On one of the Upper West Side’s loveliest historic blocks, the ornate 12-story Beaux-Arts building at 171 West 71st Street known as the Dorilton is an icon of Gilded Age Manhattan living. This distinctive penthouse duplex is as grand as you’d imagine, with four bedrooms, a multi-level planted terrace, and a kitchen on each floor. Asking $7,800,000, we’re guessing this capacious co-op is a two-unit combo, with an elevator serving both floors in addition to a grand stair winding its way between them. Both levels of the duplex have dazzling city views.
On the top floor, A vaulted skylight fills the formal living and dining rooms with sunlight. A gas fireplace provides a cozy anchor for spectacular views in every direction, and a marble-clad open kitchen boasts a breakfast bar.
A multi-level planted and irrigated terrace allows you to take top-floor New York City living out of doors for dining and entertaining surrounded by the city skyline. There are two bedrooms, two baths, and a powder room on this level as well.
A wide stair leads to the lower level, arriving at the library (which can be the third bedroom). This floor has a second well-appointed eat-in-kitchen kitchen as well as two bedrooms and two full baths. The duplex is modernized with plenty of built-in storage, multi-zone central air, a washer/dryer on each level, and a Sonos sound system.
This prestigious, pet-friendly white glove building offers residents a full-time doorman and a live-in super, a landscaped roof garden, an outdoor courtyard, additional storage in the basement, and a bike room.
