A charming, 178-year-old red-brick townhouse is now on the market in the West Village for $10.995 million. The four-story townhouse was built for the son of a 19th century Greenwich Village developer, according to the brokerbabble.

Today, this four-story house has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Presently it’s set up to have to have two separate apartments, but it can easily be converted into a single-family home, according to the brokers on the property.

In addition, the brokers are also proposing that the townhouse be used as an office headquarters, if a residential future is not in the offing.

One of the most striking features of the property is the spacious and verdant garden behind the house. Other standout features here include the exposed brick, the lovely stoop with its wrought-iron railing, the wood-burning fireplaces, the wide plank floors, and the general airiness of the townhouse.
