Description

Perfectly perched on the most desirable of all Central Greenwich Village “Gold Coast” blocks, this remarkable 22ft wide townhouse nestled amongst a row of seven elegant, brick, Greek Revival townhouses, is delivered with full, detailed Landmarks-approved plans to create a spectacular contemporary showpiece with around 6,500sf of living space over six floors including an elevator that services every floor. This is a unique opportunity to buy an A-grade location townhouse with fully approved plans ready to commence construction immediately. The painstaking efforts to get to this point make everything else pleasurable.
The plans modify the existing structure completely, including superb living spaces that lead out onto the picturesque south-facing 30ft deep garden that contains one of the most beautiful specimens of a Japanese Katsura tree anywhere in Manhattan as well as exposure to some of the most iconic townhouses in Greenwich Village. The rear glass facade houses a double-height ceiling living space and incorporates sleek metal fins for privacy. The cellar is designed to have 13 foot tall ceilings, ensuring that the volume on all floors is impressive. The glass enclosed rooftop penthouse boasts surprisingly captivating views and can accommodate a rooftop lawn. A generator on the roof is on standby in the event of a power outage.
Originally built by Henry Brevoort Jr. in 1845 as one of four row houses, this home was completely rebuilt in 1978 in a modernist style with a distinctive exterior and large picture windows while retaining certain historical elements. The current structure is remarkably solid and is focused around the concept of an open central staircase (that is flooded with light from a central skylight) from which the rooms unfold and flow on multiple levels. Exceptional Greenwich Village Townhouse off 5th Avenue.
18 West 11th Street is extraordinary in every way. Located just north of Washington Square Park, along the Greenwich Village Gold Coast, this truly unique 21 foot wide home stands out among the classic Greek Revival brick townhouses that surround it.
Originally built in 1845, this historic and landmarked townhouse was completely rebuilt in 1978 by celebrated American architect Hugh Hardy in a modernist style with a distinctive slanted facade. This vast 4 bedroom (currently being used as a 3BR), 5+ bathroom home is a study in New York City contemporary luxury. The interior is designed with the front and rear of the home on different levels, which provides more than 6,000+- sq ft of living space. The entire home feels incredibly open and airy as every level flows from a central atrium and open staircase, topped with a skylight that bathes the space with natural light. The back of the house adds to the feeling of expansive space with a 20 foot wall of glass reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright that provides double-height ceilings, connects the interior space with the rear garden, and serves as a dramatic backdrop for entertaining.
Every level of this architecturally significant residence was recently meticulously redesigned and customized by vonDALWIG Architecture, offering modern living at it's very finest. The top of the line home technology package includes an integrated audio, video, shade and lighting system throughout every level; radiant heat flooring provides year-round comfort; full-house humidification; a remote security and intercom system; a water purification system; even a snow-melting system. This stunning home features a private elevator, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, solid oak Dinesen floors, Toto toilets and Dornbracht bathroom fixtures, plus a laundry room and extra storage area, with multiple outdoor spaces.
Upon approaching 18 West 11th Street, you will be immediately struck by this contemporary showpiece townhouse on a charming block just off 5th Avenue. Enter on the parlor floor and behold the modern, bright and expansive space you never knew could exist inside a historic Greenwich Village townhouse. The stunning space moves fluidly from level to level via the sunny central atrium. The parlor floor and the level above provide two wonderful living areas that flow down to the graceful Henrybuilt kitchen. A chef's dream, it provides abundant prep and storage space plus a huge center island. The 20 foot wall of windows open out to the back garden and terrace, creating a spectacular indoor/outdoor living and entertaining space. The garden features a custom stainless steel outdoor kitchen with Wolf barbecue and Sub-Zero refrigerator, as well as a heated plunge pool.
On the upper floors, 2 bedrooms encompass an entire level each, with en-suite bathrooms (one with a Japanese soaking tub) and generous custom closets. The master suite is located on the top two floors, with one level serving as a grand dressing room and spa-like bathroom. The top floor bedroom is a serene oasis with black paneled walls, a powder room, and a wall of windows leading out to a secluded planted terrace.
The lower levels of the house offer another large living space with a sink and refrigerator plus a full bathroom, and large 4th bedroom with ample custom closets. A private entrance on the garden level allows this space to be utilized as a separate duplex 1BR mother-in-law apartment or staff quarters.
This home really must be toured to appreciate how truly special it is. Contact the exclusive listing agents to schedule your private showing.
