The Kleeberg Residence, a French Renaissance revival home overlooking Riverside Park on the Upper West Side, has hit the market with an asking price of $40 million, the New York Times reported. The home, at 3 Riverside Drive at 73rd Street boasts six-bedrooms, not including the one for “staff,” eight and one-half bathrooms and nine fireplaces, the Times said.

The 37-foot-wide limestone building was designed by Charles Pierrepont Gilbert and is currently owned by Regina Kislin, a real estate developer, and her husband Anatoly Siyagine, a photographer, according to the Times. The couple bought the grandiose home for less than $10 million in 1995.

The property is named for Philip Kleeberg, a lace importer, who built the home for himself, his wife and the ever-rotating cast of women he cavorted with, in 1896.
