Looks like the De Blasios aren’t the only mayoral figures making moves. Dan Doctoroff, former Deputy Mayor and current President & CEO of Bloomberg L.P., has sold his Upper West Side townhouse at 309 West 91st Street for $11.25 million, slightly less than the $13 million asking price from when the home went on the market in November 2013. He and his wife Alisa purchased the mini mansion in 1994 for $1 million out of foreclosure and then put millions into a gut renovation.

The five-story, stately townhouse was built in 1896 by Clarence True, one of the most prominent architects on the Upper West Side around the turn of the century. It is one of a row of seven limestone masterpieces that feature True’s signature low-stoop façade. The Doctoroffs had the home impeccably restored by architect Oliver Cope and designer Victoria Hagan, down to every last elegant detail, including four wood-burning fireplaces, a winding sky-lit staircase, and spectacular crown moldings.

The 25-foot-wide home boasts an elevator as well as seven bedrooms. The finished basement features a gym, and a deck can easily be installed behind the mansard roof. Handsome built-ins and subtle picture moldings abound, and in the formal living room are floor-to-ceiling bay windows.

The formal dining room is also highlighted by a trio of bay windows, and adjacent is a convenient service kitchen. The chef’s kitchen includes a sunny breakfast nook that opens up to the landscaped backyard garden.

Mr. and Mrs. Doctoroff put their house on the market in hopes of moving to a smaller space now that their kids are all off to college. We’re eager to see what they consider downsizing…
