Legendary actress Lauren Bacall’s apartment at the Dakota has been listed on sale for $26 million. Her apartment is in the Dakota Building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side which is one of the city’s most iconic residences, and has been home to many notable names, from football legend John Madden to billionaire financier Wilbur Ross to John Lennon, who was murdered there. The 4,000 square foot apartment with nine rooms in total has three bedrooms, 3.5-baths, five fireplaces, and six windows that look over Central Park, one of which includes a Juliet balcony.
It retains the original layout and many pre-war details, from the mahogany paneling to to the hardware on the doors. “She was really diligent about maintaining and keeping the original detail of the apartment,” notes listing agent Rebecca Edwardson of Warburg Realty, adding that many owners at the building have knocked down walls and modernized their apartments.
The late Hollywood star who died in August at the age of 89, bought the pad in the late ’60s with her second husband Jason Robards and lived there for the remainder of her life.
