An Upper East Side townhouse that once belonged to famed composer Franz Waxman has hit the market asking $22.5 million.

The 10,253-square-foot house, located at 46 East 65 Street, was built in 1916 and still has many of the original details that make New York townhouse buyers jump for joy, according to Curbed. There are also seven-bedrooms, nine bathrooms, six wood-burning fireplaces, three terraces, three balconies and an elevator.

The house’s famed former resident, Oscar-winner Waxman, is mostly known for his work in films including ‘Rear Window,’ ‘The Bride of Frankenstein,’ ‘Sunset Boulevard’ and ‘A Place in the Sun.’

There is a downside, though. The home is still split into three apartments and therefore in need of a bit of renovation to restore it to a single-family mansion.

Sandra Balan and Samantha Pinkowitz of Brown Harris Stevens have the listings. Check out the images below.
