Most New Yorkers have had to get creative with their remote work situations, but if you’re on the #WFH train for the long haul, you may need to consider an upgrade. And if you’ve got $2,750,000 to shell out, consider this incredible Fort Greene carriage house. Built in 1925, the super unique residence was fully renovated in 2014 and now includes a conference room, three offices, and even a recording studio. It’s not technically set up as a private home, but with a full kitchen, rear terrace, and tons of space, it easily could be.

New York City has several hidden mews sprinkled across its mostly gridded landscape, including MacDougal Alley in Greenwich Village. Located just north of Washington Square Park, the gated half-block cul-de-sac was constructed as a stretch of carriage houses to serve the townhouses that lined ritzy Washington Square North. Today, these charming carriage houses remain, and many of them have been transformed into private residences, like this one at number 6 Macdougal Alley. For the first time in 25 years, the nearly 1,800-square-foot red brick home is up for rent, asking $10,000 a month.

Carriage houses are often unique to begin with, possessed of private garages in former carriage quarters. This gem at 313 West 20th Street in Chelsea has all of the carriage house perks (including the garage and tons of curb appeal), but at 25 feet wide, with a “secret” garden, two terraces, and a separate top-floor two-bedroom apartment, no living space is sacrificed. Asking $15.8 million, this turn-of-the-20th-century home has four stories, historic details, and every modern comfort including new double-pane windows and central air.

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.
