This pristine 7 room apartment in the legendary and iconic Dakota offers grand-scale rooms and impressive proportions. The residence is in perfect move-in condition and the original 19th century architectural details have been carefully preserved and meticulously restored. The home features 5 fireplaces, exquisite Mahogany woodworking, 13.6 foot ceilings, traditional plaster moldings, and immaculate hardwood flooring. One enters the home through a private vestibule which leads to a 15-foot gallery with a fireplace and its original mantel. Accessed through a set of floor-to-ceiling pocket-doors, the living room has a wood-burning fireplace and enjoys charming views of the treetops and townhouses on quiet West 73rd Street. A second set of floor-to-ceiling pocket doors separates the living room from the handsome library, which also has a fireplace. Two of the three bedrooms face onto 73rd St, and the 24 ft. primary bedroom with an oversized en-suite bathroom faces south, overlooking the fountains of the tranquil and charming interior courtyard. The vast eat-in-kitchen and adjacent dining area have custom-cabinetry and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele. There is also professional-grade, temperature-controlled wine storage, and a washer/dryer.
