The kitchen may be in the cellar, but this 2,400-square-foot townhouse at 154 West 11th Street in the lovely western reaches of Greenwich Village keeps every inch of interior space clean, bright and airy. At 20 feet wide with three (legit) floors, it’s understandable why so much thought was put into making sure space was used wisely. Built in 1845 and surrounded by its historic brethren in the Greenwich Village Historic District, the three-bedroom home has been lovingly restored and made ready for modern family life from to its walnut-stained oak floors and four wood-burning fireplaces to its charming garden.
You’d never know you’re in the cellar from this more-uptown-than-Village gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, wood ceiling beams, wood-burning fireplace, Viking range, SubZero refrigerator and farmhouse sink. Also here–more expected at this level–is a big laundry room and plenty of storage space.
The home’s fully restored exterior leads to the main entrance, graced with an elegant vestibule and staircase. A vast great room is the perfect backdrop for entertaining or just showing off another wood-burning fireplace, an antique marble mantle, custom millwork, a Crestron A/V system and state-of-the-art speakers.
Even better, show off the verdant slice of garden paradise (and a pretty powder room).
Up one flight are two bedrooms, another wood-burning fireplace and a bath complete with soaking tub.
The top floor contains a luxurious master suite sanctuary with a large dressing area, another wood-burning fireplace and a marble bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower.
