West Village Townhouse

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.
