The former Upper East Side carriage house that just hit the market asking $14.5 million has at least three neat things going for it. 1) 165 East 73rd Street was originally built in 1903 as a stable for Henry Harper Benedict, who was basically a typewriter pioneer. It's been in the same family since then. 2) It has a garage. Which fits five cars. 3) There is a room wholly dedicated to the seller's father's collection of 5,000 antique soldiers (pictured), which could come with the house if the buyer is also passionate hobbyist. Just think, those custom glass-and-wood vitrines could house your collection of
Star Wars memorabilia Faberge eggs. The six-bedroom, five-bathroom house, which is Beaux-Arts style on a limestone base, is only two stories high (albeit with a finished basement), but it's 25 feet wide and very deep. There's also a petite patio and three skylights. Have a look.
