Known as the Carroll Mansion, a 50 foot wide property at 86 Riverside Drive, located at 81st Street, has hit the market for $8 million. The massive house was built in 1898 by Clarence True, a defining architect of the Upper West Side and the man behind many of the most beautiful townhouses in the neighborhood.
The massive limestone mansion comes with 19 rooms spread across 5 floors, and an approximate total square footage of 8,434′.
All original detail is intact – but the ideal buyer is definitely someone who’s willing to put in some work!
With 9 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, the exquisite Riverside Drive property is filled with original woodwork. This baronial wooden staircase is accompanied by decorative panels.
Sunlight is ample – and there are views of Riverside Park from every room.
A grand ballroom takes up almost the entire fourth floor; this huge space is equipped with seven arched windows facing the park.
There are also bay windows on four out of five floors; those pictured below face north.
Additional features include four planting terraces, sliding French doors, wood paneling, coffered ceilings, original mantles, fireplaces and built-in bookcases throughout.
