Built in 1846, this move-in ready Greek Revival townhouse at 53 Jane Street, asking $10,725,000, is one among many graceful, classic brick homes on a pretty West Village street. Behind the original brick facade and stone stoop with cast iron railings, the home’s interiors are a contemporary showcase of newly-installed luxury, from the fully-appointed chef’s kitchen to the glazed rear wall overlooking the back patio. A one-bedroom garden-level apartment can be integrated into the triplex above, or used as a separate unit for income, guest quarters, or a home office.
The four-story, 19-foot-wide townhouse is comprised of an upper triplex and a garden flat. On the parlor level, the sun-filled living room features custom shelving and matte-finish wide-plank hardwood floors.
The custom kitchen is chef-ready with a six-burner Wolf range. It’s also ready for entertaining with a wine fridge and a four-seat center island. At the rear, a glass wall with sliding doors opens onto a deck, with a bluestone patio and garden below.
On the second level are two bedrooms, each with large walk-in closets. Each has a large, luxurious bath, and they share a laundry room and linen closet.
The third level is truly next-level. The entire floor is made up of the primary bedroom suite, with a huge private terrace just outside.
This regal chamber gets a dedicated closet-lined dressing area, which leads to a magnificent bath with a steam shower, Toto bidet toilet, and a soaking tub. Also present: a morning bar with a compact dishwasher and beverage drawer, custom shelving, and cabinetry.
Back downstairs on the garden level, a separate apartment can be accessed via an internal stair or an entrance beneath the stoop. This beautifully renovated apartment features a custom kitchen with Bosch, Wolf, and Fisher Paykel appliances. The adjacent living room opens onto a private patio and shared garden, complete with gas lines for grills. The front bedroom has two windows; a spacious en-suite bath offers a Toto bidet toilet. A mudroom and laundry add convenience to this pretty ground-floor flat.
In the cellar are a walk-in cedar closet and brand-new mechanicals. This historic West Village townhouse gives you plenty of options, all with the advantage of being situated on one of Manhattan’s most coveted streets.
