On the hilltop corner of 75th Street and Riverside Drive is a rare single-family manor house with three sides of exterior exposure and sweeping river and palisades views. The palatial Beaux-Arts mansion was designed by noted New York architect Charles P. Gilbert for Herbert Horace Vail, chairman of the American Book Company. Completed in 1905, it had a meticulous renovation, which was completed in early 2022. A home of this scale, detail, and size is rarely available in NYC. Now it is for sale for $65 million.

A rare corner lot and hilltop location makes for great views.

Rooms feature soaring 12 to 14-foot high ceilings. When constructed, materials were sourced worldwide for woodwork to complete the luxurious decor of the house. The principal rooms are retrofitted with exotic woods. The baths are onyx slab, marble and tile, and all showers are steam. There is a mahogany theater that seats 20 with a woodburning fireplace, a unique Mueller pottery fireplace and a library wrapped in chestnut wood. The home includes three kitchens, six fireplaces and an elevator to all seven floors. The flooring is centuries old and imported from Parisian palaces.
