Find your 'villa in a sky' 400 feet above the Hudson

RoseAnn Hermann & Maria-Stella Fountoulakis of Brown Harris Stevens Residential Sales


Johnny and Berto remember the very first time they ever stepped into their Skyview-on-the-Hudson home.

“We walked directly onto the terrace where we were overwhelmed by the view and its breathtaking beauty,” they said. “It was that moment we decided to buy it.”

That was 18 years ago. And now, Johnny and Berto are doing one of the most difficult things in their lives: They’re selling their 5900 Arlington Ave., home, hoping a new family will get to experience all the great things they did while living there.

And there’s a lot to enjoy. Johnny and Berto are offering a custom-built-everything two-bedroom, two-bathroom “villa in the sky,” joined by a double terrace — all 400 feet above the Hudson River.

Enjoy front-row seats to the sparkling river and Manhattan skyline from a combined-unit apartment from a community offering a summer pool, gym, tennis, basketball courts, private dog park, a private playground, and a gazebo area.

There is a 24-hour attended lobby, package room, elevator and laundry on-site.

The home also offers two dishwashers, tuck-away invisible storage, and built-ins throughout.

Sublets and dogs are permitted, and temporary parking is available although assigned parking is waitlisted.

Convince the co-op board and Johnny and Berto that you are the perfect successor for this fantastic home. It’s ready for you at $754,000, and monthly maintenance at just over $1,900.

“It has been a place of joy and happiness for us,” Johnny and Berto say.

“Our neighbors, the pool, gym, tennis courts, dog run — should we go on? — have added to the enjoyment and quality of living.

“We will certainly miss it.”
