A historic townhouse that was once home to Eleanor Roosevelt just hit the market in New York.

The former first lady and United Nations delegate lived on the bottom floors of the five-story building from 1959 until her death in 1962. She wrote her newspaper column in the home at a desk overlooking the street, and notable guests who visited the home reportedly include John F. Kennedy, Nikita Khrushchev, Prince Edward and Leonard Bernstein.

The 8,500-square-foot home includes six bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half-baths, according to the listing. The asking price is $16 million.

The limestone home was originally designed in 1898, but it has been fully modernized inside.

A grand entertaining space features 12-foot ceilings and a Louis XIV chandelier.
