When you think of a palace, you probably picture a large stretch of land nestled between hills covered with forests. But, have you ever thought you could find one in the busiest city in the country? New York City never ceases to surprise us and, this time, it’s with a gorgeous mansion rightfully referred to as a palace and offered for rent by Sotheby’s International Realty.
Despite its location on the Upper West Side right next to Broadway and equally distant from the Hudson River and Central Park, this incredible mansion spans more than 12,000 square feet with exquisitely tall 12-foot+ ceilings.
- Brokered by Sotheby’s International Realty
- Represented by Elizabeth L. Sample and Brenda S. Powers
- Address: 25 Riverside Drive, New York, New York, 10023
- Rooms: 7 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 partial bathrooms, 1 garage
- Rent: $100,000 per month
The mansion is a staple of exclusivity and luxury, adorned with heritage pieces and details brought together from all around the world. The space features seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, two partial bathrooms, three kitchens, six fireplaces and an elevator to connect all seven floors. It’s also equipped with a guest house, a library, an indoor pool, gardens, a fitness center, a media room, a spa and other amenities.
Additionally, the mint-condition flooring is centuries old and imported from Parisian palaces. The primary rooms of the house have also been retrofitted with exotic woods, and major detailing pieces were sourced from period woodwork. In particular, mahogany and chestnut wood species are abundant in a 10-person theater and full library.
The European feel is also conveyed by pieces imported from Victorian-era mansions and Parisian palaces, and the exotic touches are reinforced by elements such as the Indian marble floors — which are no longer produced — and other fine pieces, such as an island clad in Brazilian red stone.
However, the central features of this property are the amazing views it provides per the exquisite location of the mansion, which includes a terrace overlooking Riverside Park. Check out the slideshow below for the other amazing features of this palatial mansion, from the marble foyer to the elegant artwork and details of every room.
