This magnificent and rare 24' wide 1847 Greek Revival townhouse in the heart of the coveted Greenwich Village Historic District is situated on one the most prestigious tree-lined West Village streets, close to all the finest amenities the Village has to offer. The four-story house is set back behind a deep front garden encircled by original ornamental ironwork, and enjoys a large, sunny south-facing rear garden and set-back terrace above. The eminent architectural historian, Andrew Scott Dolkart, considers it an authentic period masterpiece, embodying the finest architectural features and gracious elegance of its period -- "a rare commodity... that, through changing tastes and a succession of owners, retains its nineteenth-century character to an extremely high degree." Restored to perfection for contemporary living, the house combines a sense of ease, comfort and radiant warmth with the highest level of aesthetic sensibility and period character. No expense has been spared in its restoration which includes state of the art water, heat/air, lighting and sound systems and a complete restoration of its exterior and interior architectural features. This house stands alone -- the definitive single-family home and the ultimate connoisseur's haven.
