This historic classic brownstone at 33 Charles Street in the West Village, asking $11.995 million, is the very picture of townhouse charm in a neighborhood that’s overflowing with charming brownstones. Adding to the home’s cachet is the fact that Hilary Swank lived here with then-husband Chad Lowe from when she purchased it for $3.9 million in 2002 until 2006 when it was sold for $8.25 million (h/t New York Post). The home has been completely updated with central air and new windows throughout and every imaginable modern convenience, though much of its original woodwork has been retained.
Sunlight streams into the home from all sides including open glass walls accessing a planted garden via the kitchen or the home’s media room/library at the back.
The welcoming and chef-friendly kitchen rocks a six-burner Wolf range with a double oven, an extra-wide SubZero fridge and two Bosch dishwashers. Limestone flooring in the kitchen continues through tall steel casement doors into the garden for true indoor/outdoor living.
In the landscaped garden are a Weber grill and ivy covered walls; like the rest of this completely livable home, easy to maintain, easy to love.
The home’s main stoop entrance is on the parlor floor through arched double doors. The living room offers a new gas fireplace, as does a media room that opens through a second set of steel-framed casement doors to a terrace with steps down to the garden.
The next floor is occupied by a luxurious master suite with an elegant, well-appointed bathroom. Also here is a spacious dressing room that can double as a nursery or home office. The master bedroom and bath have new gas fireplaces.
On the top floor you’ll find two more bedrooms and a family room/den, plus another family-sized bath.
