Built in 1826, this beautiful four-story 22 wide Federal brick townhouse is on a 25 wide lot and is part of the Greenwich Village Historic District. The house offers a myriad of options to discerning buyers: it may be occupied as in its current layout as an income-producing 2-unit rental building plus commercial/professional office on part of the ground level (live in one side, rent out the other units for income) or it presents an extraordinary opportunity to be transformed into a single family gem. With approval from the Landmark Commission and NYC DOB (please consult your architect), there is approximately 3,600 additional square feet of unused FAR on the property.
Walk up the majestic stoop and enter the parlor floor comprised of a magnificent living room with many classic details that give the home an elegant style such as oversized windows, original hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a wood burning fireplace. Saunter through to the adjoining dining room perfect for entertaining and then to the inviting rear kitchen with a grand skylight that floods the room with light and French doors that open out to a peaceful back garden. There is also a den/study with original built-ins and a bedroom on the parlor floor extension with a full bathroom.
Walk down the kitchen stairs to the lower level of the house which has a library, 1.5 bathrooms and a front office with access from the street. It also has plenty of storage and a washroom.
The second and third floors comprise the upper duplex. The second floor is equipped with two large bedrooms, one with an expansive terrace and an additional full bathroom and walk-in closet with a washer/dryer. The third floor has a full living room, dining area, kitchen and additional large street-facing bedroom and full bathroom.
Ideally located on a quintessential centrally located Greenwich Village street which has the added benefit of a parking garage on its block, bring your architect and imagination to truly realize all the possibilities this grand home offers.
