Back in 2009, Dick Cavett paid $4.2 million for an amazingly preserved unit at the historic Central Park West co-op the Kenilworth. But all of this old-world charm wasn’t enough to keep the talk-show host and comedian, as the three-bedroom home, which the listing describes as “fit for Royals,” has just hit the market for $5,995,000. A lucky buyer will get to enjoy a slew of pre-war details, including leaded glass windows and doors, the original oak-paneled dining room, floor-to-ceiling custom built-ins, decorative fireplaces, and carved woodwork and moldings.

Prior to moving into the apartment, Cavett was renting Woody Allen’s brownstone duplex on East 79th Street, but he then decided to buy on the Upper West, where he had lived after college. At the time, he described his new home as “superb.”

The dining room may be the crowning jewel of Dick’s home. The woodwork has never been painted, and it also boasts beamed ceilings, a marble fireplace, crystal chandellier, and window shutters.

All three bedrooms are in a separate wing of the apartment. The master suite is a bit more contemporary than the rest of the home, with upholstered walls and a gold-plated ceiling. In the master bath, you’ll find double marble sinks, radiant heated floors, and lots of built-in storage.

Perhaps Cavett is looking to downsize overall; in June, he also listed his Montauk estate for a whopping $62 million.
