SHOWINGS WILL BEGIN SUNDAY MARCH 8 AT OPEN HOUSE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY FROM 2 TO 4
This historic, circa 1830, 22.5 foot wide, wood frame Federal Townhouse, with a brick facade and south garden, sits on a very large 25 foot wide by 108 foot deep lot. Originally built for Hugh Walker on land leased from Clement Clarke Moore who had begun to parcel off portions of his family's vast 1750 estate named "Chelsea". Today the house is officially acknowledged to be the "Oldest Dwelling within the Chelsea Historic District", a fact proclaimed by a plaque next to the front door.
A rare opportunity to recreate a distinguished piece of New York Citys notable past, this very special townhouse is filled with original details and is just waiting for you and your architect's creative vision. It can be restored as an elegant and sophisticated single family home or a multi-family home with rental income as it is classified as a two family dwelling. It has four wood burning fireplaces, two of which have gorgeous original Belgian marble mantels, and one gas fireplace. The moldings, staircase and handrail are all original along with the beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The house will be delivered vacant.
Located between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, and across from the 19th century "General Theological Seminary" and gardens, it is considered to be the most beautiful block in Chelsea. In the heart of West Chelsea, this home is only steps away from the famed High Line Park and New York's thriving art gallery district. The neighborhood also includes the Chelsea Piers sports complex, the Chelsea Market, the exclusive Avenues World School, the new Hudson River Park, and a wide variety of upscale restaurants and shops, plus excellent public transportation options.
