Historic West Village Townhouse Seeks $19.6M After Total Revamp

New, 7 comments

The home has been gutted and totally renovated, hence the huge jump in price

This 3,891 square-foot townhouse last sold for $7.6 million in 2010, but six years later, it’s back on the market for nearly three times the price, at $19.6 million. The massive (and massively gorgeous) home, located on lovely West 12th Street, was originally constructed in 1910 and received landmark status in 1969 as part of the Greenwich Village Historic District.

Since then, the place was completely gutted, as the brokerbable notes, "to the core," then jam-packed with every possible stylish amenity. Six bedrooms are spread across five floors, including a lush penthouse terrace outfitted with a privacy hedge and a hot tub. The third floor is entirely devoted to the master suite, featuring its own balcony, a wood-burning fireplace, walk through closets, and a modern bathroom that’s not without its quirky vintage touches, like a freestanding clawfoot tub.

On the parlor floor there’s yet another another terrace, and this particular outdoor space flaunts an effortless European charm that will confuse the owner and any visitors as to where, exactly, the hell they are—trailing vines and gorgeous stone steps call to mind an Italian villa more so than a Manhattan patio. Below, there’s a light-filled garden floor and basement with, of course, a full laundry room and wine storage. Other extras include a massive kitchen outfitted with high-end appliances, radiant heated floors, central AC, and something the listing calls "sophisticated AV systems," which may be a concern only if you caught the second season premiere of Mr. Robot.
