13 Gay,between Waverly Place and Christopher,is a charming 1844 Greek Revival period townhouse on the most picturesque lane-like street in the Village. East West exposures fill the house with light and 19th century views are a visual step back in time. A historic landmark in more than one sense,this was home to Civil Rights Activist attorneys William Kunstler and Margaret Ratner Kunstler,champions of every major civil rights and radical activist cause from the 60's onward. A separate under stoop entrance led to their law office. Presently occupied as a single family home,there are 8 rooms on 4 floors,with 3 full baths and one half bath,an open parlor and kitchen,4 bedrooms on the upper floors and a garden level floor with 2 live/workspaces with commercial zoning,or possible use as additional bedroom space. Floor to ceiling glass doors in the kitchen open to a patio with stairs to a delightful bluestone-paved garden. A Viking range is tucked into the original hearth. There is a little sitting porch that opens from the second level staircase landing that overlooks the garden. Original 19th century details include a brick and brownstone facade,front door and surround,ironwork,staircase,wide board floors on 3 floors,and 6 fireplaces,one wood-burning. The house is approximately 2660 sf,not including the full cellar where mechanicals are housed. It is 19 x 35 on a 65 lot. Annual taxes are $28,722. There is a tenant of 4 years in place until the end of July,and the house will be delivered vacant thereafter. Showings will be by appointment with advance notice.
