The famous house of "The Royal Tenenbaums," directed by Wes Anderson, is available for the first time.
While the mansion has become famous thanks to the movie, it has always been an important house in New York City history. Developed by Jacob D. Butler and designed by Adolph Hoak, it was home of U.S. attorney Charles H. Tuttle, which ran to Governors against Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Several illustrious New York personalities, such as Fiorello LaGuardia and James Russel Parson, were regular guests.
The 100 feet wide Flemish Revival mansion spans 6000 square feet and comes with six (6) bedrooms, fourth and half (4.5) bathrooms, a formal living room, formal dining room, butler kitchen, family room, chef's kitchen, and garden. The first three floors are also served by a convenient elevator.
Unlike the average townhouse, the entrance is on the side of the home, which rises on a corner lot, and boasts three exposures ( N, E, W) with over 50 windows.
Other home features are original stained windows, extensive original woodwork throughout the house, and six gas-operated fireplaces.
A short subway trip from Midtown, and minutes from the GW Bridge, Hamilton Heights is home to City College and walking distance to Columbia University's Manhattanville annex. Riverside Park and Riverbank State Park run along the Hudson on the neighborhood's western edge. Countless dining and shopping options like the Grange, Fumo, Trufa, and ROKC are available on Amsterdam and Broadway.
