Built circa 1837 for dry goods merchant Andrew Quackenbush, the original brick and stone row house was conceived in the Greek Revival style accented by Italianate modifications. A full reconfiguration and gut renovation by MADE Architects which includes full electrical and plumbing updates, was fully completed within the last 5 years. This stunning home, has been completely restored while maintaining the authentic details that make this landmarked home in the Greenwich Village South Historic District, so special.
