651 Washington St - West Village - Meatpacking District, New York
Welcome home to a rare and unique 19th Century townhouse situated on a classic tree-lined West Village block. While it's nearly impossible to find over 3500 square feet of living space in such a special location as this, it's even harder to find that space laid out in such a classic, well-designed timepiece as 651 Washington Street, a Federal townhouse in the Greenwich Village Historic District extension. Surrounded by cobble-stone streets and historic, gorgeous tree-lined blocks, this four-story plus rec room brick townhouse features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a home office with separate entrance, large private and landscaped deck, and a full floor recreation room. The current owner has upgraded the interior in the last 18 months with nearly $500,000 worth of renovations, including beautiful White Oak hardwood floors, one-of-a-kind light fixtures by renowned designer Joe Ginsberg, polished nickel bathroom hardware, custom kitchen cabinets, and brand new GE vented washer/dryer. The eat-in kitchen features Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, black granite counters, a large breakfast bar, and direct access to the rear deck, perfect for entertaining and barbecuing, all while maintaining exquisite pre-war details such as oak beamed ceilings. The building also maintains original details (including a landmarked faade) such as tin transoms on each stairway. The second floor features an expansive living and dining room with excellent natural light all day long - this impressive house truly is perfect for entertaining many guests or just relaxing with friends and family. Four gas fireplaces with marble mantles provide warmth and ambiance on every floor. Bedrooms facing both east and west are flooded with sunlight. There is a separate laundry area on the top floor, and a full-floor rec room in the basement, including a soundproof room which was formerly used as a music studio. This special townhouse is nestled in the heart of the West Village, just blocks from classic eateries like the Spotted Pig and newcomers like Red Farm. It is also three blocks from Hudson River Park as well as the Cherry Lane Theatre. It is extremely rare to find a townhouse with this attention to detail in arguably the best location in Manhattan, in impeccable move-in condition.
