163 East 70th Street | New York, NY 10021
This is the rarest of opportunities, to acquire one of the most beautiful and historic carriage houses remaining in all of New York, perfectly located in the low 70s, on one of the Upper East Side's most desirable tree-lined blocks. This spectacular, large house, with a private garage and curb-cut, is over 7,500SF above ground, plus an enormous full-height cellar of nearly 2,500SF, with zoned additional FAR of another 2,500+/- SF. Larger in scale and size than other carriage houses that have come to market in recent years, due to its coveted width of almost 26 feet, and its extraordinary depth - built full on the 100' lot on the ground floor and cellar, and to 90' on the upper 2 floors. The 12' tall garage can fit even the largest SUVs, and could be expanded for multiple vehicles.
Currently configured as a single family home with a ground floor medical office, with separate entrance, and delivered vacant, the ground floor presents buyers with incredible possibilities. Incorporate the office into the residence, rent as a separate medical office for an estimated $240k in annual rental income, keep as a private home office, expand the garage, use as private gallery space for an important art collection, create windowed staff suites, family recreation space, or any combination thereof.

It combines the elegance and charm of a 19th century townhouse with proportions only found in the very grandest downtown lofts or pre-war Park or Fifth Avenue apartments. ... more on SOTHEBYSHOMES.COM/OLRS0075738
