The Red House is a 1903 apartment building on Manhattan's Upper West Side in New York City. It was built on land owned by Canadian architect R. Thomas Short of the Beaux-Arts firm, Harde & Short. He and his firm designed and built the building in a free eclectic mix of French late Gothic[2] and English Renaissance motifs, using red brick and limestone with bold black-painted mullions in the fenestration. The center is recessed, behind a triple-arched screen.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 8, 1983.
