 A intensely decorative unit in the Upper West Side’s tony Dorilton building has hit the market asking  $9.99 million.

The 1902 Beaux-Arts co-op building, located at 171 West 71st Street, has been called the “the most flamboyant apartment house in New York,” by Columbia University’s architecture historian Andrew Dolkart, and the newly listed unit’s interior certainly isn’t short on panache either.

The six-bedroom, five-bathroom unit features beamed ceilings, inlaid floors, leaded beveled glass windows, and detailed kitchen cabinetry, according to Curbed. The owners have literally decked the halls with artwork and mirrors, as well as filling the apartment with ABC Carpet’s full inventory of chairs. And, if you are lucky, you might even score a free New York Times subscription, since the paper’s publisher, Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger Jr., lives upstairs.
