We dutifully salute Curbed NY for burning the wackiest carriage house conversion we've ever seen into our heads today. The East 38th Street George S. Bowdoin Stable, as it's known, has been sold five times since 1980, living such lives as a non-profit arts space and a special events space (at one point asking something in the range of $30K/night). Having once been described in the Times with the words "Miami Vice" and "James Bond," surely it will take a special sorta owner to wanna call it home. And a very rich one, at that: the carriage house of the future is asking $13.995M, quite a few price points up from its last sale, $5M in 2005.
