Located at 1 West 67th Street, the Upper West Side‘s landmarked Hotel des Artistes co-op, this apartment abounds in original details, most notably a Smithsonian conservator-restored ceiling mural above a carved staircase and a carved stone fireplace in the living room. Central Park is visible from the living room and one of the bedrooms, and the beamed ceilings soar to almost 20 feet, dwarfing even the 14-foot windows. And it can all be yours for $4.5 million.
The first floor contains a foyer larger than plenty NYC apartment bedrooms, a balcony, and a sprawling living room that opens to the upper floor and adjoins with a dining room so large it can also hold a small office. This is all adjacent to a comparatively humble kitchen and connecting pantry.
Upstairs has a bathroom with marble tub, maid’s room, bedroom, and the master bedroom with en-suite bath and walk-in closet, all connected by a wide hallway.
The building itself hosts a variety of luxurious amenities, not to mention the famed former tenant list and history. Built on “Artist’s Row” in 1917, the 18-story Gothic-style artist cooperative was designed by architect George Mort Pollard and claims to be the “largest studio building in the city.” Famous former residents include dancer Isadora Duncan, playwright Noel Coward, writer Fannie Hurst, artist Norman Rockwell, former NYC Mayor John Lindsay, and writer Alexander Woolcott. As for the amenities, residents enjoy access to a swimming pool, squash court, walled roof garden, two workout rooms, and a private dining room. The Hotel des Artistes also has room service.
