Town House

Built in 1852

246 West 12th Street is a rare gem in Manhattan's West Village, blending historic charm with modern luxury. This 19th-century Greek Revival townhome underwent a meticulous four-year reconstruction, resulting in a turn-key private residence in one of Manhattan's most sought-after locations.

Spanning five levels with approximately 5,100 square feet of interior space and 1,520 square feet of outdoor space, this home features radiant floor heating, a multi-zoned electric snowmelt system, and a Savant smart home system for seamless control of lighting, music, temperature, and security.

The English Basement level boasts 9-foot-high ceilings and abundant natural light. A separate entrance leads to a versatile guest room or home office with a full bathroom. The custom kitchen includes Italian Arclinea cabinetry, Calacatta Borghini marble countertops, and top-of-the-line Sub Zero and Miele appliances. A striking double-height black steel window wall overlooks the south-facing garden, which connects to the main entertaining spaces via a secondary open stair. The garden features a full outdoor kitchenette, natural gas barbecue, and planter beds.

The Parlor level combines classic and contemporary elements with a marble foyer, oak floors, a sweeping curved stair bathed in natural light, and a statuary marble mantle over a gas fireplace in the living room. The dining area features a Poliform serving console, a dry bar with a stone slab, and a beverage center, framed by a double-height window wall offering landscaped views.

The third-floor primary level exudes luxury and privacy, with a spacious south-facing bedroom featuring large steel casement windows and French doors opening to an expansive terrace. A Poliform dressing closet connects to a Bianco Dolomiti marble bathroom with a soaking tub, steam shower, and double vanity. The fourth floor houses three spacious bedrooms with ample natural light and skylights, leading to a rooftop deck with ipe wood fencing and an outdoor kitchenette with refrigerator and ice maker.

The owner enhanced the cellar with nearly 14-foot tall ceilings by underpinning and excavating the backyard. A walkable skylight floods the space with natural light. The cellar features a custom 700-bottle wine room, a separate room, bathroom, laundry area, storage closets, and new mechanical systems, making it ideal for a home theater, gym, or potential guest suite.

246 West 12th Street is in one of the world's most sought-after residential enclaves. Celebrated fine dining and historic watering holes are nearby, and the Hudson River Park, High Line, and Whitney Museum are within steps of this stunning West Village home.
