The James F. D. Lanier House
The James F. D. Lanier House is more than a testament to the Gilded Age. It is an exuberant celebration. The magnificent Beaux-Arts mansion at 123 East 35th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues in the historic Manhattan neighborhood of Murray Hill, presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a New York City landmark and a living work of art.
The James F. D. Lanier House stands 33 feet wide, 75 feet deep, and 66 feet tall, with 11,638 square feet of palatial living space across eight levels. One of the city's largest single-family homes, it is also among the grandest. The brick and limestone mansion was built between 1901 and 1903 for James and Harriet Lanier. The renowned architectural firm Hoppin & Koen designed this house. Another Hoppin & Koen's notable work is the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York. The James F. D.
