A duplex in one of New York City’s most famous buildings is now available. Located at 1 West 67th Street on the Upper West Side, the neo-Gothic style Hotel des Artistes was built in 1915 as an artist’s co-op building and has been home to notable residents over the last century, including the dancer Isadora Duncan, former NYC mayor John Lindsay, and artist Norman Rockwell. On the market for $3,495,000 is a one-bedroom with soaring 20-foot ceilings, colossal south-facing windows, and a balcony overlooking the great room.

Through the foyer, enter the appropriately-named great room, which measures 30 feet long and boasts two huge industrial-style windows that illuminate the space all day. A staircase with a glass railing leads from the living room to the indoor balcony/ walkway and the upper lofted level.

The tucked-away eat-in kitchen has been upgraded to include top-of-the-line appliances and custom cabinetry, according to the listing. As part of the great room, a formal dining room has enough space for eight.

The upper level boasts the primary suite, which includes a dressing room and lots of built-in closets. The main bathroom has both a tub and a stall shower. A powder room can be found on the main floor.

The apartment also has a separate maid’s room/office, with a half bath and laundry on the same floor. Modern upgrades include central air-conditioning and built-in speakers.

While it was never actually a hotel, the Hotel des Artistes does offer residents hotel-like amenities, including a full-time concierge, an elevator operator, a swimming pool, squash court, workout rooms, and landscaped rooftop. Italian restaurant The Leopard occupies the ground floor of the landmarked building and offers residents a discount. Considered the largest “studio” building in the city, the 18-story Hotel des Artistes contains 115 apartments, most duplexes.
