Located in the West Village, this stretch of Bank Street is a mix of turn-of-the-century apartment houses and simple Greek Revival townhouses. Erected in 1833 for the Reverend Joseph Carter, this 20-foot wide, three-story townhouse has recently undergone an extensive restoration. The brick front is constructed in Flemish bond, the fascia board of the roof cornice is original, and the Six over Six windows add to the attractive historic facade. The wrought iron hand railings of the stoop are original and the unusual openwork circular newel posts, set on stone bases, are surmounted by pineapples of painted brass.
The main floor of this residence is an expansive entertaining space including a large dining area with a working fireplace and an oversized chef’s kitchen with abundant storage. The open architectural staircase and glass panel curtain wall allows abundant light to flood the entire home. Down the stairs from the main floor is a charming English basement. Having its own private entrance, this complete bedroom/studio space includes an efficient Pullman kitchen, full bath, working fireplace and views of the bluestone patio.
The second floor features a loft-like, light-filled great room featuring high ceilings, five windows and a working fireplace against a brick accent wall. Upon arriving on the third floor, one enters the spacious master bedroom suite. With a spa-like, five-piece master bathroom, abundant closets, working fireplace and oversized dressing area, this is a luxurious private retreat. On the fourth floor, with sun-filled village exposure, one ventures out onto the rooftop. Recently replaced, this new roof can easily be landscaped to create additional private garden space.
Named after the Bank of New York, which established an eight lot bank in 1798, Bank Street is a mere six block street that runs between Greenwich Avenue and the Hudson River. Historic, picturesque, and intimate, this tree lined street is home to many colorful residents and memorable institutions while remaining close to fashionable boutiques, award winning restaurants and charming cafes. Residing on Bank Street offers the quintessential West Village living experience.

Available for the first time in over 40 years, this architecturally rich and rare house at 37 Harrison Street (originally 327 Washington Street) retains a remarkable abundance of its original detail. Currently configured with a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom layout, this 21-foot wide structure stretches over three sun-drenched floors, plus an English basement with exposed stone walls, front and rear entrances, and 13′ 6″ ceilings. Constructed in brick in a Flemish bond pattern, this corner house enjoys a craftsman-like attention to detail and scale and as one of the city’s finest extant examples of the Federal Style. It features six wood-burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings with exposed beams and original arched dormers. Its private garden adjoins an enclave of similarly designed houses connected by their historical pedigree and unlikely survival. Linked by a cobblestone street that once faced the river, the entire row was converted for warehouse use in the 19th century as the commercial activities of the Washington Market expanded northward, leaving no more than a handful of the original townhouses.
Built in 1828 and landmarked in 1969, the Wilson Hunt House is one of a group of nine Federal houses whose scale and profile exist nowhere else in New York City. Located on a site that was once the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, to whom it was granted in 1636 by Dutch Director General, Van Twiller, the area surrounding the house has evolved a bit over the last several centuries. Its farms and breweries long gone, the quaint neighborhood now offers access to some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants, and 21st century conveniences.
