On a postcard-pretty block of the West Village, the single-family townhouse at 66 Charles Street was recently cleared of all imperfections in a top-to-toe reconstruction by noted architect David Hottenroth and master builder Hobbs Incorporated, while retaining many of its original details. The 1899 Italianate-style home offers 3,600 square feet of covetable Village townhouse living with every modern comfort and convenience to make daily life easy. The house sold for just under $8 million in 2014, and now, after its multi-year renovation it’s asking $14.5 million.

Light-filled rooms with a clean, contemporary feel meet classical architectural detail behind a graceful landmarked facade. An open double-height parlor floor holds living and dining rooms and a steel-framed, factory-style glass window wall; it’s visually dramatic, as is a floating library suspended above the living room. A curved staircase–a staple for Mr. Hottenroth’s Greenwich Village townhouses–ascends to the top floor.

A well-equipped chef’s kitchen is is clad in honed Arabescato marble. The clean, white space may look compact but the center island workspace offers plenty of room for culinary creation.

A tranquil full-floor master suite holds court with three additional top-floor bedrooms. Chevron white oak flooring and ravishing Venetian plaster, lacquer and French deco-inspired faux Shagreen finishes are just some of the home’s more decorative details.  In case it all gets too serious, there are mill-worked sailor’s bunks and a modern wine cellar on the home’s lower level.

In addition, a landscaped and lovely roof garden is a West Village dream.

The home was brought completely up to its future-proof for modern family living in the graceful elegance of an historic townhouse. Behind the scenes, brand new mechanicals, integrated systems for entertainment and lighting and custom mahogany landmark windows
