A truly magnificent townhouse set on one of the West Village’s most beautiful tree-lined blocks, this sprawling manor presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to live in a grand historic home at the cultural epicenter or New York City. Built in 1846 for the estate of Peter Remsen, a member of a prominent Knickerbocker family, the historic home has been updated with elevator for modern luxury living by acclaimed New York Architect Steven Harris, while retaining its original grandeur and charm.
The showpiece of the main level is the grand staircase that wraps up toward the second level, its classic banister resembling a baby grand piano and reaching up elegantly like the notes of a Brahms concerto. Classic elements of Greek revival architecture accent the main level, which is ideal for entertaining guests and provides plenty of room for large engagements. The space flows seamlessly from the front parlor into a formal dining room /gallery and continues on to a cozy library/sitting area, which in turn opens onto a huge outdoor terrace overlooking the garden below. There is also a separate dining area with an original 1800’s floor-to-ceiling fireplace. The sheer scale of the rooms, with soaring ceilings and dramatic fixtures throughout, imbues a sense of grace and grandeur.
The master bedroom suite encompasses the entire second floor of the house, featuring high ceilings and three huge front windows, along with a fireplace and two walk-in closets. The master suite has two full bathrooms, one of which faces south and has a Waterworks floating tub and custom steam shower with a wall of glass to the outside. The adjoining sitting room offers a second fireplace and can function as either a home office or a master den.
The third floor provides two spacious bedrooms along with a bathroom, kitchenette and elevator access. The front bedroom has the feel of a studio loft, anchored by an artful wood-rafted ceiling, while the rear bedroom features two custom-designed steel casement doors leading out to a private terrace. Finally, the spacious penthouse media floor has two full walls of custom-designed windows and casement-style doors leading out onto a private roof deck.
This fully equipped townhouse includes a street-level service entrance and industrial-size kitchen opening out onto the backyard. Designed by a chef, the kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances including a Viking stove, two Mielle dishwashers and side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerators. The ground level also includes a utilities bathroom with a steam shower off of the kitchen, and a guest bedroom/office.
The unbeatable location is steps from Manhattan’s top culinary destinations, a quiet, exclusive block with all the excitement of the West Village just around the corner.
