Description

Rare opportunity to renovate an outstanding and historic townhouse on a prime Greenwich Village block. Originally constructed in 1855 and offered for sale for the first time since 1967, 127 West 12th Street is a stunning 22.5’ wide, 5 story Italianate mansion with incredible potential to create an elegant, grandly-scaled home.
This beautiful townhouse has a classic and rare stone facade, with a segmental arch above double front doors, bracketed roof cornice, and intricate original ironwork adjacent to the entry stair. The interior retains numerous architecturally significant original details, including fireplaces with original mantelpieces and gorgeous herringbone oak floors on the parlor level, which features dramatic ceiling height of over 12’. The upper floors each have excellent ceiling heights as well, ranging from 8’4” on the top floor to 10’ on the second. The house currently has a total of eight units. The private and romantic garden, accessed from both the garden and parlor levels, is 35’ deep, with beautiful plantings and an enchanting blue stone patio.
This is truly an extraordinary opportunity to create a grandly proportioned home, with historic architectural details, in a superb location on the border of the Central and West Village. With the Greenwich Lane project nearing completion, and the remainder of the street composed primarily of beautiful townhomes, this block has become one of downtown’s most desirable addresses. 127 West 12th is an exceptional townhouse offering – one not to be missed. Located on one of the finest tree-lined blocks in Greenwich Village, 127 West 12th Street represents a rare opportunity to convert a large 5-story, 8-unit historic Italianate townhouse into a spectacular single family residence OR renovate the large multi-family townhouse for investment purposes. This spacious and extraordinary property is 22.5’ wide and consists of approximately 5,600 interior square feet.

127 West 12th Street boasts a striking stone facade, an intricate arch perched on top of double front doors, and a classic brownstone stoop accompanied by original ironwork and ornamental flourishes. Built in 1855, this home features classic Italianate architectural details, herringbone oak floors, stunning crown moldings, grand fireplaces complemented by striking mantelpiece throughout, oversized drawing room windows, and impressive ceiling heights reaching up to 12.5’. This home also includes a 35' deep charming private garden, which can be accessed from both the parlor and garden levels, providing an ideal oasis from city life. The large basement can be transformed into additional living space. This magnificent townhouse provides an incredible opportunity to create the home of your dreams.

This is a truly unique property that exemplifies the expert craftsmanship of 19th century architecture in New York City. The house is currently configured as an 8-unit building with 3 studios, 3 one bedrooms, and 2 full floor two bedrooms. The home will be delivered vacant.

This house is located on a quaint block in the Greenwich Village Historic District, where you’ll easily find some of the best restaurants in New York City. Also in close proximity to the West Village, Meatpacking District, Washington Square Park, Union Square and the High Line, this townhouse is at the center of it all. B/D/F/M, L, 1/2/3, A/C/E and PATH trains all within easy reach.
