CIRCA 1838 6500SQFT TOWNHOUSE
An unrivaled Gold Coast 25 foot wide Greek Revival Townhouse built circa 1838 sits just off lower Fifth Avenue and north of the Arch at Washington Square. Special enough to have been published in "Private New York: Remarkable Residences" by Chippy Irvine! This home retains its genteel ambience; the timelessness of its historic era. In fact, you will find many of the original architectural details such as floor-to-ceiling windows, wood shutters, crown moldings, pillars, window entablatures and wood-burning fireplaces. Centrally located in Greenwich Village, this Townhouse offers a great opportunity to return it to its former single-family glory or as a turn-key investment property with five prime rental units. Either way, a superior investment. Private viewings by appointment.
Parlor Floor: Enter the foyer and find a quaint powder room with brass and marble finishes just off the dining room. Both front and back parlors have been fitted with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with rolling ladders from the Putnam Ladder Co. The living and dining rooms are generous and inviting--with 13ft high ceilings, original pillars and two wood-burning fireplaces. The windowed kitchen, located in the extended portion of the home, comes fully equipped with marble counters from the Manhattan Marble Co., custom wood cabinetry, a Miele oven range and hood from Gaggenau, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and light fixtures from Halo Halophane. Access the garden from both the kitchen and master bedroom (below).
Garden Level: This level has a private entrance with a mudroom, tons of built-in closets and a washer and dryer.
