It’s hard to be disappointed by an apartment at The Dakota, the famed, historic cooperative off Central Park West. This one, now on the market for $5.85 million, lives up to its elegant address with interior features the include carved mahogany doors, wood-burning fireplaces, tin ceilings and a mural painted in the master bathroom. The highly refined spread covers 2,700 square feet–spacious enough for at least one baby grand piano–and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The double mahogany front entrance doors open onto a formal square foyer, large enough for a baby grand piano. As the listing says, this apartment is dripping with “original Dakota details” from the mahogany and ash wood moldings, wood doors, shutter-framed windows and trim, hardwood floors and 12-foot ceilings.

Directly off the foyer is the living room, with a wood burning fireplace and an oversized window facing gorgeous Upper West Side townhouses. Through 10-foot-tall mahogany pocket doors you’ll find the stately library, with floor-to-ceiling bookcases and a wood-burning fireplace with a unique carved mantlepiece.

At the very end of the apartment, wing is the eat-in, windowed kitchen. The space, finished in tin ceilings, has a southern exposure also out to the building’s courtyard.

If you think it all makes for a very impressive apartment, that’s not all! The unit comes with a windowed studio downstairs complete with closet and ensuite bathroom. It’s ideal for a bonus artist studio, office, or guests quarters.
