An extraordinary find welcomes you to 563 West 139th Street in Hamilton Heights between Broadway and Hamilton Place. This property was once a horse and carriage house with stables. The original red brick facade with classic rectangular windows, original wood door entrance side door, and main door once entrance to the horse and carriage house currently is a glass entrance door to the travel and insurance business. The carriage house with a centrally located ornate arch still holds the hook fixture once used to pull up hay for horses. The house back in the day sat on the rear of what would have been the main grand residence or mansion facing Hamilton Place with a courtyard walkway between the horse carriage house and main grand residence. Today the courtyard is a parking lot and the mansion is a church. By the end of the Civil War spring 1865 horse carriages were only for the elite. This is an unique property and priced to sell for the right investor or private buyer wanting to own a piece of American history, Horse and Carriage Houses today in New York City are a rare find. This property has enormous potential, as a turnkey (currently a travel and insurance agency business and three apartment rentals) conversion to a modern single - family home with a private garage or building development with air rights included. The building next to the property is a six story building.
