The Richter family lived in the house until 1924. Though it has seen renovation, the building has always remained a single-family home. It is now for sale, offered by Brian K. Lewis of Compass Realty for $17,500,000.

While Ehrich left his job at Richter's in 1891 to pursue a life in magic, he maintained his dues in the tie cutter union well into adulthood. Did he maintain a relationship with the Richters as well? Could he have visited this house? Tack on an extra mil just in case.
