Faded lettering on the facade of 170 Eldridge Street reveals a bygone era, when this unique three-story, 25 foot wide by 80 foot deep red brick carriage house was owned by Sigmund Oppenheimer, the founder of a lucrative sausage casing business in the late 1800s. Perhaps the oldest remaining hand painted sign in Manhattan, preservation of such detail is a rarity, adding to the historical charm of this exceptional property, where the loading dock currently used as a garage was originally designed for horse drawn carriages. Illuminated by two skylights on the upper residential floor, with 15 foot high wood beamed ceilings, is a chef's kitchen appointed with Valcucine cabinetry, Subzero and Miele appliances, an open living and dining area, two wood-burning fireplaces, one bathroom, and a Moroccan tiled staircase leading to the landscaped roof terrace. Against the left wall on both residential floors, which feature radiant heating beneath Italian terracotta tiles, is a custom designed waterfall, showcasing original hardwood flooring removed from the 1996 gut renovation, surrounded by plants and flowers, as well as an exposed pulley system that once operated a flatbed elevator, creating a rustic and loft-like ambiance. There are four bedrooms, a decorative fireplace, a laundry room with a Miele washer/dryer, a home office, a den, 1. 5 bathrooms, and a lounge area on the lower residential floor large enough to accommodate a piano and a library with seating. What was once used as a loading dock may now accommodate three cars and connects to significant storage space, walk-in-closets, two home offices, and a powder room on the first floor. Uniquely configured as a mixed use single family duplex in a commercial district with exceptionally low annual real estate taxes, currently $10,931, opportunities exist to convert this carriage house into commercial use, offering the potential for both residential and investment income.
