In the West Village, a gorgeous brick and stone townhouse with an adjacent carriage house is on the market for $7.995 million.

The three-story Renaissance Revival house is connected to the carriage house through its garden. Together, the two structures have five bedrooms—four in the townhouse and one in the carriage house—and five and a half bathrooms. The main home has a roof deck, a washer/dryer, hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, and a ton of closet space. Though the carriage house has a charming brick facade, it needs a full gut job on the inside.

Currently, the property is configured as a three-bedroom upper duplex with access to the private roof deck, and a lower duplex with access to the garden in the main house. The listing says the carriage house could be used as a guest house or as a rental.

The townhouse, located at 10 Bedford Street, sits on the Greenwich Village Historic District, and was built around 1830 for William Carr, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report. According to the listing, the rear house was originally built as a smokehouse and was converted into a single-family residence in the 1930s.

Taxes for the properties are $3,957/month. Pamela D’Arc, Clayton Orrigo, and Stephen Ferrara of Compass have the listing.
