The Horatio Street apartment features two bedrooms and two bathrooms

The West Village home of the late neurologist and author Oliver Sacks is now on the market for $3.25 million, the Observer reports. The two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment is located in a building on Horatio Street, which is also home to talk show host Andy Cohen and actress Sally Field.

Sacks died in October last year, and in the last few years of his life he had begun using the space on Horatio Street primarily as an office, according to the Observer. He purchased the apartment in 1995 and used it as an office and home for several years.Some of the great features in the West Village co-op include a wood burning fireplace, beamed ceilings and refinished hardwood floors.

Sacks will perhaps best be remembered for authoring the critically acclaimed book, Awakenings, which was subsequently made into an Academy Award-nominated film in 1990 starring Robin Williams (as Sacks) and Robert De Niro.
