The last Gilded Age mansion for sale in Manhattan is asking $50 million, the New York Post reported.

Once owned by Emily Thorn Vanderbilt Sloane, who was the granddaughter of railroad baron Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbilt, the six-story Beaux Arts building reflects the grandeur of Versailles throughout its 32 rooms, with eight bathrooms and two elevators.

There are currently six offers on the 1966-landmarked Upper East Side residence from individuals who are “all extremely high-net-worth individuals of different backgrounds,” says listing agent Tristan Harper of Douglas Elliman.

In the kitchen, there is a working stove from 1905, the year the residence was built on request by its first owner R. Livingston Beeckman, a stockbroker and late governor of Rhode Island.
