Sarkozy yes, but his half-brother : Olivier Sarkozy, who recently re-did and listed (by Michael Bolla of Luxury Lofts & Homes) this chic loft-style carriage house of the UES for $11,950,000. Historically, the man who defined American chic (Richard Avedon) lived on this Upper East Side Townhouse for more than 30 years

With the help of architect Michele Busiri-Vici, put $2 million worth of renovations.

Mr. Bolla says Mr. Sarkozy plans to move to a larger space in downtown Manhattan with more wall space for his growing art collection.

The living area has glass walls overlooking a multi-level Zen garden.

If you feel the creative urge there’s still an old-school darkroom downstairs, plus an atrium with “ambient light” to display your masterpieces.
