Inside Lauren Bacall’s Lavish New York City Apartment

LAUREN BACALL

Actress Lauren Bacall raised her three children and entertained legends like Anjelica Huston, Barbra Streisand, and Ted Kennedy in her nine-bedroom apartment at The Dakota on the Upper West Side of New York City. After Bacall’s death, in 2014 at the age of 89, her estate put the property on the market for $26 million.

After a price reduction, it sold last week for $21 million, according to the New York Times. Warburg Realty had the listing and the buyers were Ronald N. Beck, a managing director of Oaktree Capital Management, and his wife.

Below, a look at the 4,000-square-foot residence.

The dining room has 11-foot pocket doors, wainscoting, a fireplace, a china closet, and a swinging door that leads to the butler’s pantry.

The unit has approximately 100 feet of Central Park frontage, so about half of the apartment gets park views.
