THE DAKOTA – MINT 10 ROOM RESIDENCE
Located in the legendary Dakota on Central Park West and 72nd Street, this magnificent home is one of the largest in the building, and is rich in history and architectural grandeur. The 10-room residence has been beautifully renovated and restored, while the original 19th-Century details and appointments remain perfectly preserved. A stunning array of grand-scale public rooms begins in the generous 16′ entrance gallery with its original fireplace mantel. There is a vast 29′ corner living room with exquisite original moldings and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows framing open views to the North and West. Accessed through a set of pocket-doors, the adjacent library offers an elegant fireplace and wonderful double exposure to the South and West. On the other side of the gallery, the 24′ formal dining features original wainscoting, and a fireplace. Overlooking the building’s charming central courtyard, the voluminous Chef’s kitchen and family room have ample space for dining and a large butler’s pantry with temperature-controlled wine storage. Outfitted with beautiful custom cabinetry and appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf, the sundrenched kitchen features multiple Franke sinks with Water Works fixtures, marble countertops, a large island and a separate laundry room with washer/dryer. There are four large bedrooms, including the oversized master suite with a luxuriously-appointed marble bath with double-sinks and a separate steam shower and tub. Designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, The Dakota was built in 1884 and its ornate finials and Gothic gables make it one of the most striking structures on the Upper West Side. The Dakota offers residents the highest level of privacy, service and luxury in one of Manhattan’s most distinguished landmarked buildings.
