Masterful plans are now in place to create your dream 25 foot wide 7 story Greek Revival mansion on an oversized spectacularly placed Greenwich Village Gold Coast lot. For the past 2 years, renowned AD100 architect Steven Harris and team drew on the sensational unparalleled width, depth and height this magnificent historic property offers to create a mansion with sensationally proportioned and voluminous rooms for daily living and entertaining, which speak well to 4 green terraces, deep lush garden and a magical center circular open staircase which will open and connect the heart of the home from the lower Amenity Level five stories up. The staircase carefully created a decorative moment not seen in any Village home that showcases the homes grandeur. This fast tracked project is a rare opportunity that still allows for buyer customizations. Do all, some, or none of this renovation as the house in it’s current state is in fantastic “move-in” condition as it stands.
Parlor Level – You are received through a wide gracious Entry Foyer and then step past the large formal Dining Room and the home’s magnificent showpiece open circular staircase to arrive in a full width Living Room, which is marked by a centered wood burning fireplace and triple south facing oversized French doors. The French doors open to a contiguous wide and deep terrace which overlooks the garden below, which can be accessed by an exterior staircase connecting these outdoor spaces. The Parlor level is completed with a powder room, wet bar, back service hall with dumb waiter and separate service stairs which lead quietly down to the service Scullery behind the Kitchen on the Garden Level.

This is an exceptional offering on the very best of Gold Coast blocks and precise mid-block location. Architectural plans are included in sale. However, the townhouse as it stands is in great condition – ready to move in – with a recent renovation. It currently boasts solid oak wood floors, zoned central air, marble baths, chef’s kitchen and every other modern convenience. So a buyer could keep it ‘as is’ or elect to do a more modest renovation.
