Sage House was built in 1913 for the Russell Sage Foundation, a social welfare nonprofit that was an early advocate of social work and urban planning. Renowned architect Grosvenor Atterbury designed the building in the style of a Florentine Renaissance palazzo and included vaulted ceilings with a rough-cut red sandstone facade with carved decorative shields. It was converted to residential use in 1975, and residents have access to a 24-hour doorman, live-in resident manager, laundry room, bike room, and storage. Friendly co-op board, sublets, pied-a-terres, gift of funds, and pets allowed. The building also allows up to 80% financing and has a liberal subletting policy available after 1 year of ownership with board approval.
