This charming townhouse on coveted Perry Street is rare to find at nearly 22’ wide. At the heart of the West Village, it has been thoughtfully renovated, while retaining many of its original details. With multiple living and entertaining spaces, five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and eight fireplaces, the house spans approximately 4,100 +/- gross square feet above grade, plus an additional 830 +/- square feet in the cellar. The layout is ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, thanks to its unusual extended depth and “triple parlor” configuration, as well as for gracious and comfortable day-to-day living. There are exceptional ceiling heights throughout, reaching nearly 12-feet on the parlor level.
A gracious entry foyer and stair hall opens to a magnificent triple parlor floor, with over 50’ of entertaining space and clear sightlines from the front to the rear of the house. The sun-filled formal living room overlooks tree-lined Perry Street. Both the living room and dining room/library are spectacular, with original crown moldings and fireplace mantels, while the rear parlor enjoys beautiful views over the garden and opens onto a Juliet balcony. Floor-length double-hung sash windows and french doors fill the graciously proportioned rooms with light. The parlor floor also features a large butler’s pantry or wet-bar, a full bath that functions as an elegant guest powder room, and a coat closet.
One flight up the skylit staircase is the open-plan family level, which includes an informal living room that takes advantage of the full width of the house, a dining area, a large kitchen, and a powder room. The chef’s kitchen has beautiful natural light from a wall of casement windows and doors that open onto a huge terrace, overlooking the beautifully landscaped communal garden, with its mature trees and plantings. The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a 48-inch Viking range with a vented hood, and an Asko dishwasher, as well as a large island, extensive cabinetry and storage, and white marble countertops.
The fourth floor has three bedrooms and two full baths. The primary suite occupies the rear of the floor with a skylight, a fireplace, and walk-in closet. The adjacent four-piece bathroom has a soaking tub and a glass enclosed shower. In the front of the floor are two bedrooms that share a skylit bathroom with a washer and dryer.
The garden floor is designed to function either as a separate apartment, guest suite or work space, or can be used seamlessly as part of the home. It is accessible from its own private entrance under the stoop, leading to a large foyer, or from the main staircase, where a sliding wall can close it off from the upper floors. It offers an open plan living space with a fireplace, as well as a high-end kitchen with stainless steel countertops and a full suite of Viking appliances including a refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. There is a large bedroom, a full bathroom, a study with direct access to the garden, as well as a second smaller bedroom or office. The private patio leads to an extraordinarily beautiful and rare communal garden, shared by only 5 townhomes and St John’s in the Village Church.
The home features modern systems and mechanicals, including 4 zones of central air conditioning. Without doubt one of the finest houses on Perry Street, in one of the most prime locations in the West Village, number 25 is a rare opportunity for discerning townhouse buyers.
