Description

Meticulously restored three-bedroom apartment at The Dakota beaming with historic character and detail, five wood-burning fireplaces, soaring 14’ ceilings, and countless modern-day appointments catering to today’s lifestyles. The kitchen and bathrooms have been masterfully updated with respect to The Dakota’s history, giving the next owner the opportunity to move-in right away or personalize the space in their own style with simple decor touches. When not relaxing in the library with its custom built-in bar or admiring the apartment’s original architectural detail, the treetop views and elegant townhomes of West 72nd Street capture the indelible spirit of Manhattan. Completed in 1884 and designed by Henry J.

Hardenbergh (the architect behind the Plaza Hotel), The Dakota is the original “Grand Dame” of Central Park West. Its full array of luxury services include 24-hour door staff, common recreation spaces, and a top-of-the-line gym as well as the highest levels of privacy, security, and service. As the first luxury apartment building in New York, The Dakota ushered in a new way to live for the city’s most discerning residents.

It is in this tradition that Apartment 47 tells its story: grand entertaining spaces unfolding to spacious bedrooms in celebration of having the luxury of public and private life. An elegant foyer exudes Gilded Age grandeur with 14’ ceilings and leads to two splendid entertaining spaces: a large formal living room and library, each appointed with an original mahogany-paneled wood-burning fireplace, inlaid wood floors, original hardware, and solid mahogany pocket doors. Radiating from these spaces are the east-facing family room and the sunny, spacious eat-in kitchen with its traditional glass-paned cabinets, Carrara marble countertops, Italian tile floors, Viking stove, outside vented hood, three Subzero wine fridges, Subzero fridge/freezer, and Asko washer/dryer.

Adjacent to the kitchen lies the “piece de resistance” – the formal dining room, which can comfortably seat 20 or more people. Presently used as two bedrooms with an exercise room, the apartment could be easily reconverted to a three-bedroom home, ideal for a family. The primary bedroom is a vision with two walk-in closets and an ever-gracious, emerald-marbled bath with soaking tub, stall shower, and separate makeup vanity.

The second bedroom, equally spacious, impresses with a walk-in closet, wood-paneled dressing area, and renovated ensuite bathroom. Extraordinary detail adorns every space – from restored woodwork and period pieces to hand stenciling on walls and ceilings. Meanwhile, a seamless fusion of modern-day technology throughout, including a custom-controlled Mitsubishi central A/C, new energy-efficient double pane windows, and a Nest home automation system, is meant to enhance and simplify the next owner’s daily life from day one. Apartment 47 presents an artful blend of past and present in the Upper West Side’s most iconic luxury building.
