This romantic carriage house in Greenwich Village has a celebrity-studded past–and a handsome future if you take a hint from the attractively staged listing photos of the home at 112 Waverly Place, currently for rent for $21,500 a month. As 6sqft previously reported, the townhouse was once a love nest for ’90s power couple Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. And in 1960 it was purchased by Lorraine Hansberry, who wrote “Raisin in the Sun” and was the first black woman to have a play produced on Broadway.
The home was last up for sale three years ago for $14.9 million. Tucked behind an 1826 Federal Style house, this offbeat property offers privacy, space and charm in one of the city’s prettiest and most desirable historic neighborhoods.
The building began life as a theater, and it has kept–and added–plenty of dramatic features including 17-foot beamed ceilings, a huge atelier skylight, exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a large wood-burning fireplace and two outdoor spaces.
With 1,800 square feet spread over two-and-a-half floors, the the versatile space has been updated with high-end modern fixtures like a Boffi kitchen, Gaggenau appliances and radiant heated floors.
Further creative renovations include two full bathrooms with steam showers and a charming alcove soaking tub.
