A fully furnished townhouse in Greenwich Village’s landmarked MacDougal-Sullivan Gardens Historic District is available for a short-term lease for $40,000 per month. The 5,000-square-foot home has four levels along with a windowed cellar and a spectacular rooftop penthouse.

Enter the Greek Revival style townhome on the basement level to find a spacious living room with wood-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and three oversized windows. This space opens directly to the verdant rear garden that backs into the community’s shared garden. Upstairs, the first floor has a dining area, media room, and kitchenette.

The master suite occupies the entire third level and features a private balcony, two en suite baths—one with a steam shower and the other with a window and a soaking tub—a large dressing room, and a study. A sitting area with two bedroom suites take up the fourth floor, while the terraced roof boasts a sky-lit penthouse with a retractable roof and city views. The home also has a windowed cellar, which has an eat-in kitchen, laundry, and a home office or maid’s quarters.

MacDougal-Sullivan Gardens Historic District contains only 22 houses that share a private garden. The homes were originally built in the mid-19th century and purchased in 1920 by high-end furniture retailer William Sloane (not to be confused with the Presbyterian clergyman William Sloane Coffin or the educator William Milligan Sloane whose mansion is on the Upper East Side). Sloane renovated the homes, intending to turn them into a middle-class development, but as the modern day $40,000-per-month price tag indicates, this home is anything but middle class.
