Situated in the original Greenwich Village Historic District on one of the West Village's most desirable tree-lined, cobblestone streets and facing the lush gardens of St. Luke's Church, 95 Barrow Street boasts a view of bucolic serenity from every window.
Recently renovated by a top architect and designer, this stunning 1847 single-family Greek Revival townhouse combines cherished, original details, such as wide-plank pine floors and seven working fireplaces, with luxurious modern conveniences like Nest thermostats, Sonos speakers, radiant floor heat and central air.
The bluestone sidewalk automatically heats to melt snow and ice without shoveling or chemicals. A handsome brownstone stoop with elegant original ironwork leads into a welcoming foyer and high-ceiling parlor with two gas fireplaces. Rear stairs lead down to an enchanting garden with high Ipe wood privacy walls and banquette, atmospheric lighting and beautiful plantings including a fully grown dogwood tree, all nurtured by a built-in irrigation system. All wiring, plumbing, and mechanicals throughout the house are new as of seven years ago.
The chef's kitchen includes a butcher block island, Miele dishwasher, wine refrigerator, and custom volcanic stone banquette surrounding an elevated wood-burning fireplace. The dining area seats ten. There is also a powder room on this level, as well as access to the garden and to the street, offering efficient ingress when returning home with groceries. Below this level is the finished basement with three cedar closets for year-round clothes storage.
The third floor bedrooms, each with wood-burning fireplaces and featuring clever built-ins that are both practical and pleasing to the eye, are adjacent to a beautiful renovated bathroom with custom carrara marble tub, Waterworks fixtures and radiant floor heat.
The fourth floor retains its original angled ceiling boards and beams, lending the master suite the spirit of a Parisian artist's garret. Sonos speakers are ingeniously embedded behind the floor-to-ceiling upholstered headboard. The master bath has a glass enclosed shower and, again, Waterworks fixtures and radiant floor heat.Rumored to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad, and formerly the residence of famed modern dance pioneers Murray Louis and Alwin Nikolais (1987 Kennedy Center Honor recipient), this home has exceptional bones, a palpable creative force, and lives at the intersection of rustic and chic.
