232 West 10th Street is a brick townhouse in the West Village, constructed way back in 1833. The builder was John C. Blauvelt, who was earning a living as a cartman and built his home “typical of the Federal-style homes being built at the time” according to Daytonian in Manhattan. All these years later the brick facade has remained remarkably in tact. And now that it’s on the market, asking nearly $6 million, we can take a peek inside the well-preserved interior, too.

Although it was built as a single-family home, the configuration has changed and now holds a one-bedroom rental on the garden floor, an owner’s apartment on the upper two floors, and an office space in the basement. The listing suggests that the townhouse could use an upgrade, but we’re smitten with the details that have survived the test of time: six different fireplaces, the original 9-inch plank floors and ceiling beams.

The garden-floor rental holds a living room, bedroom and deck. Then the owners duplex above has three more bedrooms.

Our favorite room of the house is the third floor bedroom, which has its very own private terrace. Just look at those original window panes lining the wall! A working wood-burning fireplace, surrounded by brick, brings you right back to 1833.

The third-floor terrace looks down upon the cute garden below. It’s cozy, low-key and has a nice historic vibe, just like this special townhouse.
