Brick House From the 1840s Is Quintessentially West Village

New, 16 comments

Everybody loves historic homes, and New York has some of the best. This Federal-style house dates back to the 1840s, and it shows in the details like exposed brick, crown moldings, and ornate mantels on wood-burning fireplaces. Oddly enough, the listing contains no floorplan, but the brokerbabble makes it out to be a three-bed, two-bath. An the photos sure are nice. There's a quaint back garden with climbing vines. The house has central A/C, which confirms that it has been renovated at least once in the last 170 years. That's a good thing, considering it wishes to command a handsome asking price of $8,950,000.

Its current owner, Jerome Kipper, is perhaps the Jerome Kipper of ballet-dancing fame who was in 1993's The Nutcracker. Kipper paid $2.95 million for the house in 2003.
