Historic Washington Square West townhouse lists after 17 years, asks $2.7M

It’s on Portico Row

One of the last-remaining single-family townhomes on a historic street in Washington Square West has hit the market for the first time in 17 years to the tune of $2.7 million.

The stunning Greek Revival home is registered historic and was one of the 16 homes on Portico Row designed by architect Thomas Ustick Walter in 1832. The street was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.

The home's original architectural details have remained well intact, from the ornate plaster and crown molding in the main living room to the mahogany stair banisters. The large archways leading from one room to the next are gorgeous, too.

Aside from the stunning details, the square footage alone impresses: There’s 6,290 square feet of space with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, not to mention six working fireplaces.

There are plenty of bonus rooms, including a lovely sunroom-terrace on the second floor that looks over a back patio, plus a two-car garage. Perhaps on the only simple room in the home is the first-floor kitchen, which is next to the original butler’s pantry.

The last time this home was on the market was in 1999, when it sold for $580,000.
