The Chapel Hill Mansion in Riverdale, N.Y. has hit the market for $13.588 million.The home, built in 1928, has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

The head of the New York Theological Society commissioned the house for the preparation of the “second coming of Jesus Christ,” according to The Real Deal

The home would house “the Christian saviour once he returned to earth to judge the living and the dead,” listing broker Sean McPeak of Prudential Douglas Elliman, told The Real Deal.

The 15,000-square-foot house sits on 2.3 acres of land.

Manhattan College previously owned the property, and had planned to use it as dormitories or a seminary, but is now in the hands of a private owner who is an attorney, The Real Deal reported. 

Welcome to West 253rd Street.

The home features marble floors imported from the Vatican and chandeliers from the Plaza Hotel.

In the foyer and bar area, gold and silver leaf adorn the ceilings.

The ceiling in the foyer is reminiscent of a chapel.

The prospective buyer must put at least 10 per cent down.

The kitchen is fit for a king.

The dining room boasts an original hand-carved marble fireplace.

The home has stained glass windows, just like a church.

The lime green crown moldings are funky.

The master bedroom has a hand-carved fireplace too.

The master bathroom reminds us of a corner office.

The hallways sparkle from the Plaza's chandeliers.

The windows will be a huge selling point.

The greenhouse has a hot tub, gym, and sauna.

The porch has heat lamps, so you can sit outside into the fall.
