Property Description

On the market for the first time in four decades, Residence 501-502, a spacious 3BR/2BA duplex, in the iconic Hotel des Artistes has both a fascinating history and classic architecture. The home of Reese Schonfeld, the co-founder of CNN and the founder and first president of the Food Network and his wife, Patricia O’Gorman, a television executive, (who purchased it from director Mike Nichols and his novelist wife Annabel Davis-Goff) this apartment is resplendent with original details. The entry foyer, separate dining room and living room feature beautiful wood paneling, stained glass windows and an original staircase to the second floor. Adjacent to the living room is the great room/library with its soaring 18’10” ceiling and 14’ windows with views of the city and a majestic cupola. Both the dining room and the great room/ library have access to the spacious kitchen with separate butler's pantry as well as access to an additional staircase to the second floor bedrooms. The sun-kissed primary bedroom has two exposures, north and east, with a lovely view of the treetops of Central Park over the church dome – imagine waking up to that! Two additional well-appointed bedrooms, one with an ensuite bath and a balcony overlooking the great room, complete this home. Due to the duplex nature of the Hotel des Artistes, Residence 501-502 is actually on the 7th and 8th floors. With Board approval, central air conditioning, a washer/dryer and a first floor powder room could be added. The Hotel des Artistes is a full service cooperative with amenities not often available in pre-war buildings, including full-time concierge and elevator operator, a swimming pool, a squash court with a basketball hoop, two workout rooms as well as a charming high-walled roof deck. The Leopard at the des Artistes offers romantic outdoor and indoor dining as well as room service — all at a discount for des Artistes residents. Ideally located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the Hotel des Artistes is close to the nature of Central Park, the cultural events of Lincoln Center and boutique shopping and popular dining on Columbus Avenue. Built in 1917 as a home for artists, the Hotel des Artistes is a majestic 18-story building with a Gothic-style facade featuring charming gargoyles of painters, sculptors and writers. Designed by the architect George Mort Pollard, the building has been home to many of the famed and illustrious, including Noel Coward, Isadora Duncan, writer Fannie Hurst, Alexander Woollcott, Norman Rockwell and Joel Grey.
