For Sale: New York Brownstone
Rare opportunity to own a 24-foot wide West Village townhouse with its own carriage house, horse walk and fully excavated lower level. Meticulously renovated by its current owners, this house boasts approximately 7,500 square feet of living space with an additional 670 feet of bluestone private courtyard. The house itself has six bedrooms, four full baths and four powder rooms. This red brick Italianate-style townhouse offers an exceptional level of privacy, light and flexibility.
Approach the house up a beautifully rebuilt stoop through recessed double doors, framed by cable moldings. Or enter through the garden level horse walk and continue to the rear courtyard accessing the main house’s kitchen and a newly rebuilt two-story carriage house, equipped with a wet bar and a powder room, convertible to a full bath and an office or bedroom.
The five-story main house is connected by a handcrafted elliptical staircase and a paneled elevator. The garden level includes a double height eat-in kitchen with Nanz hardware, end grain oak flooring, a large butler’s pantry and formal dining room. The parlor floor enjoys tremendous southern exposure and privacy onto the courtyard as well as the carriage house. The top floor media room is bathed in glorious northern “painter’s light” via a room-sized skylight.
The lower level is completely excavated and transverses the property’s entire 24x80 foot lot enjoying natural light from two classic New York vault lights. Currently used as a play space, laundry room, wine cellar, and multiple storage areas, this floor provides a convenient connection between both houses without stepping outside.
Although the serene cobblestone street remains as it did when 336 West 12th Street was built in 1859, the 2013 renovation includes the latest technological conveniences including a state of the art security system, Crestron controlled Lutron lighting, automated shades and HVAC with 19 zones. Simply best in kind.
