The onetime home of noted civil rights activist and lawyer, William Kunstler, is now on the market for $10 million. Located on one of the West Village’s most charming streets, Gay Street, the four-story townhouse dates back to 1845, and recently underwent a renovation, according to the brokerbabble.

Spanning 2,700 square feet, the house comes with five bedrooms, and three bathrooms, and there’s potential to convert the lower level of the house into an additional bedroom (aside from the existing one).

Some of the highlights of the townhouse include the exposed brick, the decorative fireplaces, high ceilings, and a private landscaped garden. Another plus is the kitchen, which features floor-to-ceiling windows, comes fitted with Viking appliances, and overlooks the home’s private garden.

The light-filled, 19-foot-wide home also comes with central air-conditioning, and a newly installed washer and dryer unit, which is always a plus. Over the past decade or so the townhouse has been offered up as a rental, but this the first time the townhouse is up for sale in decades. It’s also being offered as a $25,000/month rental along with the sales listing.
