One of a row of historic townhouses in Manhattan’s West Village, this four-story townhouse at 122 West Washington Place is asking $7,750,000. The home once belonged to the late British runway model Stella Tennant, who renovated the brick-fronted townhouse and created its glass-roofed atrium above an extension at the south-facing rear facade.

The Federal-style 3,600-square-foot two-family home is comprised of a garden apartment and a triplex above, capped by a roof deck with lower Manhattan skyline views. The home could easily be converted to a palatial single-family residence, or the lower residence can be used as guest quarters for friends, family, or staff.

With typically enchanting townhouse bones, the home’s spacious interiors are framed by high ceilings and highlighted by four working fireplaces and hardwood floors throughout. The parlor floor is the showpiece: An open kitchen features bright blue cabinetry surrounding a Viking stove with a custom-designed floating vented hood, a SubZero refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher.

Past the kitchen is the real star of the home, a glass-wrapped dining atrium with a jewel-like glass-paned roof. A contemporary glass stair descends at the back of this room to the beautiful garden below.

On the floors above are bedrooms with working fireplaces, creatively-designed bathrooms, and, at the top of it all, a roof deck for enjoying city views over the Village treetops. Additional perks include a Nest-controlled HVAC system and new boiler and hot water tanks.

This picture-perfect downtown Manhattan home is located on a tree-lined street, on the neighborhood’s last unbroken row of historic townhouses,
