    Mark Schwartz and the Riverside mansion

    Goldman Sachs honcho Mark Schwartz, one of just four vice chairmen at the global investment bank, has been revealed as the buyer of Manhattan’s last freestanding single-family mansion, the Schinasi House at 351 Riverside Drive, thanks to public records filed with the city today.

    Shwartz and his wife, Lisa, have been based in Beijing since June 2012, since Goldman appointed him chairman of the bank’s Asia-Pacific region, the highest-level executive ever posted to China. But they clearly made time to consummate the $14 million deal for the property, which closed Aug. 8. The deal was previously reported by the Wall Street Journal, which did not identify the buyer.

    The Upper West Side’s last existing freestanding single-family mansion, the Schinasi House at 351 Riverside Drive, has finally found a buyer after several rounds of price cuts, the New York Observer reported.

    The 12,000-square-foot, white marble French Renaissance home was most recently on the market for $13.5 million, down from the original $31 million asking price. [more]


  • Corcoran agent Tod Mercy and 351 Riverside Drive

    Manhattan’s last existing freestanding single-family mansion, the Schinasi House at 351 Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side, has been relisted today after several years of moving on and off the market, according to data from Streeteasy.com, but with two differences. Owner and Columbia University professor Hans Smit has switched up brokers, swapping Felise Gross and Diane Abrams of Brown Harris Stevens, who have had the listing since 2006, for Tod Mercy, an agent at the Corcoran Group, and slashing the price significantly.

    The property, which was initially listed for $31 million in 2006, then $30 million in 2007 and $25 million last year, is now asking only $14.95 million, a veritable bargain for a 41-foot-wide house with 12,000 square feet of interior space and 3,400 square feet of exterior space.


  • The Schinasi House at 351 Riverside Drive

    The longtime owners of the Upper West Side’s Schinasi House, the 12,000-square-foot mansion at 351 Riverside Drive, have slashed their asking price to $20 million in an attempt to take advantage of a recent rebound in Manhattan townhouse sales, the listing broker said today. That’s still a potentially record-breaking price for a single-family home on the Upper West Side.

    The house, whose listing boasts that it is the last free-standing, single-family mansion in the borough, was originally asking $31 million when it hit the market in 2006. It has been on and off the market since then, most recently asking $24.9 million. … [more]

  • Biggest price cut of the day

    May 21, 2009 04:39PM

    The home to see the biggest price cut today is a
    townhouse at 351 Riverside Drive, according to Streeteasy.com, which
    Brown Harris Stevens calls the only free-standing, single-family mansion
    in Manhattan. The price of the 12,000-square-foot home was lowered by
    $5 million, and it is now on the market for $25 million. The mansion is
    listed for 17 percent less than its original price of $30 million when
    it first went on the market in December 2007. Brown Harris Stevens’
    Diane Abrams and Felise Gross have the listing. The home, which has
    3,400 square feet of outdoor space, was built in 1909 by William
    Tuthill, the architect who designed Carnegie Hall. TRD
