Located in Greenwich Village very close to the West Village, this grand 22 foot wide 5-story 1851 brick townhouse was built for the maternal grandmother of the writer Henry James. The townhouse consists of three apartments, two duplexes and one simplex (floor thru) and can be converted to a single family home or provide income for the purchaser. The townhouse reflects both the late Greek Revival and Italianate styles, with its modillioned cornice, handsome Greek Revival doorway, French windows, and cast iron Italianate type railings at the stoop. The house has an impressive entryway leading to the parlor floor of the owner's duplex. The parlor floor is a grand and elegant entertaining space, with soaring 12 foot ceilings graced with bas-relief moldings. There are 3 fireplaces on this floor, two in the large living room and dining space and one in the eat-in kitchen. The ground floor of the owner's duplex contains a master bedroom, sitting area and ensuite bath overlooking a lovely planted garden. There are also two additional bedrooms and garden room on this level. The third floor simplex apartment has two bedrooms, exposed brick walls, beautiful wood floors, original decorative details, fireplaces and a large terrace which overlooks the garden. The duplex has three bedrooms, one on the fourth floor and two on the fifth floor. The very large living room has a high, vaulted ceiling (12.5 to 14.5 ft). There is also a finished roof deck and cellar in the townhouse as well.
