The listing for this three-story townhouse at 41 Bethune Street says it's on one of the most desirable residential blocks in New York City, and it would be hard to argue with that. Who wouldn't wan't to live tucked into the leafy and historic townhouse-lined blocks of the West Village—so adorably out of step with the grid—near the Hudson River? And that's pretty much all a two-family 19th century townhouse needs to ask $8.995 million any day of the week, especially if it's not, say, the narrowest house in the city (though there's a certain amount of cachet in that honor). So with that as a starting point, this nicely-preserved brick home is sure to get attention. The raves, though, are likely to be over the multi-level backyard deck where an urban garden is in full bloom.
