In the late 1960s, this East Village house at 321 East 6th Street was owned by none other than Andy Warhol, during which time his close friend, film director Paul Morrissey, lived at the address, too. Today, the Anglo-Italianate brick townhouse has been chopped up into five units, but it retains many original details from even before Warhol’s time, including two wood-burning fireplaces, crown moldings, 13-foot ceilings, and parquet and hardwood floors. It’s just been listed for $4,950,000 with the option to convert the home into a grand single-family residence.
The house is ideally situated right next to the landmarked Community Synagogue, meaning that the views from three exposures are pretty safe. There’s a separate garden-level entry that leads to a lovely landscaped backyard complete with a pond and flagstone patio.
The entire place covers nearly 6,000 square feet with an additional 2,300 square feet of developable rights. It will be delivered vacant (sorry if you wanted to keep that shrine in place) with a suggested alternate floorplan that includes a roof deck.
