Property Description

As soon as you enter this stunning and serene residence, you feel at home. The complete renovation with an elegant color palette has preserved the pre-war details while adding all new conveniences, from central air to in-unit Bosch washer and dryer; from wall-to-wall closets to recess lighting throughout the over 9 feet ceiling. The south facing oversize living room and the main bedroom look - from a floor up - unto a quiet garden with mature trees giving you the impression of being in a house in the country. To add to this feeling is the chef’s kitchen that – opening into the living space – features a grand marble counter, glass backsplash, top of the line appliances such as SubZero refrigerator and Wolf stove, and tons of storage. The two bedrooms, at the opposite side of the apartment, guarantee maximum privacy. The main suite features a large room with an entire wall of custom closets and a windowed bath with glass-enclosed shower and marble counters. The second bedroom, which can accommodate two twin size beds and extra furniture, has a walk-in closet and an en-suite bathroom with deep soaking tub and double vanity. This loft-like unit can be easily reconfigured as a 3 bedroom since the country-size kitchen (which measures 16’ by 12’.5”) can be scaled back to allow an additional windowed room – be it a bedroom, a study, or a separate dining area. Please, note that this apartment is on the second floor. Residents can enjoy a beautifully landscaped roof deck with stunning views of the Museum of Natural History and the midtown skyline, as well as a quiet furnished backyard and play area. On the coveted West 79th Street Museum block, and conveniently located amid all the Upper West Side has to offer, the Dorset features a part-time (12pm-12am) doorman, live-in super, bike room, individual storage units, and central laundry room. The building is pet friendly and 75% financing permitted. A 24-month capital assessment of $448 per month began in July 2022 and will fund the modernization of both the passenger and service elevators.

Two Beds in Upper West Side


Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
