A huge single-family townhouse in Greenwich Village closed earlier this week for $8.1 million, according to CORE. The home at 23 Downing Street was purchased by developer Good Property LLC in 2011 for $3.3 million, who contracted Turett Collaborative Architects to
spearhead some serious gut renovations completely rebuild the house. Over a two-year period, the original house, which was marketed as "a real fixer upper," was torn down and the new five-floor, 3,700-square-foot home was erected in its place. It has 900 square feet of exterior space, including a private garden and rooftop terrace, plus salvaged wide plank oak flooring and a bunch of other nice details. It was first listed last June for $9.95 million, and the price was dropped to $8.995 million in September.
UPDATE: This story previously stated that the home was the product of a gut renovation, but it is actually an entirely new building. Additionally, this story state the house was on the market for two years, but it was only on the market for nine months. The design and construction period took two years. Curbed regrets the errors.
