Located on a quiet block of the Upper East Side, this six-floor, nine-bedroom townhouse previously owned by Mary Tiffany, daughter of Art Nouveau stained-glass master Louis Comfort Tiffany, is now on the market for $59.5 million. Scroll down for a look inside.

The 20-foot-wide townhouse was built in 1869.


Its facade was updated to limestone in 1919 by prominent Upper East Side architect George Blum under the direction of then-owner Emily Hesslein, heir to the Neuss, Hesslein & Co. textiles firm.

It has six floors of living space connected by a central stair with a brass-and-iron balustrade.


Bebe Winkler oversaw the interior design, which includes museum-quality custom lighting.

The second floor includes two salons for entertaining.


The southern one, shown here, features a wood-burning fireplace.

The kitchen adjacent to the formal dining room includes an eight-burner Viking range, multiple ovens, and dual Sub-Zero refrigerators and Bosch dishwashers.


Here's one of the nine bedrooms.


There are seven full bathrooms.


An elevator connects all six floors plus the basement, which includes a home office, storage rooms, a laundry room, and staff quarters.


For almost $60 million, it could be yours.
