Built between 1899 and 1901, the Beaux Arts limestone building includes a grand mahogany staircase lit up by a Tiffany-stained glass skylight, along with eight fireplaces and nine bedrooms. It was designed by architect Robert D. Kohn and is listed on the National Register of Historic PlacesThe building’s rooftop terrace overlooks Riverside Park and the Hudson River.

In 2016, comedian Amy Schumer visited the home, then priced at $15 million, as she sought to sell her own Upper West Side penthouse at 129 West 80th Street.

The Corcoran Group‘s Cathy Franklin, Alexis Bodenheimer and Marion Smith had the listing.
