Legendary TV host and interviewer extraordinaire Dick Cavett is officially parting ways with his Upper West Side home: 6sqft reports that Cavett has listed his apartment within the Kenilworth, a century-old co-op building with just 39 apartments. Cavett bought the place back in 2010 for $4.2 million, and it’s now listed with Corcoran’s Karen Kelley for $5.995 million.
Though it was apparently renovated before Cavett moved in, the place doesn’t appear to have been given a thoroughly modern upgrade; instead, it has a classic New York co-op feel, with a gracious floorplan—the living and sleeping areas are separate by the entry foyer—and vintage details like beamed ceilings and wooden millwork.
The listing plays these details up to the extreme: the dining room, for instance, has oak wall panels whose “beautiful century-old patina is beautiful and rare”; the master bedroom, meanwhile, is “fit for Royals,” with upholstered walls, Central Park views, and a huge en-suite bathroom.
But there have been some modern conveniences added, including central air conditioning and snazzy new kitchen appliances. (The black-and-white checked floor therein, though, is very old-school.) The apartment itself has three bedrooms and three bathrooms spread out across its many square feet.
