The Kleeberg Residence—a stunning, 18-room, 11,000-square-foot mansion at 3 Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side—made a splash in 2013 when it hit the market asking a whopping $40 million. Now, two years later and after a few months spent off the market, the French Renaissance Revival home has received a 33 percent slash in price, and it's now asking a (slightly) less bonkers $27 million.
The house was built in the 1890s and has a gorgeous carved limestone facade, a roof with copper trim, 18 rooms, and nine gaslit fireplaces, among other lovely features brought in by current owners, developer Regina Kislin and photographer Anatoly Siyagine. They bought the house in 1995 for $10 million and spent 20 years restoring it to its former grandeur.
Dexter Guerrieri of Vandenberg was just brought in to handle the sale, and he told the Wall Street Journal that he's in the process of restaging the house to "accentuate its Hudson River views and light from tall bay windows."
"All indicators point to the fact that this is now valued correctly," he said.
