MIT Professor Sells Gorgeous Prewar Apartment in the Dorchester

July 25, 2014

A professor of Politics at MIT has just sold his Upper West Side co-op for $5 million, $50,000 over asking, according to city records. The 7th floor apartment at the Neville and Bagge-designed Dorchester has been renovated to include pristine modern finishes, while still embracing the home’s original details from over a century ago. Some of those details include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and elegant mouldings.

There’s definitely no want for natural light in this 4BR/3BA apartment, as a series of oversized windows provide stunning views of the Hudson, Riverside Park, and of course, some breathtaking sunsets. An open layout and built-in speakers allows for great entertaining while French doors at a touch of elegance and old-world charm. An original decorative fireplace with an antique mirrored mantle serves as a focal point for the living room, and soaring 10-foot ceilings show off the open, airy room even more.

The living quarters consist of four spacious bedrooms, one of which is currently being used as a home office, and two that appear to be devoted to Knicks fans. Three renovated bathrooms and custom storage spaces complete the space. Add that to a kitchen with top-of-the-line names like SubZero, Thermador, and Bosch; and a separate media room and we’re a bit confused as to why Lieberman and his wife Amy would want to leave such a gorgeous place… although researching politics in developing countries sounds like a noble enough reason.
