The 114-year-old mansion features six bedrooms and four bathrooms

A six-story limestone townhouse, just one house over from the Guggenheim Museum, is now on the market for $29.95 million. The Beaux Arts style mansion is located at 7 East 88th Street and features six bedrooms and four bathrooms spread out across all of its floors.

Some of the standout features of this mansion include the large solarium on the fifth floor, a central skylight, 12-foot-tall ceilings on the parlor floor, a rear garden (not pictured) and a roof deck.

The mansion opens up into the parlor, which features a main staircase, and an elevator that connects all floors of the building. This floor also features a kitchen, with an attached breakfast area. The living and dining rooms are on the floor above that, and five of the townhouse’s six bedrooms take up the top three floors of the building—the master suite takes up the entire third floor.

The mansion was built between 1902-1903 and designed by architects James R. Turner and William G. Killian. At present the townhouse is configured as a four-unit house with two triplexes and two simplexes, but the broker on the property—Caylyn Sullivan of Leslie J. Garfield—says its an excellent opportunity to create a single-family home.
