The Italianate-style townhouse at 27 Bank Street in the West Village dates as far back as 1856, when it was first constructed but you won’t find any signs that reveal its true age within the spruced up interiors. There is an evenness between historic details and modern charm on hand here and if you’re not quite ready to commit to buying, no worries; the home is being offered as a $35,000/month rental.

The pricey rental comes with six bedrooms and five bathrooms that are spread across five floors. The living room is where you’ll find a plethora of 19th-century details, including intricate plaster molding, 12-foot ceilings with a medallion, a decorative fireplace that centers the room, and oversized windows that bring in plenty of sunlight.

There are three kitchens throughout the entirety of the home, two dining rooms, and two sunrooms with one giving access to the landscaped garden. Each one of the bedrooms boasts an original marble fireplace (there are six in all) and you’ll find at least seven walk-in closets scattered throughout the home.

The top floor of the home features a massive skylight and gives access to the roof deck. It’s configured as a one-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, living room, family room, fireplace, and a full bathroom but can be utilized in a multitude of other ways.
