Known as the Alderbrook Mansion, this Gothic-Revival home in the Bronx is one of the two oldest villas in the historic Park-Riverdale neighborhood, and it can now be yours for $6,995,000. It was built in 1858 as a summer residence for Percy R. Pyne, president of the National City Bank of New York, and its architecture was inspired by the designs and writings of Andrew Jackson Downing and Calvert Vaux. In the early 20th century, the mansion was home to famed sculptor Elie Nadelman. Designated a NYC landmark in 2010, the home today offers stunning landscaping and three floors of living space including eight bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, and a home gym.
