An Esteemed 120-Year-Old West Village Townhouse Seeks $4.75M

For the first time in 20 years, this historic townhouse in the West Village is looking for a new owner. With praised architecture and historic integrity, the charming two-bedroom, two-bathroom at 34 Commerce Street has lots to offer.

Built in 1901, this brick townhouse was created to be a wagonshed, according to a 1993 article by the New York Times. Though much has changed since the property’s transition from being a home for wagons to housing people, its quaint aesthetic remains intact. Exposed beams and one-of-a-kind built-ins showcase the home’s character. Beautifully aged mantels accompany two wood-burning fireplaces, creating a delightfully cozy atmosphere.

The 2,200-square-foot property has received the Municipal Art Society of New York – New York Preservation Award, in addition to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation Front Stoop Award. With stunning architectural details dating back 120 years, the desire to preserve this property comes as little surprise. It also earned a prestigious AIA National Design Award for Single Family Residential.

The home’s interior design respects the property’s traditional history and architecture. Warm wood furniture throughout welcomes potential buyers, and the home can even be sold fully or partly furnished. Ample windows and pops of warm tones support a bright and homey feel.

Fredrik Eklund, John Gomes, Gavin Shiminski, and Keith Copley from Douglas Elliman hold this West Village listing.
