Herein lies the best of both worlds: traditional carriage-house architecture with the sort of modern interiors most commonly seen in steel-clad lofts downtown. As our sister site Curbed NY reports, the owners scored the Upper East Side digs for $6.3M in 2007 and promptly enlisted architect David Howell to meld it with the two neighboring apartments, making the 25-foot-wide house thrice as nice—so nice, of course, that it's "quite possibly the most architecturally stunning renovation of a 25-foot-wide Carriage House in Manhattan," according to the listing. That must explain the thrice-the-price asking figure of $19M.
