The New York City apartment of legendary screen actress Lauren Bacall was placed on the market for $26 million earlier this month by listing agent Rebecca Edwardson of Warburg Realty. The apartment is located in The Dakota, the iconic New York building considered one of the city's most exclusive and luxurious residential properties.
Bacall, who purchased the residence soon after Humphrey Bogart's death, lived in Apartment 43 until her death earlier this year. Now, the sprawling apartment overlooking Central Park is being listed by Warburg Realty.

Most of the three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath apartment is outfitted in mahogany and beautiful hardwood floors. The pre-war apartment has nine rooms total, five of which overlook the park. The residence also boasts 13-foot ceilings, multiple fireplaces, a Juliet balcony, library, gallery, "Great Room" and formal dining room.
The Dakota opened in 1884 and was designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, the same architect responsible for The Plaza Hotel. Since its opening, The Dakota has been home to multiple celebrities and members of the arts, including John Lennon, who was shot outside the building in 1980.
Edwardson told HuffPost Home via email that “No furniture is being offered, though some of it will be available for purchase through the upcoming Bonhams auction."
