Lauren Bacall’s home at the Dakota, where the legendary actress resided for more than half a century until her death earlier this month, will soon hit the market.

The star of “The Big Sleep” purchased the home in 1961 for $48,000 and counted Boris Karloff, Judy Holliday and Roberta Flack among her neighbors, the New York Post reported. She raised her children with second husband, actor Jason Robards, in the apartment.

Bacall’s home was appraised at $9 million shortly before she passed away, according to the newspaper. [NYP, 2nd]Tom DiChristopher
