246 West 12th Street is a rare gem in Manhattan’s West Village that offers a unique blend of historic charm and modern luxury. This 19th-century Greek Revival townhome has undergone a meticulous four-year reconstruction, resulting in a turn-key private residence in one of the most sought-after locations in Manhattan.
Spanning five levels with approximately 5,100 square feet of interior space and 1,520 square feet of outdoor space, this home boasts radiant floor heating, a multi-zoned electric snowmelt system, and a Savant smart home system for seamless control of lighting, music, temperature, and security.
The English Basement level boasts generous 9-foot-high ceilings and abundant natural light throughout. A separate entrance leads to a versatile guest room or home office with a full bathroom. The custom kitchen features Italian Arclinea cabinetry, Calacatta Borghini marble countertops with elegant grey veining, and top-of-the-line Sub Zero and Miele appliances. Highlighting this level is a striking double-height, black steel window wall overlooking the south-facing garden, which seamlessly connects to the main entertaining spaces via a secondary open stair. The garden is equipped with a full outdoor kitchenette, natural gas barbecue, and is surrounded by planter beds, creating a serene oasis.
The Parlor level combines classic and contemporary elements with a marble foyer, rich oak floors, a sweeping curved stair bathed in natural light from above, and a statuary marble mantle over a gas fireplace in the living room. The dining area features a Poliform serving console, a separate dry bar with stone slab, and a beverage center, all framed by a double-height window wall offering lush landscaped views.
The third-floor primary level exudes luxury and privacy, with a spacious south-facing bedroom featuring large steel casement windows and French doors opening to an expansive terrace offering treetop views over low-rise townhouses. A Poliform dressing closet connects to a Bianco Dolomiti marble bathroom with a soaking tub, a generous steam shower, and a double vanity with integrated marble slab sinks. The fourth floor houses three spacious bedrooms with ample natural light and skylights, leading to a rooftop deck with ipe wood fencing and an outdoor kitchenette with refrigerator and ice maker.
The owner spared no detail, enhancing the cellar with nearly 14-foot tall ceilings by underpinning and excavating the backyard. A walkable skylight floods the space with natural light. The cellar also features a custom 700-bottle wine room, a separate room, bathroom, spacious laundry area, storage closets, and new mechanical systems. This versatile space is ideal for a home theater, gym, or potential guest suite or staff quarters.
246 West 12th Street sits in the center of one of the world’s most sought-after residential enclaves. Celebrated fine dining and historic watering holes stand shoulder-to-shoulder on the surrounding streets, and the magnificent Hudson River Park, High Line, and Whitney Museum are all within steps of this stunning West Village home.
