The Carnegie Hill section of the Upper East Side is synonymous with elegance, old money, exclusivity—and striking historic homes.

This one in particular is part of an even more exclusive set of structures: It’s one of only seven buildings in the Hardenbergh/Rhinelander Historic District, on the northwest corner of Lexington Avenue and East 89th Street. These homes were developed by the Rhinelander family (associated with Manhattan real estate in the late 19th century), and have had several noteworthy residents over time, including Andy Warhol.

Asking $5.75 million, the 3,072-square-foot, two-story home has a captivating brownstone facade with red brick and terra cotta. Inside, there are four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two partial bathrooms, and details like a wood-paneled foyer, five fireplaces, a turned oak staircase, and a Juliet balcony. It also has a landscaped roof deck and an enclosed patio.

Located at 1346 Lexington Avenue, the Northern Renaissance Revival-style house was built by the McCabe Brothers between 1888 and 1889 and designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s (LPC) designation report.

Glenn Minnick, Adrian Castillo, and Joy Kimmelman of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.
