Historic NYC brownstone that was once home to Gloria Vanderbilt lists for $11.995M

Gloria Vanderbilt, the great-great-great-granddaughter of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt, was a stand-out presence among New York’s elite.

Nearly three years after she passed away, we’re still getting glimpses into the heiress’ epic life.

Her son, CNN journalist Anderson Cooper, recently shared that he found love letters between the socialite and legendary crooner Frank Sinatra

Now, another tie to her glamorous past is holding headlines: her Upper East Side brownstone hit the market for  $11.995 million.

Off-White Arrow

Gloria Vanderbilt lived in the ivy-covered brownstone back in the 1980s and ’90s.

She was drawn to the residence by the first floor greenhouse that became her painting studio.

Since then, the property has been owned by photographer Priscilla Rattazzi, who bought the home from Vanderbilt in 1995.

The 19-foot wide brownstone has approximately 6,400 square feet of elegantly appointed living space.

It has 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and distinct features like a greenhouse covering the garden,

a solarium on the fourth floor, 4 wood burning fireplaces, an elevator, and a basement complete with laundry and storage.

Spanning five floors, 67 East 91st Street features an imposing staircase that transitions between the home’s many stories.

The 1899-built city home is currently listed for $11,995,000.
