Morton Street–a five-block stretch between Bleecker and the Hudson River Greenway–is one of the best streets of the West Village. It’s full of great architecture and historic townhouses, like this one at 44 Morton. The Greek Revival townhouse, built in 1844 and now landmarked, sits at the “turn” in the middle of street as it approaches Seventh Avenue. (According to the Landmarks Preservation Commission, it’s the earliest house built on this side of the block.) The property has been broken up into four condos, and this one is asking $2.7 million. Once occupied by the Nobel Prize laureate Josef Brodsky, it was recently renovated into quite the charming three-and-a-half-bedroom pad.
You enter the 1,200-square-foot apartment on the parlor level. This floor features the living area with 11-foot ceilings, windows on three sides, and a wood burning fireplace. The space faces a private garden and gets lots of light from its southern and western exposures.
The parlor level also hold the recently-renovated Scavolini kitchen, decked out with European appliances and a high bookcase that spans the entire wall. A half bathroom nearby is equipped with a washer and dryer.
The stairs down take you to the master bedroom at the garden level. The bedroom is adjacent to a home office, walk-in closet and a renovated bathroom with a Jacuzzi soaking bathtub.
The second floor holds a large bedroom with exposed brick and wood beams alongside large windows. Then there’s another, smaller bedroom and a renovated bathroom with a bathtub.
This apartment is the result of a combination of two units, 1W and 2W, in 2014. (Check out the gallery for the floor plans.) Renovations lasted between 2012 and 2016, according to the listing. So any buyer will be getting a freshly-renovated apartment within a well-preserved, time capsule of a building.
