LISTING OF THE DAY
Location: West Village, Manhattan
Price: $11.25 million
Built in 1826, this classic single-family townhome in the heart of the West Village offers much more than an enviable location.
“Architect/designer Steven Gambrel converted it in 2009 from three luxury apartments back to its original, single-family design,” said listing agent Jordan Shea of Douglas Elliman. “It was further updated by the Environmental Design Group upon the sale of the townhouse by Mr. Gambrel.”
So, although this home is nearly two centuries old, it is also fully equipped with modern luxuries. According to the listing, the property’s nine elegantly designed rooms feature both exposed and lacquered brick walls and there are six original marble fireplaces. The grand historical double-wide windows allow for loads of natural light throughout.
“I love the six wood-burning fireplaces, the ornate lacquer, the beautiful wallpaper, and the skylights,” Mr. Shea said. “Not to mention the location,” on West 10th Street, in the heart of the Village.

The townhome has 3,000 square feet spread out across four floors and three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two powder rooms.
The large eat-in style kitchen features custom lacquered cabinets and stainless steel appliances and countertops juxtaposed with a huge, country hearth-style fireplace. A newly added stainless steel butler’s pantry provides abundant storage and a short flight of stairs adjacent to the garden-level kitchen nook leads to a newly renovated French-bistro-style outdoor patio.
Evidence of the thoughtful design plan for the house are seen in its fine architectural details, which include light fixtures that are true to the home’s original historical context, Nanz custom hardware, French milled flooring and lacquered wood doors.
Since its construction in 1826, the townhome has had many configurations and colorful residents. “Courtney Love is a former tenant,” Mr. Shea said. “And the home is directly across the street from the former residence of Aaron Burr, who occupied it at the time of his famous duel with Alexander Hamilton.”
The townhome’s prime West Village address borders the trendy Meatpacking District and is in close proximity to Chelsea. There are lots of options for high-end shopping and some of the city’s best restaurants, as well as popular attractions including the High Line and the Whitney Museum of American Art, are all nearby.
