In the West Village, some of the best properties are found not in tall glass towers, but right under our noses tucked behind old, pre-war building facades. One of the best examples of this is a new listing by Brown Harris Stevens at 109 Waverly Place. Just a few short blocks away from the hustle and bustle of NYU co-eds trying to get to class, and some of the best restaurants, bars, and dollar slice pizza joints in the other direction, this townhouse is one of the most beautiful homes in the area, hiding right in plain sight.
The six level, 8300 square foot home features eight bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms with a home stocked full of incredible amenities. Other than the 25 feet in width providing ample space for having the biggest party in town, the home also has a sky lit glass stairwell, private elevator, an elevator, 1500 square feet of outdoor space, and radiant heated floors. Not satisfied? It also has a sky lit lap pool all to yourself.
According to the listing, “Previously multi-unit, the historically significant building was converted to single-family by Wayne Turett of The Turett Collaborative. The firm, known for their deep understanding and expertise in Landmarks, worked closely with preservationists to restore the original façade.”
The home is coming to the market at $28 million dollars and is listed by Rachel Glazer. Most importantly, the home still offers residents something that the new glass tower residences never can, a part of New York history in this historic area where your home still feels like an organic part of the city around you.
