This compact co-op at 1 West 72nd Street would be charming even if it weren’t perched above the gables of the iconic Dakota residence. The building’s instantly recognizable historic architecture anchors Central Park West, symbolizing the elegance of old New York City. Asking $1.295 million, this rare one-bedroom unit gets all the benefits of the full-service building in addition to the famous address.
The apartment is light-filled and bright, with white walls and hardwood floors. There’s plenty of living space to keep the bedroom side of the apartment private.
An open kitchen has a separate dining nook. Built-in shelves add architectural interest and storage.
A spacious bedroom has two casement windows, another built-in shelving unit and a large custom walk-in closet. A second full-sized closet ups the storage potential.
The building allows in-unit washer and dryers with board approval, but there is a common laundry center for residents as well. The building also offers extra storage, bike storage, a new gym and a gorgeous roof deck in addition to the fabled full-time staff including doormen and concierges
