The Real Deal reports that the exact years the Stones lived here is unclear, though Stefan Peter, the current owner of the sweet pad, corroborated other news reports that the iconic band did indeed walk these halls.

Here's a view of one of the five bedrooms in the five-story spread. The home is currently laid out as five floor-thru apartments; however, the public listing clarifies that it could easily (we're not sure if easily is the right word) be converted back into a single-family residence.

Tons of original details such as ornate plaster medallions and crown moldings run throughout the home. We gotta admit that the Rolling Stones sure had impeccable taste.

Besides the Stones, the property has an interesting history. The original owner of the pad was a millionaire tobacco merchant. And, later in the 1930s, the home was owned by Sarg, the puppeteer responsible for creating the giant inflatable balloons featured in the first ever Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

Since the five-story house is set up as five separate apartments, the listing notes that the home can be delivered vacant or with an annual rent roll of $304,200. That rent money would certainly go a long way to paying the mortgage.
