Getting tired of your windowless closet, better known as a New York apartment? Or maybe you’ve decided to give your roommate —  or uninvited guests (mice I’m looking at you) — some space and are on the market for a new home.

Well, if you have a spare $26 million to drop on a new crib, super star Lauren Bacall’s 9-room apartment overlooking Central Park just hit the market, and It. Is. Epic.

Bacall, who died earlier this year, moved into the iconic Dakota Building (where John Lennon lived — and died) on New York’s Upper West Side in 1961. The real estate listing does a great job on the sell, we think. Talk about descriptive adjectives!

The listing goes on to describe the elegance of the formal dining room, and the ever important west wing.

So if you’re interested, get moving. Because in our dearly departed Lauren’s famous words, “Patience was not my strong point.” The market feels the same way.

Here’s a sneak peek:
