A Charming Former Carriage House Near Washington Square Park Asks $10.5M
Traces of New York City’s past as a hub of horse-and-buggy transportation are visible everywhere. Horses still, controversially, lead carriages through Central Park. And when you tour NYU, a major stop is a stretch of former horse stables a block from Washington Square Park—many now house various departments and offices for the institution. Not all of these neat little Greenwich Village abodes on Washington Mews belong to higher education, however. Some, like the former carriage house at number 64, are private residences. Now on the market asking $10.475 million, the townhome has charm in spades.
This renovated carriage house was originally built in the 1840s and maintains a quaint feel. Artful maintenance freezing the exteriors in time while allowing for modern updates and fresh interiors. With its low and painted façade, it almost looks like it belongs in London’s darling Notting Hill neighborhood. Happily, it is firmly planted in NYC.
A deeded parking spot—how many Manhattan homes can claim that?—sits not far from the front door on the gated street. Entry reveals a formal foyer that opens to the airy kitchen, dining, and living area. Then, a cozy 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms lie up a walnut banister staircase.
Some of the home’s greatest perks await beyond the cobblestoned street, though. Buyers may be surprised to learn that 64 Washington Mews is an extension of One Fifth Avenue, a renowned and landmarked skyscraper co-op nearby. Whoever picks up this gem will have full access to the building’s luxurious amenities.
Jason Walker of Douglas Elliman holds the listing, not far from another new Greenwich Village offering. A lavish townhouse where Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner recently stayed is also for sale.
