This rare historic mansion right in the middle of Nolita on the Soho border at 38 Prince Street is on the rental market for a princely $65,000 per month. The historic Federal-style Manhattan townhouse, built in 1826, is unique in many ways. It was once the Saint Patrick’s Convent dating back to 1826. The building has seen a thorough overhaul with no expense spared, and it’s now a five-story, 9,600-square-foot mansion with an elevator and top-quality finishes throughout, anchored by a dramatic spiral staircase at its midst. Also here: A Pilates room, a “zen pillow room,” a music room–and more!

The house has three exposures for all-day light, with views of the Saint Patrick’s Basilica. On five floors are seven bedrooms, seven full baths, three half baths, and three working fireplaces.

The parlor floor is as grand as you’d expect, with impossibly high ceilings. Wrapped around a dramatic stair, the formal space offers a wet bar and zen pillow music room in addition to the living room.

Downstairs on the garden level is an open chefs’ kitchen done in warm wood. A spacious dining area features a wall of bifold doors that open to a private two-level garden with a fire pit, built-in grill, and grassed area. Off the garden level entrance is a small suite for staff or guests.

On the home’s fourth and top floor you’ll find a cozy living room tucked under the eaves, with a vaulted ceiling made from the original church beams. There are two more bedrooms up here as well, detailed with large circular windows.

No space goes unused here. The cellar is currently set up as a workout/pilates room.

The home is the size of a small city, and it’s all in the heart of a neighborhood that’s both commercial and historic, surrounded by just about every fascinating destination in downtown Manhattan.
