** Quintessential, tree-lined, cobblestoned West Village block ** Owned by the same family for generations, 81 Jane Street is available for sale for the first time in nearly 75 years. This historic 20.75' wide townhouse is located in the heart of the West Village Historic District, on a beautiful tree-lined street with Belgian Block pavers – one of only a few such streets left in New York City. 81 Jane sits at one end of a noteworthy row of six Greek Revival townhomes developed by Peter Van Antwerp in 1846/1847. Over the years, the house has received many interesting visitors – Julia Child, James Beard, Amy Schumer, and Annie Leibovitz, just to name a few! ________________________________________ FEATURES: Adjoined by picturesque townhomes on both sides, this four-story home plus a basement is set on a lot over 87 feet deep with a large, terraced garden and roof balcony. The interior space is approximately 4,582 square feet (1397 m) and the exterior (private garden and top floor terrace) is over 900 square feet (274 m). The house has retained many original details throughout including the wide-plank pine floors on every level, pocket doors and beautiful dentil moldings on the parlor floor, six decorative fireplaces throughout, and the wrought-iron Greek Revival hand railings with elaborate castings. The parlor floor welcomes you with 10'3” ceilings which add to the sense of space, light, and openness. With three large windows framing both sides of each floor facing NW and SE, and two skylights, the house is full of light all day long. ________________________________________ LAYOUT: Originally built as a single-family home, the current structure consists of an owner's duplex and two market-rate floor-through 1-to-2-bedroom apartments above. The house can be delivered vacant if desired. As currently configured, the house has six bedrooms and four full baths, but can easily be transformed back into a perfect single-family home or configured in a myriad of different ways. The current owner's floor-thru duplex sits on the Parlor and Garden Floors. Apartment #2 has consistently fetched high market rent and is currently vacant. This unit is a large floor-thru 1- bedroom. Apartment #3 is a 2-bedroom floor-thru with a private terrace and a lovely skylight over the kitchen. The current tenant's lease will be ending in July 2022. ________________________________________ NEIGHBORHOOD: The West Village is one of Manhattan's most sought-after neighborhoods, and this section of Jane Street is the perfect setting nestled in a residential neighborhood, close to all methods of public transportation, and surrounded by world-renowned dining, small cafes, boutiques, and high-end shops, just a few blocks from the Whitney Museum, Hudson River Park, The High Line, New York City's newest park, Little Island, the Meatpacking District, and Greenwich Village. The Hudson River promenade offers over six miles of outdoor recreation which includes running paths, cycling, tennis, basketball, and kayaking. Fresh and local produce is available from the farmer's market at Abington and Union Square Parks.
