PAST, PRESENT, PERFECT.
A legendary Greenwich Village townhouse is re-born.
Adorning one of the most picturesque blocks in the Village, The Millay House exemplifies the artistic heritage and cultural fabric of this fabled neighborhood. The residence has just been meticulously renovated with beautiful modern finishes, yet retains its original character and pedigree.
Historically significant, this light and airy home, built circa 1850, boasts 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a top-of-the-line custom kitchen, a splendid planted garden, 4 wood burning fireplaces, original exposed beams, and a fully finished lower level retreat.
Flooring throughout is reclaimed rift and quarter-sawn antique oak. The beautifully appointed kitchen features white oak cabinetry, custom millwork, Crema Ella Italian marble countertops and backsplash. The windowed master bath, with a balcony overlooking the planted garden, is exquisitely designed with a claw foot tub, separate shower, mosaic tiles, Italian marble and English Lefroy Brooks fixtures. Each fireplace is framed with natural Travertine marble. All of these modern conveniences have been seamlessly integrated, including central air, washer/dryer and new radiators throughout. The 2nd bath features Dolomite and Calacatta marble. Whether cozying up by the fireplace or enjoying the garden as a summer respite, this is truly a house for all seasons.
This unique and storied dwelling has been home to numerous luminaries such as the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, anthropologist Margaret Mead, stage and film stars Cary Grant & John Barrymore. Will you follow in their footsteps?
