Town House

Built in 1900

This grand 21-foot wide townhouse is located on a prime Gold Coast block and captures the true spirit and essence of historic Greenwich Village. Built in 1854 in the Anglo-Italianate style and retaining much of its original detail, this 5-story single-family townhouse with elevator offers over 5,000SF of interior space with high ceilings, beautifully proportioned rooms, 5 wood-burning fireplaces, central air-conditioning, a private roof terrace and a deep south garden with a magical treehouse that is truly inspiring. Formerly home to musician David Byrne and currently owned by a renowned artist, this unique property exudes tremendous creative energy and offers a true haven from the hustle and bustle of city life.

English Basement:
Enter under the stoop to a large hallway with abundant storage, a mechanical room, and a large separate studio/guest suite with charming beamed ceilings, kitchen, full bathroom, washer-dryer and a wall of French doors opening on to a large bluestone patio.

Garden Floor:
A short stoop with curved iron railings and double doors lead to a front reception room and a large south-facing artist studio with an impressive casement window overlooking the garden. A powder room and kitchenette add convenience, while a casement door leads to a deep landscaped south garden with bluestone sitting area and an enchanted round cedar treehouse suspended 10-feet off the ground and built into a towering 90-foot London Plane tree. Think meditation room or children's playhouse!

Parlor Floor:
An elegant curved staircase with statue niches and the original mahogany bannister lead up to the magnificent Parlor floor with 14-foot ceilings, intricate plaster crown moldings and 2 working fireplaces with ornate marble mantels. The front parlor is currently a Living/Dining room with original marble fireplace, built-in bookcases and lovely French doors that open onto wrought iron planting balconies overlooking bucolic 12th Street. There is a large open kitchen with separate pantry, a powder room, and a south-facing media room with custom bookshelves, a marble fireplace and tranquil garden views from two enormous double sash windows. A door opens to a wrought iron staircase wrapped in climbing wisteria that leads down to the garden.

Third Floor:
Continue up the stairs to find two generously sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The sunny primary bedroom suite is a serene sanctuary with a marble fireplace, abundant closets and a charming en-suite bathroom with open shower and deep footed tub. The second bedroom is bathed in light from two oversized French windows and features a large walk in closet and a separate bathroom with footed tub.

Fourth Floor:
The fourth floor consists of a sky-lit lounge area with kitchenette, full bathroom, washer dryer, a sunny south facing bedroom with marble fireplace, and a fabulous Parisian-style atelier with 18' ceilings, a huge skylight, a large working fireplace and charming treetop views from double sash windows. A wide staircase leads to the rooftop terrace.

Roof:
A staircase with bulkhead door leads to a large cedar roof deck with built-in seating and open views of verdant treetops and the surrounding historic district. There is water and electric on this level and a separate fenced in mechanical area that houses the central air conditioning units.
