If you dream of living in a West Village townhouse with lofty, renovated rooms and charm-filled outdoor spaces, this 1845 beauty at 13 Gay Street could be your summer find. At $25,000 a month, that’s $5,000 per bedroom, though it’s not the sort of spot where you’d expect to find a bargain. At 19 feet wide with four stories of living space, the quintessential historic home has both original details and dreamy modern conveniences.
A careful and thorough renovation has restored the home’s brick walls, high ceilings, decorative fireplaces, transoms and terraces and wide wood plank floors and put them to good use in framing bright, open rooms, new washer/dryer units and central A/C.
A cozy living and dining room makes a perfect entertaining spot, lit by subtle recessed downlights and sunlight from the home’s rear floor-to-ceiling windows.
A newly-outfitted open kitchen boasts a Viking stove, a dishwasher and that gorgeous wall of glass that overlooks and provides access to a private landscaped garden. On the patio, a greenery-covered fence encloses a quiet retreat for planting and dining.
Upstairs, the home offers four spacious bedrooms; a second floor bedroom boasts an adorable roof terrace. There’s an extra small den downstairs that could easily serve as an additional bedroom. The home’s lower level–including a full bathroom–has two more bedrooms and can be accessed from an internal staircase or a separate entrance has been used as a professional office and would make a great guest/nanny/in-law suite.
