Space, views, park-like setting — a Briar Oaks co-op has it all

Briar Oaks, at 4555 Henry Hudson Parkway, is hard to miss. The two-building co-op complex occupies the top of a high hill with a commanding view of its surroundings and comes as close as any development in Riverdale to the modern architectural ideal of towers in a park.

Visitors to this week’s featured home, unit 805, are treated to a sweeping panorama from its terrace or its broad picture windows with all of the Bronx spread out before them, but the 1,200 square foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment has much more to offer.

It is not only spacious, but flexible, with a dining L that could become an additional bedroom.

The living room is large enough to accomodate a comfortable, conversational grouping of easy chairs and sofas as well as a separate area for media viewing.

The galley kitchen is the picture of efficiency, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and traditional-style white cabinetry.

The bathroom has been fully updated with a trendy new vanity, a sliding glass tub enclosure and elegant new tilework.

In addition to its parklike setting, Briar Oaks features 24-hour doorman service and a well-equipped gym.

According to John Edwards of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the asking price is $319,000 with monthly maintenance of $1,043.
