Cushman & Wakefield has been retained on an exclusive basis to sell a landmarked carriage house at 180 East 73rd Street. The property is located between Lexington and Third Avenues on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.  The asking price is $18,000,000.

The three-story, 25-foot wide townhouse contains approximately 9,450 square feet and is one of the few carriage houses to survive into the 21st century.  It benefits from an elevator, additional air rights, ample ceiling heights, and the rare and sought after curb cut.  Designed by William Schickel & Co. and built in 1890 for Max Nathan, president of Nathan & Co., the home was designed in a transitional Romanesque Revival/neo-Renaissance style that was commonly found in the 19th century.  It was built in a form characteristic of contemporary carriage houses with a stone ground floor with blocks of limestone and brick upper stories.

The collection of carriage houses on this landmarked block is truly a unique find, offering a glimpse into the elegant lifestyle of old New York in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  As transportation shifted away from the horse-drawn carriages in the early to mid-20th century many of the existing carriage houses were demolished, with only a few surviving.

“Due to its large open layouts, this property presents an opportunity to convert a historic piece of New York to a spacious single-family residence on one of the most sought after blocks in Manhattan,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Guthrie Garvin, who is exclusively marketing this property.
