If you're familiar with New York City real estate, you know it's pretty rare to find a single-family mansion that's still brimming with most of its original details. That's what makes the Carroll Mansion, located at 86 Riverside Drive in Manhattan, so special.

Built in 1898 by famed architect Clarence True, the five-story Elizabethan Renaissance Revival mansion is still intact and spans 8,434 square feet. The light-filled property is brimming with original architectural details, ranging from limestone accents and coffered ceilings to ornate mantels. It offers both northern and western light, along with impressive Riverside Park views.

"It is an extraordinary opportunity for someone to restore a magnificent home in an amazing location directly across from Riverside Park," says real estate broker Pamela D’Arc, a member of Stribling and Associates' Chairman’s Circle, who shares the listing with her colleague Laurence Asseraf.
