If you’re familiar with New York City real estate, you know it’s pretty rare to find a single-family mansion that’s still brimming with most of its original details. That’s what makes the Carroll Mansion, located at 86 Riverside Drive in Manhattan, so special.
Built in 1898 by famed architect Clarence True, the five-story Elizabethan Renaissance Revival mansion is still intact and spans 8,434 square feet. The light-filled property is brimming with original architectural details, ranging from limestone accents and coffered ceilings to ornate mantels. It offers both northern and western light, along with impressive Riverside Park views.
It is a great opportunity for someone to restore a magnificent home in an amazing location directly across from Riverside Park. The five-story Carroll Mansion, built by architect Clarence True in 1898, is on sale for $8 million.
It is located at 86 Riverside Drive in New York City.
Upon entering, you’ll find a foyer with wood panels plus a striking staircase with intricate carved details. This leads to a wood paneled reception room with bay windows, plus a kitchen, pantry, two bathrooms, and a side entrance from 81st Street.
The second floor—the parlor—has a spacious landing, complete with French doors leading to a terrace with views of Riverside Park. There are also two spacious entertaining rooms, as well as a bathroom, and pantry area behind the dining room. The third floor features four large bedrooms with stunning views.
