A nine-room apartment formerly home of Judy Garland is up for sale on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Located in the Dakota apartment building on West 72nd Street, one of the city’s most iconic residential buildins, the property has been meticulously renovated, putting then 25-year-old Sasha Bikoff onto the map of (not just) interior design enthusiasts.

With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, the apartment exudes the lush extravaganza you’d expect from the walls which formerly housed a grand dame, although there have been voices saying Garland lived in another flat.

Nearly every room features a functional, historic fireplace.

Generously (over)sized, the public rooms benefit from plenty of sunshine, while seven wood-burning fireplaces add to the apartment’s timeless feeling; currently sealed, they can easily be restored to their original use.

A bright, candy-sweet color scheme draws attention to the property’s carefully curated Renaissance features, from sweeping 13-foot ceilings and French doors to restored hardwood floors and lacquered walls.

The dining room proves formal doesn't always mean neutral colors.

Leading through to the formal dining room, with its crisp, Tiffany Blue walls and peach upholstery, is a Chef’s eat-in kitchen, complete with marble worktops, custom-made cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances.

State of the art: the Chef's kitchen features everything you could ask for.

And in the master bedroom, a modern four-poster bed neatly blends into the light, yet elegant atmosphere created by the wallpaper’s floral pattern and the pastel color scheme.

Lavishly decorated yet warm, the master bedroom feels inviting and open.
