There's another Upper East Side mansion seeking a millionaire to turn it back into a single-family home. Yesterday, it was reported that Brandeis University would join the crowd of non-profits and cultural institutions selling off their headquarters, and now the listing for the $33 million, 25-wide house at 12 East 77th Street is live, giving a look inside the historic building. Built in 1895, the house was owned from 1916 to 1925 by Reginald Vanderbilt, great-grandson of Cornelius, and it retains a lot of original details. It's being marketed as "a rare opportunity to turn a special historic property back to a single-family home," even though the broker told the Journal that such a conversion would require "extensive work." But hey, rich people seem to like these DIY projects, so someone will probably snatch it up.
