Perry Street in the West Village is lined with rows of charming historical turn-of-the-century houses in varying styles, including Romanesque Revival and Italianate. And one of those dreamy homes has hit the market for the first time in over 50 years, with a $11.995 million price tag.

Sitting in the Greenwich Village Historic District, the French Second Empire-style structure was built in 1868 and designed by William Naugle, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The 4,425-square-foot, five-story home has eight bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, a terrace, a garden, around 15 closets, and a laundry room and recreation area in the basement.

Its facade features cast-iron balustrades and a triple bay window. Inside, the house maintains its old-world charm with details like eight fireplaces with mantels, decorative moldings, paned windows, wood panels, and exposed brick.

It’s currently setup as an owner’s triplex with five rental units but can be converted into a single-family home, per the listing. The property’s tax bill comes in at $3,845.76/month. Located at 73 Perry Street, between Bleecker and West 4th streets, the house sits near Abingdon Square and the 1 train at Christopher Street.

Lise Lebeuf, Debra Kameros, and Susan Weiner of Compass have the listing.
