Description

Rare opportunity to own at the Dakota! Welcome to history, privacy, and class, welcome to The Dakota. Enter through the double mahogany front entrance doors that open onto a beautiful formal square foyer that is large enough for a baby grand piano to disappear.

Directly off the foyer is a wonderful living room with a wood burning fireplace and an oversized window facing gorgeous town homes. Through stunning 10 ft mahogany pocket doors is the magnificent library with floor to ceiling bookcases and a wood burning fireplace that has a unique, carved mantel and surround. Truly one does not find this mastery in detail often.

It feels as though one has stepped back into the grandeur of Old New York. Off the long gallery to the right is the large master bedroom with an oversized window overlooking the Dakota's charming famed courtyard and double fountains. The master bedroom has a generous walk-in closet and a gorgeous en-suite bathroom artfully adorned with pastoral murals. Down the gracious hallway is the second bedroom with a jack and jill bath (currently a half-bath, but, which can easily be restored to a full bath) that also serves an additional third bedroom.

Both of these extra bedrooms boast large windows facing charming town homes on West 73rd Street. Off to the left is another beautifully appointed full bath. At the end of this wing is the generous eat-in windowed kitchen featuring southern exposure into the courtyard as well as grand builtins, for the culinarily inclined this kitchen is a dream.

This grand apartment is dripping with original Dakota details throughout from the mahogany and ash wood moldings, wood doors, shutter framed windows and trim, to the tin ceilings in the kitchen. Soaring 12' ceilings, 3 wood burning fireplaces with original mantels and stunning hardwood floors make this grand home a comfortable one for entertaining and living. Designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, The Dakota offers legendary NYC living thanks to its incredible architecture and illustrious list of current and past residents.

Long considered the iconic residential building of the Upper West Side, The Dakota architecture includes opulent finials, oil-burning lamps, and a manned sentry greets residents and their guests. From the elegant porte cochere entrance you can see glimpses of a fountain, located at the center of The Dakota's beautiful interior courtyard. Once serving as a carriage turnaround, the courtyard now functions as a meeting point for the building's four separate lobbies.

Inside the building itself, the apartments feature uniquely carved fireplace mantels, and towering mahogany doors. French architectural details, popular at the turn of the century, are visible everywhere. Each apartment enjoys an enfilade layout, which allows rooms to be connected to each other through a traditional hall or corridor, offering an increased sense of privacy throughout.

The Dakota is a full service white glove building which has recently added a brand new fitness center to complement the amenities.
