Iconic “Urban Retreat” in NY

In the 1960s, architect Paul Rudolph transformed this 19th-century carriage house located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York city, USA, into a four story modern home. According to Architectural Digest, the residence, “commissioned by a real-estate lawyer, was later sold to fashion designer Halston, who used the living room to host bacchanals for his famous friends. Its most recent owner, the late German-born industrialist and photographer Gunter Sachs, replaced the wall-to-wall carpeting with white-oak floors and added balustrades on the precarious mezzanine and catwalk. The Rudolph scheme otherwise remains intact.” This iconic property is now back on the market. The asking price is $38.5 million, above the sale prices on more traditional houses nearby.

“We look at it as a piece of art,” said Noble Black, a broker at Corcoran Group, who is listing the house along with Bonnie Pfeiffer Evans and Carmen Marques Perez. “There are no comps for a house like this.”
