Step Inside a Historic Yet Contemporary West Village Townhouse Seeking $16.5M

For those wanting to live in the West Village, a famously charming and historic NYC neighborhood where celebs like Marc Jacobs and Hilary Swank have resided, this home is the crème de la crème. The $16.5 million price tag reflects that and certainly narrows the pool of those who can buy it.

Built in the early 19th century, the recently renovated Federal-style townhouse spans five distinct floors connected by an elevator. A stunning glass foyer, state-of-the-art kitchen, and spacious living and dining area constitute the first floor – three visibly separate spaces connected by an open floor plan. Walk up a flight of wooden cantilevered stairs to a full-floor master suite with a walk-in closet and five-fixture bathroom. Climbing still higher, buyers will find the other three bedrooms, a sizable home office space, and a wet bar and an outdoor terrace ideal for entertaining.

In the warmer months, the rooftop terrace’s outdoor kitchen and living space, complete with stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, create a comfortable perch for post-dinner sunset viewing parties. For those in need of some quiet or fresh air, the garden level’s outdoor space and home office, complete with a wine refrigerator, combines to form a private inner sanctum.

Then, out the front door, the splendor of the city awaits. Located at 327 West 4th Street, a new owner is a short walk away from the famed Comedy Cellar, the renowned Whitney Museum of American Art, and countless world-class restaurants and shopping. A storied yet contemporary gem in the lively metropolis, the home is listed with Nadia Bartolucci and Rachel Altschuler of Douglas Elliman.
