A beautiful townhouse in the Greenwich Village Historic District has hit the market, asking $8 million. Back in 2017, we described it as the Platonic ideal of renovated historic Greenwich Village townhouses, and that’s still very much true.
The 2,400-square-foot house has three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a garden, a large living room, and four wood-burning fireplaces. Its master bedroom has a large dressing area and its cellar has a washer/dryer and a ton of storage space.
Originally built in 1845, the three-story house has been renovated over the years. It last listed in 2017, asking $7.8 million, and sold in 2018 for $7.575 million.
Its brick facade boasts large windows with planters while some interior details that contribute to the house’s charm include original wooden beams in its ceilings, a (movable) marble island in the kitchen, oak wood floors, antique marble mantle on one of its fireplaces, and floral wallpapers. The garden has built-in seating areas and brick floors.
It’s located at 154 West 11th Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, a nine-minute walk to Washington Square Park and near the 1, 2, and 3 trains at 14th Street.
Taxes are $2,152/month. Bettina Gochman Schriver of Douglas Elliman has the listing.
