As one of New York City’s many hidden-in-plain-sight secret addresses, Pomander Walk is a gated 1920s community of Tudor-style mini-homes resembling an English village tucked away in the middle of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Asking $2.175 million, the landmarked three-story Tudor-style co-op triplex behind a private gate at 263 West 94th Street, landscaped with hydrangeas and rose bushes and framed by window boxes and enchanting views is part of a unique village-in-the-city community.

The home’s third story holds its master bedroom accented by vaulted ceilings and exposed brick. Up here is another full bath with a rain shower and another bedroom. The unit also has an attic/bonus room.

The Pomander Walk community’s 27 homes sport facades of stucco, brick, and half-timber, with flowering gardens and window boxes adding to the enclave’s otherworldly charm. In 1921, nightclub impresario Thomas J. Healy built the romantic enclave as a temporary means of income while raising capital to build a large hotel intended to eventually replace it. The mini-village was inspired by a play by the same name that was set in a fictional lane near London. Healy died in 1927 before his vision could be realized, but he left behind a unique urban gem.
