Lauren Bacall’s Dakota Condo Hits the Market at $26 Million

Take a look at the late legendary actress's former Manhattan home.

Lauren Bacall’s former apartment in Manhattan’s famous Dakota building officially came onto the market with a price tag of $26 million, according to Forbes.

The late screen legend‘s nine-room co-op in the tony Manhattan landmark was the actress’ primary residence from the 1960s until her death at age 89 in August 2014. Bacall owned the elegant apartment in the highly coveted Central Park location since 1961, when she bought it for $48,000.

According to Erin Carlyle at Forbes, The Dakota 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.”

Residences in the building, located at a prestigious Upper West Side address, are hard to come by, and even harder to afford. Bacall’s for-sale unit has a $26 million price tag, as well as $11,146 in monthly maintenance charges, which aren’t unusually high for a swank Manhattan building, but they’re not for those on a tight budget.

Got the cash to spend on an apartment at the creme de la creme of NYC addresses?

If you do, Bacall’s unit offers 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 13-foot ceilings, and a 70-foot-long gallery connecting the major public rooms, including the library, great room, and formal dining room, which looks out onto sweeping Central Park views.

Warburg Realty Partnership holds the listing.
