Greenwich Village | Single-Family Opportunity | Historically Significant Brownstone | Gold Coast

28 West 10th is one of the last remaining opportunities to restore a historically significant Renwick Brownstone to its former grandeur as a single-family residence.

Designed by James Renwick Jr., one of the more prominent mid-19th-century architects, these eleven wide and elegant West 10th Street homes were built between 1856 and 1858. Renwick, known for designing numerous banks, brownstones, charity hospitals, and Gothic-style churches like Grace Church and St. Patrick's Cathedral, left his mark on New York City as well as this iconic stretch of West 10th Street.

Embraced by trees and bathed in the warm glow of amber light each evening, these homes have gracefully endured for more than 167 years, rendering this section of 10th Street truly spectacular. This is your exclusive opportunity to own an iconic piece of history in New York City and creative a truly unique and magnificent home.

Situated on West 10th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, this prime location is at the heart of Greenwich Village, commonly known as the Gold Coast. A significant portion of the neighborhood falls within a historic district, established in 1969 as Manhattan's first. The architectural charm of the area is well-preserved. The Renwick facades are landmarks and still retain the continuous wrought iron balcony adorning the parlor level across all eleven houses. The locale provides immediate access to top-notch restaurants, cafes, shops, and galleries, along with the nearby attractions of Washington Square Park and Union Square.

28 West 10th Street is an 18' wide, 6-story brownstone built in 1856 and to this day retains many of its original fireplaces, woodwork, and plaster details. It boasts entry and parlor level ceilings over 13' plus a private rear outdoor garden space.

The brownstone is situated in the middle of the eleven houses numbered 20 to 38 West 10th Street, collectively forming the historic 'Renwick Row,' also known as 'English Terrace Row.'

One of the last two remaining Renwick Houses yet to be converted back to a grand, single-family mansion, the home is currently configured as an Owners Triplex with 4 free-market rental units. Significant structural and foundational upgrades have been recently completed. Some of the neighboring houses have excavated and dug down another level to create additional new space to accommodate modern mechanicals, wine cellars, saunas, and fitness rooms - the new frontier on Greenwich Village cellars. An elevator can be installed as well as a roof terrace.
