The centenarian houses of the Upper East don’t come on the market all that often, but last week, we got two: 2014 Garden Street, built in 1895, and 16 E. Pedregosa Street, built in 1918. They have similarities and differences….
Bathrooms: Three and a half.
Size/Acreage: 3,866 square feet / .32 acre.
Price: $3.2 million.
Last sold: In November 2017 for $2.475 million.
Listing agent: Marcy Bazzani of Village Properties.
First up is 2014 Garden, a.k.a. “Crocker Row #2, built in 1895 for the Crocker Family, founder of Crocker Bank (currently Wells Fargo),” according to the listing. (Crocker Row #5, down at 2050 Garden, has been on the market for a year and a half.) It has some of the quirks and details you’d hope for in an old house, including multi-paned windows, a butler’s pantry, and a lovely sunroom. Less expected is the meditation room….
A few blocks away is 16 E. Pedregosa Street. Again, the old-house charm is evident throughout, extending to the curved brick driveway and side yard. Two possible explanations for the $500,000 price difference: While 16 E. Pedregosa and 2014 Garden are on similar-size lots, the house on Pedregosa is about a thousand square feet smaller; moreover, it only has two bathrooms, which either limits the number of residents or means you have a project ahead of you. In the property’s favor, however, is its side-street location.
Size/Acreage: 2,918 square feet / .28 acres.
Price: $2.7 million.
Last sold: In October 2008 for $2.5 million.

Both would undoubtedly be fun to look at, so why not make it a double feature? Contact Marcy Bazzani of Village Properties or Chris Palme of Coldwell Banker for a showing. And be sure to tell them Siteline sent you.
