Within the Riverside Drive-West 80th-81st Street Historic District on the Upper West Side, there’s a row of eight stunning townhouses built in the Elizabethan Renaissance Revival style. The row was designed by the prominent architect Clarence True, who contributed greatly to the development surrounding Riverside Park. Elegant properties like this one at 320 West 80th Street attracted the New York City elite around the turn of the century, and not much has changed today. Now the mansion is on the market for $14 million.

If you’re impressed by the exterior of the home, you will not be disappointed upon walking inside. Original details include eight original fireplaces, original wood paneling, pocket doors, the original flooring, beams, and stairs.

The original staircase is located right in the center of the house, which is unique. But it’s actually a hallmark of Clarence True’s design, and creates space in the upper floors of the home.

If you haven’t already guessed, this mansion comes with tons of space–6,500 square feet, to be exact. The price tag will get you five bedrooms, two kitchens, a library, family room, and a sky-lit media room.

The whole house is serviced by an elevator as well. And there’s a private, south-facing garden. Are you drooling yet? Last year we featured another townhouse within this row that’s a little less extravagant and sold for $11.25 million. Let’s see if this one gets its hefty asking price.
