This perfectly scaled and crafted Steven Harris-designed townhouse is located on arguably the most desirable of all West Village cobbled streets not too far West or East. With meticulous attention to detail, this elegant Historical landmark is just moments from the Hudson River Park, The New Whitney Museum, The Meatpacking District and all the charms of Greenwich Village that deliver on every level with the best selection of boutiques, restaurants and entertainment.

Originally constructed in 1910, this recently completed 20 foot wide imposing home was gutted to the core with every floor re-calibrated to maximize ceiling heights. Every imaginable detail has been considered in this renovation, including brand new high-tech mechanical systems that include sophisticated AV systems and pre-wiring, radiant heated flooring, and ducted, zoned central air-conditioning throughout.

The Layout:

Basement: The basement if fully finished out with oversized laundry, wine storage and massive storage area.

Garden floor: An entry allows access below the stoop stairs. An intimate bedroom suite is located to the north side. An oversized storage room and powder room are centered in the middle, and to the rear on the south-side is a large bedroom suite or office that opens up onto the spacious sun-flooded garden with detailed landscaping and an impressive degree of privacy achieved through a trellis structure.

Parlor Floor: A gracious stoop stairway leads to the loft-like open living room with wide gleaming hardwood floors. This floor comprises a seating area surrounding a wood burning fireplace, and a kitchen/dining room that opens onto a terrace overlooking the south-facing garden. The terrace floor is structural glass that allows light to travel to the garden floor below. The kitchen is superbly outfitted with custom cabinetry and the best finishes and fixtures including appliances by Sub Zero, Miele and Wolf.

Third Floor: This entire floor is dedicated to the Master Suite. The south-facing bedroom features a large balcony overlooking the gardens and a wood burning fireplace. Expansive walk-though closets are immaculately outfitted and lead to the en suite bathroom with three windows that flood the room with natural light all day. The bathroom features a freestanding clawfoot tub and twin sinks with molded marble counters.

Fourth Floor: This floor houses a large full-width bedroom suite facing north with a walk-through closet. On the south side are two smaller bedrooms that share a bathroom. These two bedrooms are easily combined into a large single bedroom with an en suite bathroom if so desired.

Penthouse: The top floor has a vestibule that opens to a penthouse terrace, exquisitely landscaped with a privacy hedge of Hornbeam trees and it includes a sizable hot tub.
