I Want This $3.9M West Village Townhouse!

A single-family, 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath townhouse on a cobblestone street in one of New York's most charming neighborhoods awaits its future owner -- wish it could be me. Set on tree-lined 12th Street, it has charming details and modern upgrades so it's move-in ready and doesn't need much work to be done. That is, unless you don't like original wide-planked wood floors or central air conditioning...
The home dates from 1848 and many of the original details remain. It is 19-by-30 feet. One of the best parts of living in the West Village is that because of all the low brownstones you can enjoy the sky and thus the nice weather. This house has both a rear garden and a roof deck (with water, electric and gas) so you can entertain in one of two outdoor spaces (a rarity in Manhattan real estate).

The remodeling on this property is inside and out. The landmark facade has been restored by preservationists and the work includes cornice, lintels, window frames and more. Inside the home has a Crestron A/V system throughout, marble baths with steam showers, wine storage and a video security system. On the first floor there are two working fireplaces, so when you can't enjoy the outdoors the inside will be cozy. Other original details include wood, ceiling beams, marble mantels and the planked-wood floors.

The location is on a peaceful street close to shops, restaurants and gourmet grocery stores. And there's a gym right at the end of the street. This beautiful, renovated home is in a gem of a neighborhood. I SO want this townhouse!
