In the heart of the West Village at 53 Horatio Street, this three-bedroom home has just listed for $3.25 million. The 1834 Federal rowhouse was divided into six co-ops, but the units still retain their 19th-century charm. This residence spans an impressive four floors, hence why the listing describes it as a “house within a house.” In addition to its spacious, vertical layout, the apartment is the perfect mix of country decor and contemporary amenities.

The home has four wood-burning fireplaces throughout, including one on the parlor floor which is nice and bright thanks to an oversized, south-facing window. A custom, built-in banquette works as a lovely breakfast nook, and there a separate sitting area, as well. This floor also has a powder room.

Down on the garden level is a kitchen that was renovated in 2016. It boasts top-of-the-line appliances, glass-fronted cabinets, and enough space for a large dining table. Off the kitchen is a full bath. On the other side of the floor is a flexible bedroom/den with another wood-burning fireplace, this one with an original brick surround. There’s custom overhead storage and a Murphy bed (see the white wall next to the fireplace.)

Up on the second level is a large bedroom with the third fireplace, an exposed brick wall, and elegant shutters on the south-facing windows. There’s an en-suite bathroom and deep closet.

The top floor currently functions as the master suite and has the same configuration as the bedroom below.

53 Horatio Street is about as charming as it gets in the Village. The brick rowhouse has a part-time superintendent, video security, and common storage space in the lobby. Unfortunately, pets and pied-a-terres are not permitted.
