Property Details for 280 W 4th St


This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from March 29, 2014
280 West 4th Street is a 21' wide, five-story Greek revival style brick townhouse built circa 1841. Nestled within one of the most desirable blocks in the West Village, it is currently configured as a four-unit house with 3 separate one-bedroom floor-through apartments and its crown jewel, a spacious triplex with artist's studio and two terraces. It was once home to Charles Webster Hawthorne, mentor to Norman Rockwell and one of America's most dynamic and forthright portrait painters and teachers of art. Hawthorne purchased the house in 1919 and added an art studio to the back. He occup...ied the house as his main residence during the height of the Impressionist movement in the U.S. Each of the floor-through one bedroom apartments has been fully renovated and offers spacious living rooms with fireplaces, large bedrooms and generous storage space. The garden and parlor floor units also feature private outdoor space. The triplex is currently set up as a one bedroom, 2 bath unit with a large den and top floor artist's studio. It could easily be converted into a 2 bedroom apartment featuring a full floor master suite. Additional features include custom built-ins, wood-burning fireplace, terrace and finished roof deck. This house is perfect as is for an income-generating property or for conversion into a stunning single-family home. The property will be delivered vacant.
