Well-heeled history buffs will want to flex with this landmarked carriage house in Chelsea, which hit the market today for $10.5 million.

The residence, at 130-132 W. 18th St, was built as stables in 1864, when Chelsea was mostly farmland.

For several decades, it was owned by Major Theodore K. Gibbs, who was known as the man who ordered the Civil War’s last cannon shot. Its current owner is Jane Doyle, the daughter of playwright Arthur Miller.

The charming red brick structure, built in a Rundbogenstil design, echoes the many carriage homes on the block that were once used as private stables by the city’s elite.

The 43-feet-wide, two-story home is a generous 7,912 square feet, it features two bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The carriage house was originally two separate homes, but they were bought by the Metropolis Security Company in 1906, which broke down the walls and joined them — leaving minimal columns, 12-foot ceilings, skylights and two curb cuts.
