Located in The Dakota, this 9-room meticulously renovated apartment radiates the quintessential grandeur that has long defined this iconic cooperative building. The apartment's dynamic floor plan employs the French style of the period so all of the major rooms are connected to each other and are accessible from a hall or corridor, as well. This arrangement confers a wonderful sense of flow and allows for natural migration from one room to another. Each of the public rooms is generously oversized, boasts 13-foot ceilings, and is bathed in sunshine. Noteworthy features include: a formal dining room that overlooks the building's enchanting central courtyard, a proper library that is both inviting and private, seven wood-burning fireplaces (currently sealed but which can be unsealed), and three beautifully appointed full-bathrooms.The elegant and comprehensive renovation includes central air conditioning, soaring doorways, restored hardwood floors/pocket doors/shutters, and crisp lacquer walls. The capacious Chef's eat-in-kitchen offers abundant custom-cabinetry, marble countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances. The Dakota is one of New York City's most coveted residential buildings. Its mesmerizing details, embellished with gilded finials and Gothic gables, exude a timeless splendor. The arched main entrance transports owners and their guests alike to the bygone era when horse-drawn carriages ferried Dakota residents and their visitors to and from their daily activities. More recently, a beautiful water fountain has been placed in the courtyard, adding yet another dimension to the Dakota's glorious essence. And though it goes without saying, Dakota residents enjoy a regal level of privacy and service, which is seen to by Manhattan's finest building staff and NYC's preeminent management company.
