WEST VILLAGE TOWNHOUSE

NEW YORK, NY

Constructed in 1836 in the Greek Revival style, this townhouse has been called the ‘Best Preserved’ house in its West Village row by the Historic District Report. In addition, SPG’s carefully conceived rooftop addition which maximizes the home’s size at 5300 SF was called ‘ingenious’ by the NYC Landmark Commissioners as it seamlessly extended the roofline to mask the sizable additions. The house had been divided into two duplex units, but has been unified by a continuous curving central staircase into a flexible five-bedroom and seven-bathroom single-family home. Additional features include a 500 bottle wine-cellar, an excavated media room beneath the 800 SF rear-yard garden terrace, a modern kitchen, and an open plan parlor floor. A large skylight brightens the 5th floor living area and brings light down through the center of the house through the open stair, while a two-story steel and glass facade unifies the kitchen, dining, and living areas with the outdoor living spaces, creating light-filled interiors.
