As far as Upper East Side townhouses go, 105 East 73rd makes all the right moves: landmarked block off Park Avenue, built in 1910, triple exposures, elevator, fireplaces plural, English Tudor meets American House Beautiful decor. Ah yes, and a licensed operating room! Which makes a little more sense once you realize the seller, Dr. Howard Bellin, is a stay-at-home plastic surgeon.
The five-story home—with "English basement"—was originally listed with Garfield for $21 million, then picked up by Stribling and pricechopped to the current ask of $19.9 million. (Plus whatever it will cost for the conversion back to a single-family mansion.) Showings start September 12, so press your best suit and empty your piggy bank.
