New York-based antique map, book, and print specialist W. Graham Arader has listed his 1850s Italianate Victorian residence in Nyack, New York, one of several of his historic residences. “I own the seventh-oldest house in San Francisco,” he told Bloomberg, “I own the only pristine beaux-arts mansion on Madison Avenue, and I own George Washington’s home in Virginia.”

Overlooking the Hudson, the restored 6,000 square foot house, once owned by actress Helen Hayes and later by Rosie O'Donnell, has hosted many notable guests through the years such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe, Ronald Reagan, John Steinbeck, Orson Welles, Frank Sinatra and Madonna.

Artist Edward Hopper, also from Nyack, made a painting of the home for the Hayes family. The work is now in the Smith College collection.

The six bedroom manse has a pool, rose garden, and lush grounds of 1.2 acres that Arader put $2 million into landscaping. Arader paid $6 million for the estate in 2005, but, in an effort to downsize, he is offering it for $4.75 million through Sotheby's International Realty.

“The chandeliers come with it and, if someone asks me nicely, a lot of the furniture will, too,” says Arader.
