An Artful Townhouse in the West Village

This magnificent and rare 24' wide 1847 Greek Revival townhouse in the heart of the coveted Greenwich Village Historic District, is being offered for sale publicly for the first time in its 170-year history.

Located on a prestigious tree-lined street, the 4-story house is set back behind a deep front garden, and enjoys a large, sunny south-facing garden in back with a set-back terrace above. The eminent architectural historian, Andrew Scott Dolkart, author and professor of historic preservation at Columbia University, speaks of it in his extensive study of the property, as "a rare commodity...that, through changing tastes and a succession of owners, retains its nineteenth-century character to an extremely high degree."

An authentic period masterpiece, the house embodies the finest architectural features and gracious elegance of its period, executed with exquisite craftsmanship, and restored to perfection for contemporary living, with the highest level of respect and aesthetic sensibility, seldom seen today in the Village -- the definitive home for the enthusiastic historian, the passionate art collector, or the visionary artist.
