The home doesn’t show its age thanks to a top-to-bottom renovation

A circa 1832 Greenwich Village townhouse that got a top-to-bottom renovation a decade ago has reappeared on the market, less than three years after finding a buyer. The home at 112 Washington Place was a crumbling mess before that makeover, which turned the 185-year-old Federal-style townhouse into a spiffed-up, ultra-fancy mansion.

But even with all of its mod cons, it still took a while for the house to find a buyer. The home was first listed in 2008; got a series of price cuts; found a buyer who then promptly tried to flip it; and upped its asking price jumped a few times before finally finding a buyer—who snapped it up for $11 million—in 2014.

But people are fickle, and now the Federal-style townhouse is back on the market with a $12.5 million price tag. For that price, one very lucky (and wealthy) buyer would get just four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, some original ornamentation (fireplace mantels and … doorknobs, apparently), and a slew of extravagant features: an Instagram-worthy chef’s kitchen, a full-floor master suite, a roof terrace, and a lovely little back patio.
