Description

A unique two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex at the top of the iconic Dakota enjoys all the brightness and quietude that a penthouse home on Central Park West can offer. Penthouse C presents a rare architectural opportunity for modern living amidst historic elegance. The soaring loft-like living and dining lower-level, which offers ample wall space, a wood burning fireplace, and floating glass staircase & transom designed by James Carpenter, have served as the perfect accommodation for the owner’s impressive modern art collection.

The exposed steel beams, the jewel box like sitting room encased within the adjacent turret, and another room devoted to solitude and serenity make for a truly dynamic living experience. The eat-in kitchen enjoys open western and northern exposures. On the second floor sleeping-level there is significant separation between the respective bedrooms, ideal for those attaching a premium to privacy.

In addition, at the second floor landing, there is direct access to the adjoining roof terrace from the apt. The Dakota offers white glove service for owners with the most discerning of standards. Completed in 1884 this enduring masterpiece boasts a gated entryway and a perfectly manicured inner courtyard, making it one of the most treasured landmarks in all of Manhattan.

Pied-a-terres permitted. Other modern amenities of PHC include: multi-zoned central air conditioning, a washer and dryer, and an integrated speaker system. Also available for separate purchase is an extraordinary and versatile storage unit, please enquire for more details.
