Mansion with Dakota Views Hits Market

An 18 room mansion overlooking the historic Dakota has hit the market. Located at 5 West 73rd Street, the Beaux-Arts property spans 20 feet in width, with 9,575 total square feet of interior space.

The layout consists of 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. It’s on the market for $17,995,000.

Also known as the 1903 Strasburger House, 5 West 73rd Street was designed in the Beaux-Arts style by the architectural firm Welch, Smith and Provot. They also created the Duke-Semans Mansion on Fifth Avenue, which was later owned by Carlos Slim.


The colorful exterior features a red brick and limestone facade and a charming mansard roof. You’ve seen this house before!
