Comedian Amy Schumer is certainly looking to trade up from her modest one-bedroom on the Upper West Side. According to the Post, comedy’s It Girl was recently spotted scoping out a $15 million mansion at 352 Riverside Drive, apparently dropping in for a peek after a run. The Beaux Arts-styled property dates back to 1900 and was designed by architect Robert D. Kohn for Adolphe Openhym, a wealthy silk merchant. As one would expect, the nine-bedroom home comes dripping in handcrafted details, including eight wood-burning fireplaces, ornate crown moulding and mahogany and oak staircases, among other details that harken to the mansion’s storied past like its original dumbwaiter and staff call buttons.

Per the listing, the 26-foot-wide property boasts 9,400 square feet above grade, with an additional 1,920 square feet in the basement and 3,4o0 square feet of outdoor space in the form of a 20 x 40-foot terrace, 15 x 100-foot garden and 41 x 40-foot side garden with fountain. It’s also sited on a generously sized 41-foot lot and enjoys east, west and south exposures.

The five-floor home also maintains its original floor plan in addition to much of its historic details, most notably a massive Tiffany skylight. All in all there are nine bedrooms, six full baths, three half baths, formal and informal dining rooms, more than one large living room, a corner master bedroom, main and serving kitchens and a rear service staircase.

The listing attributes the home’s pristine condition to the fact that only four people have owned the property over the last century, “each dedicated to the historic preservation” of the property as architect Robert D. Kohn envisioned.

As we previously mentioned, Schumer listed her one-bedroom property nearly one year ago for $2M. It has yet to sell.
