The El Dorado is iconic for so many reasons–its Art Deco architecture, its design by Emery Roth, its two-part tower silhouette–but nothing can beat those Central Park views. And this 15th- and 16th-floor duplex at the classic Upper West Side co-op has 36 windows through which to see these views, along with a 50-foot private balcony. Just listed for $19,999,000, the home has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and tons of classic pre-war details.

The main entrance is on the upper level, via a semi-private elevator landing that opens to a grand, open foyer.

From here, the formal living room and an adjacent sitting room are full of texture, pattern, and eclectic decor. Both rooms open to the outdoor space.

The balcony may be a bit narrow, but it’s long enough for several seating and dining nooks. It overlooks the Reservoir and looks down on the skyscrapers of Billionaires’ Row.

Back inside, on the other side of the foyer, are the formal dining room and the eat-in kitchen, which has an industrial vibe with custom stainless steel cabinetry and appliances. Rounding out this level is a study off the foyer.

Downstairs, the second foyer is adorned with floor-to-ceiling, built-in shelving. This area opens to an equally cozy den.

Off the den, the fourth bedroom has been transformed into a home gym. This would make a nice guest room, as it has an en-suite bathroom and is adjacent to a laundry room with a morning kitchen.

The other two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and spacious closets.

The current owners certainly like their patterns (the wallpaper is removable), but the bones of this master bedroom are exquisite. It has five large windows overlooking the park, as well as two walk-in closets, one the size of a small room, and his and her marble bathrooms.

Located at 300 Central Park West, at 90th Street, the El Dorado is one of the most classic Art Deco landmarks in the city. It was built in 1931 and has just over 200 apartments spread over its 30 floors. Residents benefit from a full-time doorman, a recently renovated fitness center, a mini basketball court, a bike room, and a parking garage.
