On the quiet West Village neighborhood along Charles Street, homes are dotted along tree-lined sidewalks and speckled with designer boutiques blending into brick façade town homes. While they all are only steps away from transit hubs, pizza places, Michelin starred restaurants, and plenty of parks, they secretly hide some of the best uber luxury, multi-level homes in the city. 85 Charles Street, a new listing from Brown Harris Stevens, is one of these homes, built to a higher standard, and just hit the market at just under $15 million.
The home is unique in its interior design. While the façade of the building is a brick townhouse that seemingly looks the same as its next door neighbors, the inside unveils a luxurious interior built to pay homage to the regal kings and queens of England with tufted headboards and sofas, pale blue walls, and ornate lighting. While the space reflects a lot of old world moments, it also brings the home into the 21st century with modern kitchens and bathrooms fitted with state of the art amenities and fixtures.
Spread over five stories, the home, originally built in 1868, featured five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two powder rooms, and a full floor master suite, all in remodeled, mint condition. The space also features the original pine floors, wood burning fireplaces, and central air, which despite luxury accommodations are hard to find all under one room in pre-war buildings downtown. For those looking to find a home that meets the luxury needs and requirements of the modern day, coupled with the historical significance of the neighborhood, this townhouse offers the perfect balance in style and substance.
