Iconic “Urban Retreat” in New York by Paul Rudolph
In the 1960s, architect 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.
