A stunning mansion known as the Ellen Biddle Shipman Residence has just hit the market for $48.75 million.The home, on E. 50th Street and Beekman Place, has unmatched views of the East River. The home is available through Paula Del Nunzio of Brown Harris Stevens.

Shipman was a prominent garden designer whose clientele included Robert T, Vanderbilt, J.S. Rockefeller, E.I. Du Pont, Mrs. M.T. Mellon, Theodore Roosevelt’s son Kermit, and Vincent Astor.

The home has six bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and five fireplaces.

Welcome to Beekman Place on the Upper East Side. The street is very secluded. You'll feel as if you are in the suburbs.

The kitchen is any chef's dream, with a six-burner LeCornu range, a centre island, and twin SubZeros.

The pine paneling in the front-library exudes old-school luxury.

The sweeping staircase is a gem, but if you're too tired to walk the five floors, use the elevator.

The home's Triple-pane windows provide extra padding to drown out that New York City noise.

The antique oak flooring in a chevron pattern boosts the home's character to a new level.

In the distance, you can see the Citigroup Building in Long Island City, Queens.

This New York apartment was gone in a flash.
