Property Description

This pristine 7 room apartment in the legendary and iconic Dakota offers grand-scale rooms and impressive proportions. The residence is in perfect move-in condition and the original 19th century architectural details have been carefully preserved and meticulously restored. The home features 5 fireplaces, exquisite Mahogany woodworking, 13.6 foot ceilings, traditional plaster moldings, and immaculate hardwood flooring. One enters the home through a private vestibule which leads to a 15-foot gallery with a fireplace and its original mantel. Accessed through a set of floor-to-ceiling pocket-doors, the living room has a wood-burning fireplace and enjoys charming views of the treetops and townhouses on quiet West 73rd Street. A second set of floor-to-ceiling pocket doors separates the living room from the handsome library, which also has a fireplace. Two of the three bedrooms face onto 73rd St, and the 24 ft. primary bedroom with an oversized en-suite bathroom faces south, overlooking the fountains of the tranquil and charming interior courtyard. The vast eat-in-kitchen and adjacent dining area have custom-cabinetry and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele. There is also professional-grade, temperature-controlled wine storage, and a washer/dryer.

Designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, The Dakota was built in 1884 adjacent to Central Park. Its stunning faade with ornate finials and Gothic gables make it one of the most striking structures on the Upper West Side. The Dakota offers residents the highest level of privacy, service and security, in one of Manhattan's most distinguished landmarked buildings. A new gym facility is situated on the lower level of the building. There is a 3% flip tax payable by the purchaser.

Quick Profile

Home to some of New York City’s most famous buildings like The Dakota, with its enchanting architecture, and the equally impressive San Remo just a couple streets away, Central Park West is one of the most eye-popping neighborhoods to live in. 

It is historically renowned for its blending of architecture and residential living. So much so, that it earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It is thought to have some of the most diverse and beautiful skylines in all of New York and has drawn celebrity residents for decades

If world-class architecture isn’t enough for you, there are plenty of warm brownstones to be found as well. There is so much to do in Central Park West, the most obvious being in the name of the neighborhood itself. With Central Park running the length of one of its borders, there’s easy access to the park and all its wonders, running trails, row boats, and bridges. If you prefer the indoors, the American Museum of Natural History is at your service. 

There are few places in the world that can match Central Park West’s varied combination of urban and residential charm, elegance, and spirit.
