Having appeared in House Beautiful, Elle and two coffee table books, the stunning townhouse at 29 Downing Street is not only one of the most photographed homes in New York City, it's also among the oldest.
Built in 1829 on land owned by the third Vice President of the United States, Aaron Burr, "Hamilton" alert!!! — this unique three-story brick carriage house features all the charm and rustic details you'd expect of the period, including exposed beams and brick and original antique wood floors.
The 3,500 square foot home is 25-feet wide and features a curb cut. The ground floor is currently used as a gallery space, lit by huge skylights, while the main living area is on the second floor just off a massive terrace. The current configuration puts three large bedrooms on the third floor surrounding a full bath, while a full roof deck above delivers lovely views of the historic West Village. Set in the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension II, this home provides the perfect canvas to create the home of your dreams while owning a slice of Manhattan history.
Located at the corner of Downing Street and Bedford Street, this home is surrounded by the great restaurants the West Village is known for, including local favorites Blue Ribbon, Da Silvano and Bar Pitti. Small parks dot the neighborhood and Washington Square Park is just blocks away providing ample greenspace. Transportation is effortless with 1, A/C/E, B/D/F/M and PATH trains nearby.
