Asking $13 million, this single family Greek Revival home at 57 Bank Street embodies what West Village townhouse dreams are made of. As with most such examples of perfection, original historic details are combined with an eye for color and style, and there’s a landscaped garden and three terraces. City records show that the townhouse is owned by Anne McNally, Vanity Fair contributor and ex-wife of restaurateur Brian McNally, so it’s not surprising that the five-story home has been featured in the pages of House and Garden, British Vogue, and W.
We can see the fashion influence and intimate charm in the artfully staged home, framed by sunlight that highlights chic and whimsical details. The rooms are large and welcoming, casual and relaxed; yet the perfectly-restored frame of the historic home is always present.
On the garden level, a casual yet perfectly-designed loft-style chef’s kitchen opens to a sitting room with a woodburning fireplace. Beyond, an expanse of glass reveals the gorgeous landscaped garden. Also on this floor is an office with windows that look out onto the garden.
Up the stoop at the home’s formal entrance, a grand open salon boasts a wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a terrace overlooking the garden below. Also here are a powder room and another sitting room with original wooden shutters and tall windows overlooking the tree-lined street.
Upstairs a luxurious master suite is complete with a fireplace, dressing room and luxurious marble bath; on the top floors are three more bedrooms and two more terraces.
McNally’s Paris home was also featured in the pages of Architectural Digest; we can see a theme of casual and elegant style and historic bones–and the West Village is about as close to Paris as New York City gets.
