A lovely Greenwich Village townhouse that spans five levels, with seven bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, has made its way to the market with a $10.75 million price tag. The home is nearly 200 years old, dating back to 1827, and has retained an abundance of its original details, while welcoming a few modern upgrades.

Ceilings as high as 12 feet, original plaster moldings, wood-burning fireplaces with marble mantles, built-in bookshelves, and floor-to-ceiling windows are a few of the flourishes that you’ll find within the home. On the parlor floor, there is an eat-in windowed kitchen with a modest design and access to a backyard deck, while the garden level gives way to three bedrooms, a washer/dryer, and a patio that leads to the landscaped private garden.

The third and fourth floors of the townhouse accommodate a total of five bedrooms, another kitchen, office space, and a wet bar. Each one of the bedrooms feature original hardwood floors, while three of the five bedrooms include wood-burning fireplaces. There is a terrace that is accessed through the third level, and the fourth floor has the potential of being converted into a master suite.

According to public records, the home hasn’t been on the market since 1998, when it was snatched up for a mere $352,000. If it manages to sell for it’s current asking price, that would be quite the profit.
