A wonderful opportunity presents itself to own a stately 4-story townhouse on one of the best blocks in New York’s Greenwich Village. Located on tree-lined 11th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues, this sun-flooded home showcases original detail and boasts a beautiful south garden. This location is unrivaled, as West 11th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues is one of the few Greenwich Village blocks to have retained its history and protected a contiguous line of 21 houses, avoiding high-rise development. Built in 1841 by Andrew Lockwood, Erastus Freeman and James Harriot this house is in the Greek Revival architectural style popular at that time. The house measures 22’ x 45’ on a lot that extends back to 94.75 +- feet and offers 4,168 square feet +/- not including the basement. The house is comprised of 2 duplex residences – a 2 bedroom 2.5 bath “Owner’s” Duplex on the first two levels and a 3 bedroom 2 bath Upper Duplex on the top two floors. The Lower “Owner’s” Duplex boasts a beautifully proportioned parlor living room with 11 foot ceilings that open through an archway to a spacious formal dining room. Pleasant views north to 11th Street and peaceful garden views south over the lush landscaping. On this floor you find the kitchen and powder room. Down 1 flight of stairs you find two bedrooms and 2 baths, ample storage and direct access to the garden. What is so lovely about this section of 11th Street is that the garden abuts a series of neighbors’ gardens offering a truly serene experience. There is a dry basement that houses ample space for storage. The Upper Duplex has a spacious living room, eat-in cook’s kitchen facing 11th Street and a full bath. Enjoy enchantingly beautiful garden views south from the living room. A spacious terrace is access directly from the living room and is a perfect spot to dine alfresco, have a glass of wine, or enjoy some reading. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, an office, full bath, and a separate utility room with full size washer / dryer and ample storage. Available for sale for the first time in approximately 50 years and delivered vacant at closing this offering provides a wonderful opportunity to convert its usage and layout back to a single-family home or keep as is living in one of the duplexes and renting out the other.
