The Dorilton is a Beaux-Arts style limestone building and a New York City landmark.Touted as one of the upper west side’s most iconic cooperatives. Architecture historians regard it as one of the city’s great apartment building. The captivating beauty of the exterior facade compliments the meticulously restored interior design of this two-bedroom residence. The prewar experience begins with the grandeur of the lobby and the semi-private elevator vestibule. There is a unified merging of past with present, historic with reimagined, and antiquity with modernity. Every element of the design has been considered as evident in the quality of the materials, integration of smart home technology and the superior execution of its finishes. Its contemporary essence is in its function, form and open floor plan. The elegance of design moves you seamlessly from the living room to the dining area to the kitchen. The chef’s kitchen has a windowed sink with open views and radiant light. The brilliantly replicated prewar archways leads to 2 winged bedrooms. The master bedroom has a sumptuous en-suite bath and walk-in closet. The second bedroom boasts closets galore, decorative fireplace with gilded mirror and custom library shelves. No detail has been overlooked from the herringbone flooring to the window seats, brass hardware, 1920’s Art-Nouveaux style glass window, built-in desk area, crown moldings and high coffered ceilings. Every inch of space is maximized with exceptional millwork. Light streams through from 3 exposures. There is a feeling of Paris outside the windows. Other features include Miele washer/dryer and central air.
The Dorilton is a full-service prewar cooperative with a spectacular roof deck and courtyard entry. Historian Andrew Dolkart thinks it may be "the most flamboyant apartment house in New York," with its striking, "French-inspired" sculpted figures and an enormous iron gate "reminiscent of those that guard French palaces." This exceptional home awaits.
