Waverly Place Townhouse, Ex-Convent Asks $14.95M

New, 6 comments

New to the market in Greenwich Village, this huge, four-story townhouse at 154 Waverly Place is asking $14.95 million. The Greek Revival townhouse dates back to 1839 and is 22.5'-wide, with five stories and 5,900 square feet of interior space. From 1957 until the late 90s, it served as a convent associated with the nearby Church of St. Joseph, and it features five fireplaces, high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood flooring throughout, and 2,000 square feet of outdoor space.

The house is being sold by a family trust controlled by South African-born executive Nicholas R. H. Toms, who bought the property in 2000 for $4.2 million and undertook a full gut renovation. And while that $15 million ask might raise a few eyebrows, it's a bit less than the $20 million it was asking back in August when it was first listed. It also doesn't come close to 116 Waverly Place, a townhouse right down the street which hit the market a few days ago and is asking $34 million.
