Live in a Landmarked 19th-Century UES Home for $18,500/Month

New, 7 comments

You might not expect to find a quaint Civil War-era house nestled amid the stately townhomes and brick apartment buildings of Carnegie Hill. But that's exactly what you'll see along 92nd Street between Lexington and Park Avenues, where a pair of wood-frame houses has stayed put for more than a century. The younger of the two, at 120 East 92nd Street, has just become available to rent for a staggering $18,500 per month—but it's incredibly well-preserved, with a charming front porch and a balcony overlooking the modestly-sized backyard. According to Forgotten NY, which explored the history of these houses last year, the three-story house was built in 1871 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, although the architect is unknown. And adjoining home at 122 East 92nd Street is even older—it was built in 1859. The home at 120 was designated a New York City Landmark in 1969, with the Landmarks Preservation Commission calling the home a "delightful surprise" on the otherwise nondescript street. [h/t 6sqft]
