Home of Historic Antiques Shop Listed for $14M

NYR’s Richard Pino is marketing the Connoisseur Building at 36 W. 73rd St. on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. With a lengthy history as home to L’Antiquaire & the Connoisseur, an antique shop founded by America’s first female arts dealer, it’s listed for $13.8 million.

The building is currently configured as a two-story retail store and three floors of residential space. NYR says that while future owners could simply use the commercial component for their own business and reside in the upper floors, the rental income of the store alone would pay for the entire property’s upkeep.

The property will be delivered vacant to give its new owners the opportunity to make the building truly their own, says NYR. The possibilities for the property range from immediate move-in to value-adding upgrades or the construction of an additional floor or a roof deck.
