An apartment that can be best described as a work of art has come to market in the famed Dakota.
This 2/3 bedroom apartment is adorned with 14-foot ceilings, 9.5 feet arched windows and pre-war details only belonging to this famed building. The apartment has been renovated to perfection and tastefully appointed. The home has been meticulously restored to showcase its historic character and detail while, at the same time, a mint renovation provides all modern updates and conveniences. The refinishing of the woodwork has been widely recognized as among the very best in the building; original wood flooring; 4 working fireplaces; 10-foot doors, three bathrooms all in stone by the celebrated late architect, Margaret Helfand; kitchen cabinets updated but modeled on Dakota originals and top of the line appliances all complete this masterpiece. Upon entering the apartment a grand foyer leads you to a perfectly proportioned living room and library with 9.5-foot windows with views directly across the street at buildings by the same famed architect. The primary suite has a sitting area, walk-in closet and large bathroom with a separate shower and tub. The dining room and kitchen which overlook the famed Dakota courtyard provide the ultimate in tranquil and extraordinary views.
The Dakota is part of New York City’s history – built in 1884 and designed by noted architect Henry J. Hardenbergh (who also designed the Plaza Hotel), its name evokes images of a time when the Upper West Side featured open fields, farms and streams. Located on Central Park West, across from nearby Strawberry Fields, its full array of luxury services include 24-hour door staff, common recreation spaces and a top-of-the-line gym. It offers the highest level of privacy, security, service, and luxury in one of New York’s most distinguished landmark buildings.
