A charming Greenwich Village condo owned by singer and playwright Benjamin Scheuer—known for the critically acclaimed play The Lion—has just listed for $3.65 million, or $10,000/month. Folk singer Richie Havens, the first performer at Woodstock Festival in 1969, also once lived in the apartment, according to the brokers.

The 1,750-square-foot condo, which was recently gut renovated, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, Italian carved wood mantel, exposed brick, oak floors, and a wood-paneled library.

Built in 1890, the historic Romanesque-style building where the apartment is located was designed by architect G. A. Schellenger, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report. The building is pet-friendly and has four units in total.

The condo is located on the third floor of 106 Waverly Place between Sixth Avenue and Washington Square West in the Greenwich Village Historic District, right in front of Washington Square Park.

Meris Blumstein, Sydney Blumstein, and Harriet Kauffman of Corcoran have the listing.
