A rare opportunity on Manhattan's Upper West Side, this former home of Hollywood siren Mae West is a six bedroom, nine bathroom mansion built all the way back in 1896 by prominent Ecole Des Beaux Arts-trained New York architect Rudolphe Daus. First on the market in June, this six story, 14,000 square foot home is still undergoing extensive renovations, with plans to include a sauna, wine cellar, and other custom-designed delights. Carved oak details, solid brass fixtures and windows, stained glass, ornate plaster, and designer fittings compliment the murals by Francois Desportes that are featured throughout this spectacular home. If one ballroom isn't enough to suit your social calendar, consider this: zoning in this area of the city allows for 28,000 square feet of floor space—plenty of room to expand until your heart is content.
