My Notes

In an ancient part of our fair city, nestled among the leafy streets of Greenwich Village's Southeast corner, there is a treasure trove of landmarked Federal and Greek Revival townhouses. This famously coveted neighborhood, known as the Charlton-King-Vandam Historic District, was lovingly created by the renowned 19th Century mogul, John Jacob Astor. Astor built these handsome homes upon the grounds of what was once one of America's most important homes -Richmond Hill Estate - a 26 acre, 18th Century plantation whose residents included George Washington, John Adams and Aaron Burr. Steeped in this history, and graciously situated on Charlton Street's sunny Southside, this fantastic Federal home is among the most prized on its beautiful block. Completely renovated and reinvented, this residence has never been as extraordinary as it is today. As you step up its sweet stoop and enter the Parlour Level from its custom front door, you immediately sense the quality and craftsmanship that are the hallmarks of this remarkable townhouse. Greeted by custom glass foyer doors by famed artist Dennis Abbe (former President of NY's Art Deco Society and disciple of Erte), you ease into the luxurious Living Room, with its 17th Century French marble mantle gracing its gas fireplace, and you flow into the lovely Dining Room, with its seductive curved wall and stunning pair of etched glass pocket doors, also created by Abbe. The eat-in Chef's Kitchen, with its marble counters, marble mantled gas fireplace, and its South-facing Garden-view deck, offers an elegant stage for breakfast and lunch, and serves as the gateway to this home's private backyard - a landscaped, South-facing, River Birch Garden, inspired by Paris' royal Jardins des Tuileries. The central character of this distinctive residence is its iconic elliptical stairway - a work of art unparalleled in its craftsmanship, which took artisans a year to create, which serves to bridge every fantastic floor of this inspiring townhouse, and which is crowned by its signature oval skylight by Alfredo Carballutti. Just up from the Parlour is the Master Suite. Replete with its own South-facing, Garden-view terrace, a stupendous custom, walk-in Mahogany closet, and Marble Master Bath, this Master Suite is worthy of its name. The Guest Suite, currently configured as a handsome Den, is also on the 2nd floor, and offers an en suite marble Bath and custom French Walnut cabinetry. The 3rd floor offers space enough for two more Bedrooms, yet is currently presented as an Office with its own South-facing, Garden-view terrace and an open Den/Gallery. The Garden-level, just below the palacious Parlour floor, is currently presented as a private home within the home - a proper one-bedroom residence that offers wonderful investment opportunity, yet an impressively scaled space which can easily be re-incorporated into the tony townhouse above. In this fabled corner of New York City, there is a home with an important past - a home with character - a home with brilliance - a home whose re-invention, renovation, and restoration blend vibrantly with its impressive history to create a 21st Century townhouse treasure.  More Less

    Market guide

    Zillow predicts New York home values will rise 3.7% next year, compared to a 1.7% increase for New York Metro as a whole. Among New York homes, this home is valued 3070.9% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 411.3% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In New York, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 53.6% lower than in New York Metro, and 76.3% less than the national average. This lower local number could help New York home values rise more quickly than other regions in New York Metro.
