Owned by the same family for generations and available for sale for the first time in 75 years, this four-story, 21' wide townhouse is one of the grand dames of the West Village. Built in 1852, it sits in the middle of a magnificent row of Italianate houses on on one of the few remaining West Village cobblestone streets.
The parlor floor, with 11'6'' ceiling , boasts exceptionally preserved 19th Century ornate moldings, including a unique arch midway. There are 9 fireplaces, 6 of which have finely carved white marble mantles. All floors have high ceilings and original crown moldings. To complement this twenty-room home is an enormous backyard, surrounded by lush gardens, maximizing the southern light in a private oasis. The lot is 21 x 98, built 4 stories plus a standing height cellar, totaling over 5,000 square feet, with an almost 400 square foot roof deck. The front yard of this house is surrounded by a rare fleur de lis iron gated iron fence.
No detail was overlooked; they don't build homes like this anymore.
