This Week’s Price Chop – The Eldorado, Apt 7-D2
Swoon over Central Park in this oversized two bedroom apartment at the iconic Eldorado on Central Park West. This full service co-op, one of the “Great Dames” that adorn CPW, is readily identified for its twin towers that majestically loom over the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.
The landmarked Eldorado encompasses the entire blockfront between West 90th Street and West 91st Street. Completed in 1931 and designed by acclaimed architect Emery Roth, this classic art-deco structure rises 31 floors and contains 208 apartments, mostly two and three-bedroom units.
Apartment 7-D2, offers 30 feet of open views across Central Park. If you can pull yourself away from the windows, there is plenty more to take in from this fine home. There is a generously sized foyer and an equally welcoming gallery space before you reach the kitchen. The bedrooms are split, each one with an en suite bath. The master bedroom fronts the park and offers scintillating views through two oversized casement windows. The Living/Dining area measures out at 27’6” x 19’ and provides equally impressive views through three windows. The living area has a decorative fireplace as well.
Additional features include herringbone floors, beamed ceilings, a windowed gourmet kitchen with top-end stainless steel appliances and ceiling heights north of nine feet.
Well known residents, past and present, have included Sinclair Lewis, Groucho Marx, Richard Dreyfus, Faye Dunaway, Ron Howard, Bono, Michael J. Fox and Bruce Willis.
The price on this timeless apartment has been chopped by more than 20 percent, from $2,500,000 to $1,995,000. It isn’t often that apartments at The Eldorado become available for under $2 million. In fact, they are few and far between.
