Quintessential Village charm meets modern refinement in this gorgeous, freshly updated reimagined gem at prized 112 West 13th Street. The handsome, generously-sized classic Greek Revival townhouse, once home to 'Charlotte's Web' and 'Stuart Little' author E.B. White, exudes elegance with its impeccably-redesigned living quarters and invites comfort with multiple outdoor spaces to enjoy. A front yard, rear garden, several terraces, and landscaped roof deck suit every need and mood, and afford the ultimate bliss for relaxing and entertaining.
Abundant light pours through this historic home's expansive 4,256 sq. ft. interiors (not counting the cellar), as do airy ceilings, and striking architectural details such as beautiful millwork and moldings, original pocket doors, wood-burning fireplaces with stunning carved stone mantles, and lovely new light wood floors. Optimizing space, sunlight and dramatic effect is a unique and fabulous 3-story bay set at the rear of the 20'-wide residence.
The gracious parlor level exudes sophistication while offering a warm, inviting ambience. Grandly-proportioned rooms offer an easy flow and perfect backdrop for hosting, from the spacious living room to the newly redone chef's kitchen, and formal dining room overlooking garden greenery. Step out to the deck for morning coffee, reading the paper, evening cocktails, and alfresco dining. Below awaits a south-facing backyard for gardening, barbecuing, and relaxing outdoors.
On the garden level, a second living area with patio access extends the comfort, complete with a wet bar and powder room nearby. A peaceful bedroom also rests here, with its own private entrance. Main sleeping quarters occupy 2 upper floors featuring 3 large bedroom suites with ample closets and private baths. One has a private terrace facing the rear yard; another has a fireplace and huge walk-in closet. The piece de resistance is on the top floor, bathed in light from atrium windows and glass doors to 2 amazing terraces. This oasis with a wet bar and powder room makes an ideal office, sitting space, playroom, etc. And then there's the crown jewel, the 19'x19' roof deck for lounging and gazing at the city sights.
Located on a coveted tree-lined Village block, 112 West 13th Street is a rare offering, built in 1844 and distinguished by a detailed cornice and carved stone window lintel. The prime address in the Greenwich Village Historic District lies in the heart of Manhattan's best attractions, minutes from world-class dining, boutiques, Washington Square Park, Union Square Park, the High Line, B/D/F/M, L, 1/2/3, A/C/E and PATH trains.
