Interior of 3 East 89th Street

Financial needs placed the palatial Upper East Side mansions occupied by the National Academy Museum on the market last spring at $120 million.

A buyer was not found and now Corcoran is marketing the properties differently, to be sold together for $78.5 million or as separate listings, reports Curbed.

Two interconnecting townhouses at 1083 Fifth Avenue and 3 East 89th Street are each listed at $29.5 million, and the 65-foot-wide school building at 5-7 East 89th Street is $19.95 million.

Famed Gilded Age architect Ogden Codman Jr. designed 3 East 89th Street and later remodeled the Beaux-Arts style 1083 Fifth Avenue in 1913, connecting the two buildings with a large rotunda featuring a magnificent curved marble staircase that served as a backdrop for many arts events.

Arts lover Archer Milton Huntington donated the properties to the National Academy in 1940.
