon and Joan Crawford.

Should you be accepted by River House’s gatekeepers, 18/19C represents a rare opportunity to invest in an expansive duplex with two south facing terraces. Decorated throughout in elegant neutral tones that highlight the original 1930s detailing, the property offers six bedrooms and seven bathrooms along with an enormous great room, dining room with magnificent hand-painted walls, library, chef’s kitchen, breakfast room, laundry room and sun room. Residents are also permitted automatic membership to the River Club, situated in the lower floors of the building, with access to an athletics club with swimming pool tennis and squash courts, garden, gym and restaurants.

18/19C River House is listed for sale with Christie’s International Real Estate for $22.5 million.
