There’s a lot going on with this West Village townhouse, which just hit the market asking $8.995 million. For one, the brokerbabble claims that it’s on the market for the first time in 30 years—plus, it was built in 1842, making it something of a rare commodity in the neighborhood.
But it’s being marketed as something of a fixer-upper. While many original details remain (hardwood floors, working fireplaces, the original entryway with its lovely transom), the house does need some work. And then there’s this nugget within the listings description: "Subject to LPC approval (Landmarks Preservation Commission), the home's air rights increase the transformative options."
That apart, the master bedroom in this three-story house is located on the top floor, spans 400-square feet, and comes with a skylight. The floor below that has two bedrooms and the dining room, which overlooks the house’s charming and multi-tiered rear deck garden. The cellar is equipped with laundry and storage rooms that could be reconfigured for other uses, according to the brokerbabble. It’s a historic house with tons of potential.
