There is also a finished basement with a gym, lots of storage and a full staircase with sky lights leading to a possible roof garden.
The master bedroom has a large dressing closet and spacious en-suite bathroom with separate tub and shower. Completing this floor, is a library with custom paneling, built-ins and a gas fireplace.
The house was once featured in Architectural Digest which highlighted its grand scale and timeless original details.
The limestone mansion was built in 1896 by the famed architect Clarence True. Designer Victoria Hagan and architect Oliver Cope recently renovated the property, which is one of seven of a row of limestone houses that line the street.
The listing by Douglas Elliman describes it as follows:
“Rarely has a magnificent single family home, offering such gracious elegance and breathtaking proportions, come to market. Perfect for entertaining, the home’s brilliant floor plan offers six or seven bedrooms, a gorgeous formal dining room with soaring ceilings and service kitchen, a spectacular living room with floor to ceiling bay windows, wet bar, a welcoming sitting room with handsome built-ins and wood burning fireplace and a wonderful chef’s kitchen with a cozy breakfast room that opens on to a lovely landscaped garden.”
Doctoroff had originally sought as much as $13 million for the property. He was the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York under Mayor Bloomberg from 2001 to 2008. That year he joined Bloomberg Companies as its President and he became the CEO in 2011.
