The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C17H23NO, contains two independent mol­ecules. In both mol­ecules, the hy­droxy group is involved in the formation of an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond. In the crystal, there are two crystallographically independent chains of the mol­ecules propagating along the c axis and formed by weak inter­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
