As one of New York City’s many hidden-in-plain-sight secret addresses, Pomander Walk is a gated 1920s community of Tudor-style mini-homes resembling an English village nestled right in the middle of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The brightly-painted home at 265 West 94th Street, asking $2.5 million, is a rarely-available opportunity to live in this unique village-in-the-city community.

The community’s 27 homes sport facades of stucco, brick, and half-timber, with flowering gardens and window boxes adding to its otherworldly charm. In 1921, nightclub impresario Thomas J. Healy built the romantic enclave as a temporary means of income while raising capital to build a large hotel intended to eventually replace it. The mini-village was inspired by a play by the same name that was set in a fictional lane near London. Healy died in 1927 before his vision could be realized, but he left behind a unique gem.

You could call it a condo or co-op replacement, but this three-bedroom duplex home is a little too special to be a “replacement” for anything so ordinary. And it’s surprisingly modern inside. The open floor plan features a sunny living room, a spacious kitchen with integrated appliances, a dining room and powder room on the first floor.

On the second floor are three spacious bedrooms, a washer and dryer and two baths. Just outside the window of the sun-filled master bedroom are window boxes in bloom. A large hallway separates second and third bedrooms for privacy.
