180 East 73rd Street presents an extraordinary opportunity to own a rare, three story carriage house with a curb cut located on the landmarked block of East 73rd Street between Lexington and Third Avenues. This block, which has been noted by the New York Times as “one of the most distinctive in New York”, is replete with low rise carriage houses that were originally used by the most wealthy residents of the Upper East Side.
180 East 73rd Street was built in 1890 by the renowned architectural firm William Schickel & Co. The facade of this home boasts a Romanesque revival style limestone block base and brick upper stories. This home features two entrances, a side entrance and a center entry that is accompanied by a show window once used for commercial purposes. A curb cut remains in front of the property allowing a purchaser to potentially turn the center entry into a private garage. With 25’ of width and a deep build, the interior of this house is extremely spacious offering approx. 8,750 sq. ft. of space (including below grade) with room for additional square footage to be added.
The combination of the building’s grand ceiling heights, multiple outdoor spaces, full basement and available air rights would allow a purchaser to create an expansive, exceptional single family residence.
