As 6sqft previously reported, Tribeca Film Festival co-founders (with Robert DeNiro) Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff have been trying to sell their sprawling pad in the storied Dakota since last March, when they listed the 7,500-square-foot combo of no less than four individual units for the suitably vast sum of $39 million. A year and some months later with no takers, the couple, who announced their divorce in 2014–have edited a cool $19 million out of the picture and are now asking $25 million (h/t Curbed).
Apartments in the iconic Upper West Side co-operative, past and present home to stars and other luminaries from John Lennon and Yoko Ono to Roberta Flack and Maury Povich, rarely become available; residents tend to hold on to their homes. The new listing comes with a little space reshuffling–one of the four units amassed by the pair is missing from the still-mind-boggling floor plan–and the suggestion that the new owner can “create an urban oasis with up to five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, fabulous formal dining and living rooms…”
The enormous apartment’s L-shaped layout looks to be the size of a small city, including (but not limited to) an entrance vestibule, multiple studies, playrooms, many dressing rooms, a library and, sadly, only one gym. The apartment offers an internal staff room, but there’s also a separate staff studio apartment on the building’s second floor.
Other bragging points include 11-foot ceilings and two wood-burning fireplaces; the home’s current owners clearly put a great deal of effort into the interior design of the masterfully-combined collection of properties.
Eighth floor views from three exposures–and 160 feet of park frontage–include dazzling Central Park vistas from many rooms including three bedrooms. The master bedroom is a palatial, luxurious affair with a grand arched entryway, a library nook and built-in bookshelves.
His-and-her bathrooms join his-and-her dressing rooms, bedecked in marble.
In addition to staff, there’s plenty off room for stuff, with more storage space in the basement–in case the endless chambers of your sky palace aren’t sufficient.
