Building Description

One of the Upper West Side's architectural gems, The Dorilton is a unique hybrid Second French Empire and Beaux-Arts co-op at 171 West 71st Street, a premier address in one of Manhattan's most established neighborhoods. Overlooking the bustling intersection of Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue and its two pocket parks, The Dorilton is instantly recognizable with its exquisite stone façade, deep red walls, and numerous ornamental touches. The Dorilton is a registered historic property and, despite its age, sits in a league of its own in luxury. The Dorilton's French-inspired exterior carries over to its residences for sale, each containing a wealth of pre-war charm. Small, intimate spaces are the norm, with nooks and angular rooms abound. Detailed crown molding and solid wood floors tie each room together, a touch lost in contemporary Manhattan construction. Oversized windows look out onto small Parisian balconies, bringing in with them light to fill up even the homiest of spaces. At the same time, The Dorilton has not forgotten the advantages of posh modern living; kitchens are outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances, either stainless steel or built to fit in with the surrounding wooden cabinetry. In addition, each apartment for sale at The Dorilton also has a personal washer and dryer. As sumptuous as its interiors and façade are, The Dorilton still offers its residents a number of amenities. In true old New York City style, there is a 24-hour doorman, while a private roof terrace and courtyard provide great places to relax, or in the former's case, enjoy a breathtaking view of the Midtown Manhattan skyline and Central Park. Almost all apartmentas at The Dorilton have fireplaces and balconies, a rare combination in most of New York City, but one that adds a touch of elegance, as if The Dorilton were lacking in that department. Residents also have access to bike storage, quite useful considering how many new bike lanes and paths have been created on the Upper West Side and the rest of Manhattan. With a prime location, stunning architecture, and a host of amenities, 171 West 71st Street is hard to pass up indeed.
