Lavish townhouse in the heart of Greenwich Village

Some houses instantly capture your heart while others look interesting without leaving a great impression. This townhouse is extremely charming. It’s one of those properties that look like a home and that make you wish you were there to enjoy all its beauty. Located in the center of Greenwich Village in New York City, this townhouse has been recently renovated and converted.

It is now an amazing single family home. The property has been restored and converted by William Rainero, the one who grew up in this beautiful house. Originally built in 1839, the house features a classical Georgian style and this gives it a lot of character. There are lots of amazing original features that make this place unique and they have been carefully preserved and restored. The purpose of the project was not to redesign the house but to restore it to its original beauty and to make it look amazing again.

There are lots of features that stand out here. For example, the property also has a Zen garden that complements the house beautifully. As for the architecture, it’s difficult to say which details are more beautiful since they are all splendid. The exposed stone walls definitely add character to the house. The wooden floors add warmth and texture and contribute to an overall very elegant and yet very inviting and pleasant atmosphere and décor.

The house has seven floors including the mezzanine level which is a multi-functional space, a two-story living room with imposing ceilings and with access to the garden, a gourmet kitchen, a catering kitchen, a splendid collector’s wine room, a media center, several spectacular bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a master suite that occupies an entire floor, a spa, a fitness center, a billiard room and a rooftop terrace. The property is impressive both in size and in style.{found on homedsgn}.
