Originally built in 1850, the legendary, Astoria, Queens mansion was purchased by the Steinway family in 1870, who also operated a piano factory on the premises. Although no longer owned by the piano-purveying family, the five-bedroom, 4.5-bath house retains their name. The home, which includes an English pub, billiards room, jacuzzi and sauna, is currently owned by Michael Halberian, whose family has lived here since 1925. For more information about the Steinway mansion (it's listed at $2,500,000 for simply the house or $4,500,000 for the property and an additional parcel of land), contact Kim Parshley of Halvatzis Realty at 917-620-5344 or Carolyn and Paul Zweben of Prudential Douglas Elliman at 212-769-6537.
