Recognized as the most iconic residential addresses in the world, the Dakota has an eternal spot in cultural history. With 180 feet of Central Park frontage, this carefully architected home is the reflection of exclusive class and exquisite taste. At approximately 6,000SF+/-. – the largest of apartments at the storied Dakota – showcasing predominantly Eastern Central Park views that wrap around to the North over 73rd Street, this home is a unique offering to a limited group of discerning buyers.
A proper, handsome vestibule greets you upon entry, granting access to the separate formal dining room and an impressive corner living room, both with wood-burning fireplaces and soaring 11-foot ceilings. An elegant library and an enormous eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and luxurious finishes round out the inviting, lush entertaining spaces. Staff quarters, a service area and a well-apportioned bedroom are tucked at the wing.
The private bedroom quarters provide the ultimate oasis of quiet and comfort and enjoy full Central Park views over the iconic, pitched-roof dormers that characterize the Dakota. The huge principal suite leaves no stone unturned with its sweeping scale, adjacent sitting room and two dressing rooms, as well as thoughtful, elegant finishes. The en-suite spa bathroom features a separate soaking tub, steam shower and beautiful marble finishes. Secondary bedrooms are all oversized and, by way of adjacent studies or alcoves, allow for separate sleeping and entertaining or studying. Capping off this one-of-a-kind, sprawling abode is a separate studio apartment for staff as well as ample basement storage space.
Completed in 1882 and built around an inner courtyard, The Dakota is accessible through the arched, porte-cochère passage of the famed, instantly-recognizable main entrance and features ornate finials and gothic gables. White-gloved, full-time doormen greet owners and guests and ensures the highest level of privacy and security, and concierge service. This is a rare opportunity to be a part of an enduring legacy and to enjoy the discreet prestige of owning at one of the world’s greatest addresses.
