This extraordinary and rare 1848 23-foot, 4-story beauty with large private south garden is located on a charming tree-lined side street in the heart of the Greenwich Village Historic District. The impressive restored Landmark faade of brick and rusticated-brownstone has a classic pilaster-framed doorway, full-length wooden parlor windows with restoration glass, a high stone stoop and ornamental wrought iron railings with fret motifs and other Greek-inspired designs. Elegant original period interiors are in pristine original condition and retain much of their original layout and all the hallmark characteristics of the late Greek Revival style, with turn-of-the century Arts and Crafts influences in the extension addition of 1897 and roof-top studio of 1923. On the parlor floor, outstanding Greek Revival features include the eared door and window frames with paneled doors and tripartite pocket shutters; wide openings between the two front rooms, flanked by Corinthian-style capitals on massive pilasters with paneled pocket doors; bold curvaceous plaster cornice and large ceiling rosettes of acanthus leaves and roses in a transitional Greco-Italianate style; handsome buff-veined black marble Gothic Revival fireplaces with slightly pointed arches fitted with Rococo-style cast-iron fire grates; and period flooring revealed beneath several later layers. Similar original elements on a more modest scale are also found on the garden and bedroom levels. Converted in the 20th-century to five floor-through apartments, it is now being delivered vacant, with approved plans for re-conversion to a single-family residence. The kitchen, bathrooms and all the mechanicals need replacement with the exception of the 2000 Weil-McLain gas-fired boiler and 6 fireplace linings, which are of heavy-duty metal with "bell-fire" units, an extremely efficient smokeless 18th-C.design. The first showing will be at the open house on Wednesday, June 21st.
