The crowning jewel of the illustrious Hotel des Artistes is a 7,652’ penthouse, with an extraordinary double-height Great Room (55' x 21'6" with 18'9" ceilings) expansive Central Park views and open northern exposures. Upstairs, the versatile floorplan provides for as many as four bedrooms. A spectacular Penthouse Study, with three exposures, overlooks an 827’ terrace with beautiful park and city views. Once home to Rudolph Valentino, the apartment’s East Wing includes a Library, a corner two-story Living Room/Studio with fireplace, and dramatic views of Central Park. The original stairway, with beautifully restored architectural millwork, leads to two additional bedrooms.
Designed for the current owner by late legendary architectural icon Ettore Sottsass, this extraordinary residence represents a unique marriage of two exceptional 20th century architectural styles. High atop the finest cooperative apartment building in the West 67th Street Artists' Colony Historic District and included in the National Register of Historic Places, the Hotel des Artistes was developed by Walter Russell, as an artist's cooperative apartment in 1917. The 18-story prewar residential coop was designed by George M. Pollard. Only hotels were permitted to be built to this height, so hotel amenities were provided. Though the building never functioned as a hotel, its amenities were and still are very impressive. They include a swimming pool, two workout rooms, squash and basketball courts as well as a roof garden and the highly-regarded Leopard at Des Artistes restaurant. The neo-Gothic-style building, which has a canopied entrance and large lobby, has a both a concierge and attended elevator. The building is individually landmarked and falls within the boundaries of the Upper West Side Historic District, as designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission.
