The gated side street entrance at the 12-story pre-war Dorilton at 171 West 71st Street on the Upper West Side is considered to be among the grandest in New York. The building, an official city landmark since the 1970s, has undergone a careful restoration that has brought its intricate façade and rich interior spaces back to their original Edwardian splendor; intricate wood molding, wainscoting and marble mantles can still be found in many apartments. This classic style gets an upgrade with modern good looks and comfort in this gracious two (with potential for more) bedroom unit. Starting with the fireplace and stained glass bay windows in the entrance foyer, the apartment radiates elegance and charm. Add a large landscaped terrace, and its $1.925 million ask seems like quite a bargain.

In the home’s gracious floor plan, just to the left of the foyer is a huge living room with ornate woodwork, polished original hardwood floors and a grand floor-to-ceiling fireplace. At nearly 20 feet long, it’s a room made for epic entertaining.

Through a restored pocket door is the den, which is being used as a formal dining room (and could be another bedroom). The room is lined with beautifully restored original wood paneling below a coffered ceiling. A fireplace is flanked by two windows.

The kitchen has all the modern design flourishes and tools. An appliance suite includes a Gaggenau five-burner cooktop and oven, a dishwasher, refrigerator, under-counter freezer drawers and a Miele programmable coffee machine. Countertops are quartz and cabinetry is cherry. Clever kick drawers under the cabinets maximize usable space. There is also a washer/dryer in the unit.

Just outside the kitchen window sits a dreamy, private (we assume) landscaped outdoor space perfect for relaxing, gardening and entertaining. Also off the kitchen is that classic pre-war chamber with its own half bath that makes a perfect study, guest room or bedroom.

Down the hall, the master bedroom offers a big walk-in closet. Down the hall, a sizeable bath (not pictured) boasts a Jacuzzi tub. The apartment comes with all-new Pella top-of-the-line windows, Mitsubishi split system heating and air conditioning and a basement storage space.

Bookended by Central Park and Riverside Park with Lincoln Center a few blocks away, this fully-staffed building offers a common roof deck and basement storage.
