"The row of Greek Revival dwellings on the south side of West 11th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues is one of the finest early 19th Century Streetscapes in the area"Charles Lockwood, "Bricks and Brownstones" - Rizzolli Books
Rarely does a property of this distinction and unique footprint come to market. Here is the opportunity to create a home of extraordinary proportions incorporating two distinct buildings situated on the most sought-after street in Greenwich Village. A classic Greek Revival townhouse with a separate three-story guest house. Both buildings are 22 feet wide on a 94-foot lot.
The main townhouse is an elegant, well-preserved classic row house on the most desirable block in Greenwich Village, often referred to as the "Gold Coast". The rear garden and additional guest house are unexpectedly surrounded by lush greenery offering a green oasis in the center of the Village. The main historic house is 22' X 44' plus an extension, which provides bathrooms on all four floors. As a Greek revival townhouse, the proportions are graceful and elegant, retaining architectural details of the 19th century such as high ceilings, fireplaces, parquet floors, original moldings, and pocket doors. Now divided into four apartments, it can easily be converted back to its grand original configuration as a distinguished single-family home.
The property will be delivered vacant.
The main house is connected to the guest house by a two-story gallery creating a "picturesque secret garden" with the ambiance of an inner courtyard in Provence, an urban oasis in the heart of the city. Both the parlor floor and the gallery have French doors opening out to two separate, sunny balconies for garden viewing. The professionally landscaped garden features gorgeous plantings and a koi pond.
The guest house, although connected on two floors to the main house, is its own entity. With three floors overlooking the garden, it feels like a country cottage with a fireplace in the main room and two bedrooms, each with its own bath. There is garden access from several levels of the house.
The easily accessible roof offers the possibility of an excellent roof garden with views of the entire property and the stunning Village.
Two distinct but connected Historic Townhouses await the vision of a new owner to create New York's most celebrated residence.
