West Village Townhouse: Coming Soon!
Located in the Greenwich Village Historic District, 41 Barrow Street is a late Federal-style rowhouse, built in 1828 by Charles Oakley, a well-to-do attorney, real estate developer and landlord who commissioned seven homes on the block from 1826-1828.
In the original 1969 landmarks designation report, 41 Barrow Street is described as a "two and one-half storied wood building with [a] brick front in Flemish bond, steeply pitched roof and dormer window". In the 20th century, a greenhouse conservatory was added to extend both the house's English basement and parlor floor.
Layout & Features
The primary entrance to this charming 21 footer is via a stoop at the parlor level. The living room and a greenhouse conservatory space are located on this floor, where the house's rear patio is also accessed.
In the English basement, the chef's kitchen, dining area and a secondary bedroom and bathroom are found. This floor can be separately accessed from a secondary entrance under the building's stoop.
Setback from the parlor floor, the house's second floor features what has traditionally been used as the master bedroom and bathroom, where the washer/dryer is housed. On the third floor, a lofty skylit third bedroom and bathroom is located.
Additional features of 41 Barrow Street include original wide plank pine floors, as well as a working fireplace in the living room and two decorative fireplaces; two of the house's wood mantels are circa 1828. Some modern additions to the space include central air conditioning, and a Nest Thermostat system.
The West Village is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the country. Established before the Manhattan grid was firmly rooted, the West Village has the ambling charm of a European city with an artistic, political and architectural history that is uniquely and decidedly American. Today this area is prized for its numerous beloved restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops--as well as its proximity to all things downtown, including the West Side bike and running paths, Washington Square Park and Lower Fifth Avenue.
