The New York City co-op the late actress Lauren Bacall called home for more than half a century has sold for $21 million, public records show.

Thirteen-foot-high ceilings give the Dakota building apartment an airy feeling. Views from the nine-room unit take in treetops, Central Park and the Manhattan cityscape.

Among original features is the foyer fireplace. Rooms opening off the 70-foot-long central hall include a living room, a library and a formal dining room.

Pocket doors, wainscoting and a corner china cabinet are among details in the dining room, which has a fireplace and connects to a butler’s pantry.


The cozy library has its original pocket doors, a fireplace and a floor-to-ceiling window with a small overlook balcony. Mahogany doors lead to the living room, where there’s another fireplace.

The Dakota was built in 1884.

Bacall, who died last year at 89, worked with Humphrey Bogart in the 1940s films as “To Have and Have Not,” “The Big Sleep” and “Key Largo.” They were married in 1945.


More recently, she starred in the “The Forger” (2012).

Rebecca I. Edwardson of Warburg Realty Partnership was the listing agent.
