Listing of the Day
Location: West Village, New York
Price: $10.995 million
This versatile West Village townhouse unit is presented to the market as a blank canvas rich with potential. Bought 17 years ago by its current owners, it is currently a multi-purpose unit, housing an upscale beauty salon, as well as two floor-through apartments.
Despite this current arrangement, it could easily be converted back into the single-family home it was built to be. The options do not end here, however, with the unit also being offered for sale and/or for rent. The salon alone is for rent for $30,000 per month, or the entire house can be rented for $45,000 monthly.
The property’s listing boasts that however a buyer might choose to configure the house, they can’t go wrong, as they “will have a spectacular canvas for [their] creation as every floor of the building is flooded with light.”
Roomy for a New York townhouse at 20-by-40-feet-wide, “you can really feel the width inside,” said agent Eileen Robert. The feeling of spaciousness is magnified by the unit’s light and airy interior, as well as its open plan spaces.
Although thoroughly modernized, the home retains many of its original 18th century features, including fireplaces, high ceilings, decorative moldings and hardwood floors.
The four-story townhouse has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Its interior is roughly 3,600 square feet, and a lot size with roomy dimensions of 20 x 40 feet and 800 square feet.
The house shares its elevator with its next door neighbors. Its doors that open on either side, serving both buildings, which once had the same owner.
As well as an elevator, the townhouse also offers a private backyard, a number of working fireplaces, a video intercom, and a washer and dryer.
This townhouse was built in 1839 for William T. Whittemore, whose father, Samuel Whittemore, a well-to-do manufacturer of textile machines, was a 19th century Greenwich Village developer and proprietor of an underground railroad stop. According to Ms. Roberts, The Whittemores were the first family of abolitionists in the village.
