If you've ever fantasized about living on a little homestead but are mired to New York City, this tiny Tribeca townhouse at 37 Harrison Street might present the perfect compromise. Built in 1828 on what was originally a street along the Hudson River, the Federal style house is one of nine remaining on land that once belonged to the farm of Annetje Jans. The landmarked 21-foot-wide three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has sixcount 'em, six!wood-burning fireplaces, exposed beams, original arched dormers, and a private garden that "adjoins an enclave of similarly designed houses connected by their historical pedigree and unlikely survival." How much does it cost to live out a homestead fantasy in downtown Manhattan? A mere $3.75 million.
