Currently home to Marymount School of New York, this grand–even by Upper East Side standards–12,300-square-foot property at 2 East 82nd Street, asking $32 million, could give new meaning to the term “private school.” Originally built as a residence around 1898 by architect Alexander McMillan Welch of Welch, Smith & Provot, the home’s first owners were Mr. Albert Gould Jennings, owner of a Brooklyn lathe works, and his wife, who lived here until 1940. Behind its landmarked limestone-and-brick facade, many of the original turn-of-the-century details remain, and an elevator services all floors.

Shortly after purchasing a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in the New York suburb of Rye, designer Marc Jacobs has put his West Village townhouse on the market for $15,996,000, as the Wall Street Journal first reported. Jacobs is looking to downsize in Manhattan as he prepares to split his time between New York City and Rye. The three-bedroom townhouse at 68 Bethune Street is part of the Superior Ink condominium project designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects in the late 2000s. Property records show that Jacobs bought the residence for $10.495 million in 2009.

One of the city’s last remaining carriage houses at 163 East 70th Street has hit the market seeking $18,950,000, as Mansion Global first reported. Designed by CPH Gilbert in 1902 for banker, philanthropist, and art collector Jules Bache, it was built at a grander scale than typical carriage houses to accommodate a ground floor carriage-wash, a horse ramp, and double-height stalls for a dozen horses. In 1944, John D. Rockefeller Jr.—who lived just two houses down at 740 Park Avenue—purchased the house and had his architect Grosvenor Atterbury convert it into his family’s private automobile garage and chauffeur’s quarters. The 25-foot wide property spans over 7,500 square feet across four floors with an additional 2,500 square-foot cellar and a 12-foot private garage.

This one-bedroom top-floor loft at 12 East 14th Street at Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village near Union Square has plenty merits for loft lovers. But the best bonus might be the co-op’s private 1,000-square-foot landing strip-sized roof terrace.

448 West 37th Street, The Glass Farmhouse, Midtown West

Steps away from Hudson Yards, this corner loft at 448 West 37th Street just hit the market for $1,750,000. The Midtown West building is also known as the Glass Farmhouse—a former school building that was converted to condos in 1982—and this sun-drenched unit definitely lives up to that name. Ten 12-foot windows wrap around the 1,500 square-foot open layout, which promises plenty of opportunities for customization. The unit is currently configured as a studio with a sleeping alcove above the bathroom, but the listing shows alternate plans for those who may want to build out walls and transform it into a one or two bedroom.
