In Contract This exquisite Greenwich Village condominium in a converted 1871 landmark townhouse is a unique gem with grand space and stunning craftsmanship. Soaring 12-foot ceilings awe you as you enter the parlor level, where split living rooms (a library with a fireplace and a den) encircle a wrapping staircase. The home's main focal point is the amazing 20-foot-tall 2-tiered gas fireplace with a dramatic modernist lighting installation by Omer Arbel for Bocci. Richly-stained solid 5" oak floors, which continue beyond the living space throughout the rest of the home, are complemented by an abundance of creative architecture, from clerestory skylights to a custom wood entertainment center. The open, inviting chef's kitchen is trimmed with apothecary cabinetry, marble work surfaces, and a cast-iron professional AGA range. Currently set-up as a two bedroom, each current bedroom boasts en-suite bathrooms adorned with hand-inlaid marble flooring, custom oak vanities, and fittings by Duravit. The master bedroom has a double sink. The gracious lower level serves as a fully-customized entertainment space, complete with a professionally-designed media center and bar. Also housed here is a potential wine storage area set within brick archways dating to 1871, a full laundry room with a washer and dryer, and a large storage room. Central heating and air conditioning and a state-of-the-art security system ensure ultimate comfort and protection. On record with the National Architectural Trust, The Parsonage Condominium is an intimate four-unit restoration of a Greenwich Village landmark with a cyber-doorman system and private lobby vestibule storage. The prime location on prized West 4th Street is just a half block from Washington Square Park, and minutes to abundant area transportation, shops, eateries and other attractions.
