On the market for the first time in 22 years, the pair of townhouses at 183 and 185 West 4th Street in Greenwich Village has as much historic cachet as its many charming neighbors. Built in 1897, the property was home to industrialist and art collector Armand Hammer in the 1920s. Today it retains more of its original beauty than most. A painstaking renovation by the renowned architectural firm of Fairfax & Sammons has not only combined and updated the homes for modern living, but given well-deserved attention to every inch of the diminutive jewel-box townhouses–complete with magical patio and garden. The property is asking $7,500,000.
