Roberta Flack’s co-op apartment with mirrored walls in the iconic Dakota has finally found a buyer, after being on and off the market since 2015. As the New York Post reported, the unidentified buyer plans to combine the four-time Grammy Award winner’s five-room pad with an adjacent apartment, which was allegedly the one-time home of Judy Garland. While the final sale price of the combined package is not known yet, it appears the merge will restore the exact floor plan of one of the Dakota’s 65 original units back when the building was finished in 1884. Flack’s apartment was last listed for $6.99 million and the co-op next-door was most recently listed for $10 million.
The spacious home retains classic Dakota features like 12 foot high ceilings, four wood-burning fireplaces and original mantels. The sprawling, open layout allows for two sitting areas in the living room, which also has a back bay window with views of Central Park. The dining room can seat more than a dozen guests an also features a fireplace. Both rooms are wrapped with a Juliette balcony.
The master suite boasts oversized proportions, with enough room for its own sitting area around the woodburning fireplace. The second bedroom is also a generous size and has its own fireplace.
Other original details include the oak floors, mahogany and ash moldings, doors, plaster moldings and the shutter-framed windows seen throughout.
