171 W 71ST Street Unit: PHW

Built in 1902 and designed by the New York-based architectural firm of Janes & Leo for real estate developer Hamilton M. Weed, the grand and beautiful Dorilton was constructed in the Beaux-Arts style and is rightfully regarded as an architectural tour de force. One enters the esteemed prewar cooperative building through an enormous iron gate and into a beautiful and ornate lobby. From a semi-private landing, enter this extraordinary duplex residence through a gracious Gallery filled with sunlight. The large angled corner Living Room is anchored around an elaborate, marble-mantled decorative fireplace and picture windows facing south and west. Through French doors is a cozy Den. Adjacent, an elegant square Dining Room with another decorative fireplace and large window facing East completes this gracious entertaining space. The windowed eat-in chef's Kitchen is properly appointed with top of the line appliances and a large, windowed pantry and storage room. An additional full bathroom can also be found on this side of the home. On the west side off the entrance gallery is the Primary Bedroom suite with separate Office or additional Bedroom and a Bathroom with a beautiful stained-glass window. The upper floor is connected by an internal stair and can also be accessed from the service elevator. This floor boasts a lushly planted terrace, providing a sunny and private garden oasis. Also, on this level are two additional Bedrooms and Bathrooms as well as a large and inviting Den with a cozy gas fireplace. The slanted roofline windows provide stunning views of the architectural details of the prewar buildings which dot the westside skyline. There is a full laundry room, an enormous walk-in storage closet, and a pull-down ladder leading to a square attic for additional storage. This unique residence was recently renovated by designer Alan Wanzenberg and features exceptional original moldings and architectural details, stunning herringbone wood floors, and a wonderfully flexible floorplan for gracious entertaining and comfortable family living. There is a multi-zone HVAC system and a Sonos sound system. The landmarked Dorilton at 71st Street and Broadway is fully staffed and has a wonderful manicured roof deck with dining tables and lounge chairs. Pets, subletting, and pied-à-terre allowed. 75% financing permitted.
