Historic East Village Townhouse Listed for $6.7 Million

New, 12 comments

An 1861 East Village townhouse, built by architect James Renwick, Jr. (who also designed St. Patrick's Cathedral and Washington DC's Smithsonian Castle) has appeared on the market for $6.7 million. The five-story house sits within the borders of the St. Mark's Historic District, and features one of the Anglo-Italianate brick facades that the district is know for. Inside, there's a glass-enclosed stairwell, a wood-burning fireplace on the parlor floor, a couple indoor balconies, and, well, not much else. (It has, as the listing puts it, a "modernist sensibility.") According to a couple of Certificates of Occupancy from the late 1960s, the house at one point doubled as an art gallery, which, looking at the pictures, does make sense.
