Description:

The rare offering of this 1850 Greek Revival home provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to own one of only 22 homes that create the landmarked and coveted MacDougal-Sullivan Gardens. Home to some of the city’s most vibrant and interesting luminaries, the homes all share a private and secret park. 22.5' wide with approx. 5,075 interior square footage including the basement, this home has had only two owners in the last 100 years.

The MacDougal- Sullivan houses were built with the specific intent of attracting artists and musicians as a means to improving the quality and character of the neighborhood. 188 Sullivan was purchased in 1923 by Edgard Varese, considered one of the true pioneers in contemporary music. From 1923 to 1965, 188 Sullivan Street served as a salon and meeting place for many famous artists and musicians from both Europe and the US - including artists like Marcel Duchamp, jazz musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, and his close friend, the sculptor, Alexander Calder. The property’s subsequent and most recent owner was Varese’s protégé, Chou Wen-chung, one of the most celebrated Asian-American composers of the twentieth century who owned the home for over 50 years.

The shared gardens behind the homes are magical and sublime. Lined with mature trees and manicured flower beds, the concept of a private garden in Greenwich Village combined with the original and important architectural elements of the houses themselves lead the Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the houses and their gardens as a Historic District.

The house, potentially a 5 bedroom with possible potential for expansion is in need of a full renovation so bring your architect and prepare to truly make this home your own.
