A four-bedroom prewar duplex on Central Park West owned by one family for 21 years is about to enter the market at $12.25 million. Mack and Jeannette Rossoff are selling their co-op residence at 101 Central Park West between 70th and 71st streets after employing architect Annabelle Selldorf and interior designer Victoria Hagan to give their home a makeover.

The 4,100-square-foot apartment has an antique French marble fireplace in the 28-by-16-foot corner living room. Ceilings are 9.5 feet high.

The couple said they hired Selldorf, then early in her career, on the advice of an architect who was renovating actor Harrison Ford’s apartment down the hallway.

“We interviewed all three people he suggested,” Mack Rossof told the New York Times, “but Annabelle, who he’d described as a young genius, was the person whose ideas for transforming the apartment were right on the same wavelength as ours. She basically stripped it back to its original great bones.”

On the main level, the 24-by-15-foot dining room has a picture window that overlooks the West Side cityscape and French doors opening onto a planted terrace. The 19-by-19-foot kitchen has a marble floor, maple cabinetry and a double-size Viking stove.

The monthly maintenance for the 10-room, 5-bath apartment is $6,702. [NYT] – James Comtois
