Hot on Horatio Street: A Reimagined Historic Townhouse Lists for $26.4M

A magical sliver of New York City that bridges the Meatpacking District and the West Village, Horatio Street is a unique address to have. Moments from the High Line, Whitney Museum, green piers, and glamorous restaurants, there’s no shortage of things to do. But, it costs to live the high life here. A beautiful townhouse just listed serving up dreamy real estate eye candy and a huge asking price: $26.4 million. The 25-foot wide home is pricey, but picturesque.

Dating back to 1901, but rebuilt completely in 2014 and then renovated recently under the watch of the current owner, the landmarked home sparkles with chic design elements. Its 7,900 square foot floorplan spreads across six stories, counting in its ranks 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and 3 partial bathrooms. A parlor floor serves as the entry point, boasting 9’5” ceilings and a dining area lined with bookshelves. A living room beyond opens onto a Juliet balcony, which takes in a neat view of the garden below.

Down a flight of stairs, the garden level hosts the modern kitchen and living space, all warmed by a fireplace. Wall-to-wall accordion glass doors push out into the garden, equipped with lighting and a sound system. It even has a small outdoor kitchen.

Upstairs, each bedroom enjoys its own ensuite bath. A media room and wet bar sit on the top level, just below the roof deck. With city views and sparkling cocktails, who needs to rely on The Gansevoort or The Standard rooftop nearby for glitzy nights out?

Randall Gianopulos of Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage has the listing at 79 Horatio Street.
