It would be difficult to pass by the landmarked townhouses of Grove Street and not take notice of this perfectly-preserved snapshot of life in the West Village of the 1800s. Asking $7,500,000, 4 Grove Street is one of four featured on a “Landmarks of New York” plaque that immortalizes these Greek Revival homes built between 1825 and 1834. The 2,200-square-foot, three-story brick townhouse has retained its 19th-century architecture, with arched entryways, exposed brick, and wood beams. Within is the highest level of timeless comfort in the form of renovated marble bathrooms, a greenhouse, a private outdoor garden, wood-burning fireplaces–and a wine cellar built into an underground street tunnel from the same era as this unusual home.

On the entry floor is a double living room that spans the length of the home. With two wood-burning fireplaces, stained pine flooring and surprisingly delicate architectural details, the space lends itself to cozy and casual living as well as grand entertaining.

On the garden level, a rustic shaker chef’s kitchen is a perfect fit for the historic home, framed by custom sage-hued cabinetry, hefty ceiling beams, exposed brick walls, and several fireplaces. High-end appliances fit seamlessly into this urban farmhouse gathering space.

Two bedrooms on the second floor overlook the historic townhouses and gardens of Grove Court. On the home’s top floor is a lovely primary suite, made more dramatic with vaulted ceilings and a windowed walk-in closet.

The home’s many charms include a glass-walled sun-filled greenhouse and a private outdoor patio. As mentioned, a private wine cellar (not shown) was created in a former city tunnel.

The home is available furnished, for an even easier move-in. If you live here, though, be prepared to answer questions from tourists who won’t be able to resist the charms of this historic oasis in the heart of the West Village.
