Calling all buyers who have dreams of a designing their own mega-mansion. This West Village townhouse, at 541 Hudson Street, already has tons of living space over four floors, and comes with an additional 1,400 square feet of unused air rights. It’s an opportunity, as the listing puts it, for “the purchaser to increase the size of this extraordinary home”–but you’ll have to cough up $7.995 million first. Currently, the townhouse is broken up into an income-producing commercial space and two separate, impressive apartments.

The current configuration is a street level retail space (currently rented to a flower shop), a private garden one-bedroom, floor-through apartment on the second floor, and a top-level duplex apartment with a loft and double-height ceilings.

The owner’s duplex is easily the most impressive space within the home–the lofty living room is stunning with exposed brick, wooden ceiling beams, a modern fireplace and a massive double-height window.

On the second level of the owner’s duplex, a bedroom boasts a working fireplace, full bathroom and a separate landing that’s perched over the double-height living room. The landing offers an extra sitting area, as well as a place to look down and gawk at the dramatic space.

Here’s a look at the ground-floor garden. Besides the garden, the townhouse comes with other perks that include two laundry areas, storage space, a wine cellar and separate recreation room with a bathroom and working wood burning fireplace in the basement. Just imagine what you could add on with those extra air rights!
