At 22 feet wide and situated in one of Manhattan’s most coveted historic neighborhoods, this four-story 1910 Greek Revival townhouse at 34 West 11th Street has all the charm and turnkey convenience buyers battle over. With interiors that could be taken straight from a suburban estate or a Junior League show house, a back yard, and six bedrooms for the whole family, thoughts of a move to the genteel suburbs could end right here–assuming you’ve got the big-city bank account to cover the $13 million ask. For added bragging rights, the house was the official residence of the chancellor of New York University from 1966 to 1973.

On a prime Greenwich Village block surrounded by similarly well-tended townhouses, this home has the magic combination of original details and modern updates like central A/C, a Poggenpohl kitchen and a gracious family-friendly layout. As a single-family home, you get the run of the house, with plenty of room for in-laws, nannies and guests in the garden-level suite with a kitchenette, two baths and an office.

The kitchen was clearly designed with a vision in mind, with a 48-inch La Cornue stove, polished concrete counters, extensive storage, an under-counter wine cooler and Miele appliances.  In the pantry area there’s a microwave/convection oven, a built-in espresso/cappuccino machine, and a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator.
