The former West Village townhouse of broker Leslie J. Garfield is on the market for $22.9 million. The Real Deal first reported on the listing, which is located on West 4th Street, between West 12th Street and Bank Street.

Garfield listed the townhouse back in early 2015 for $9.25 million. At the time of the sale, Garfield had secured approved plans from the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to expand the house. Later that year, developer David Slaven scooped up the Greek Revival townhouse for $7.65 million.

Three years and a stunning gut renovation later, the townhouse is now back on the market. Measuring 5,300 square feet, the five-story townhouse has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. In addition to the indoor space, there’s 800 square feet of outdoor space which includes a handsomely landscaped bi-level garden, and a terrace that’s attached to the master bedroom on the third floor.

Some of the standout features of this home, which was built in 1836, include the massive atelier style windows that adorn the back of the house on the garden and parlor floors, the wood-burning fireplace in the living room, the helical staircase that runs through all floors of the house, the home theater and the 500-bottle wine room in the basement, and the full slab Bianco Dolomiti steam shower in the master bathroom.

In all, Slaven added 1,700 square feet of space to the house including the fifth floor, and expanded two existing floors. Do you think this townhouse will sell for the full ask?
