Perfectly situated on a highly desirable block in the heart of the West Village and delivered vacant, 27 Bank Street is a rare opportunity for those looking to create a single-family home of superb elegance and distinction. At 22 feet wide with an intact stoop and many original historic details, the house draws in wonderful light from both open southern and northern exposures and through extra-tall and oversized windows. Built in 1856, this magnificent 5-story Italianate-style townhouse is on one of the finest tree-lined West Village blocks and part of row of elegant houses built in 1856 by Linus Scudder, a mason-builder long identified with the development of the Village. The house has a historic and prestigious provenance, long identified as the house Scudder built for himself and been owned by notable personalities.
Grand in scale and flexible in layout, the magnificent home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, seven working fireplaces and a beautiful, 36' private garden. The elegance of the parlor floor is immediately imagined with its 31-foot living room and 12' soaring ceilings. Original old-world details include the original staircase, ornate ceiling moldings, wide plank oak floors and a marble fireplace mantle. Additionally, this floor presents a formal dining room and renovated kitchen with sunroom and full bath. The second and third floors each have two bedrooms with two original marble fireplaces, excellent closet storage, a full bathroom and an office, nursery or den on each floor. There is also a laundry room on the third floor.
The top floor houses a renovated studio with soaring ceilings, a wall of windows, dramatic skylight and a roof deck. This floor can easily serve as a guest floor with a flexible layout that includes a full bathroom and kitchenette. The garden floor is currently configured with a 27' living / dining room, kitchen, sunroom, bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, and a beautiful and lush, 36' private garden.
Elegance and grandeur define this rare opportunity in one of the best locations in the city. 27 Bank Street is superbly positioned in the very heart of the picturesque and highly desirable West Village between West 4th Street and Waverly. This is a particularly beautiful tree-lined townhouse block among a row of elegant Italianate 19th century houses built by the same architect. The neighborhood is filled with great restaurants, boutique stores, markets and is close to all ways of transportation.
