If Lauren Bacall and Roberta Flack‘s Dakota homes are out of your budget, fix your eyes on this splendid apartment that has just been placed on the market for $3.6 million. This understated beauty is one that seems to have withstood the test of time, maintaining all the stunning details unique to its storied address. And with two bedrooms, incredible 14-foot ceilings (yes, they’re taller than both Flack’s and Bacall’s) and south-facing windows flooding the home with light, even though it might not carry the same star cachet as the others, we’re sure you wouldn’t turn down a chance to sashay across its immaculate wood floors.
The apartment sits on the second floor of the famed building and overlooks 72nd Street. In addition to very high ceilings, each room features huge arched windows with marble sills and built-in shutters, and is steeped in elaborate details such as blended patterned hardwood floors, extra tall solid wood doors with original fixtures and etched glass, distinct moldings and the original sunburst copper grills. A large formal room provides enough space for both a living and dining area with room to spare, and here you’ll also find one of the home’s two hand-carved wood-burning fireplace mantels.
The bedrooms are wide and gracious, both with en suite bathrooms, the same tall ceilings seen throughout the home, and enough room to fit large tables or to create cozy sitting areas to complement the space. The apartment also comes with a very large basement studio with high ceilings and a full marble bathroom that could be used as an art or work studio, home office or storage according to the listing.
