$6.95 Million Dollar UWS Duplex Complete With Packed Library (PHOTOS)

It isn't unusual for luxury Manhattan apartments to feature libraries. One such place, a duplex for sale in the legendary Upper West Side Hotel Des Artistes building, comes with a library and over 2,500 books including rare first editions and signed copies.

The nine room duplex has the building's signature 'great room' with dramatic, double height windows and warm, oak wood paneling. It also has a media room with a wine cave, a formal dining room and an upper mezzanine level that connects the the two bedroom wings.

The property is currently selling for $6,950,000 and Nikkie Field and Patricia Wheatley of Sotheby's International Realty hold the listing.
