There are few places quite as charming as New York City's Greenwich Village. From the stunning architecture, cobblestone streets, artistic community, and beyond, the reasons for why this neighborhood is the ideal dream home location seem infinite.

A prime example of all that Greenwich Village has to offer, 179 Sullivan Street is the ideal combination of impeccable design, highly-coveted historic roots, and a location that is tough to beat.

The townhome’s facade emulates the Greek Revival style, with Italianate detailing that stands out along the beautifully tree-lined street it sits on. Within this gorgeously restored home, you’ll find five full-floor apartments, several outdoor spaces, a cellar, and much more.

Whether you plan to maintain the property’s full-floor apartments to be rented out or returning the home to its origins in its entirety, 179 Sullivan Street is truly a historic gem that cannot be passed up.

The beauty of 179 Sullivan Street does not stop at the front door, but is carried throughout the entire home. Upon entering, you are greeted by a stately entryway with original architectural detailing. The property boasts 15 rooms, with 7 spacious bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.

Some of the additional and highly-coveted details of the townhome include its high ceilings that soar 13 feet overhead and its original curved staircase that calls back to its roots.

Built in 1835, 179 Sullivan Street boasts a rich history and a deep commitment to community service, once serving as The Helen Gould Neighborhood House. In addition, it had previously been the headquarters for the Washington Square War Veterans.

All five of the units have views of the MacDougal-Sullivan Garden Mews, this landmarked string of iconic row houses. 

179 Sullivan Street has notably been home to famous figures of finance and the arts, which includes Steven Conrad, Mischa Barton, and James Gondolfini.

Aside from the home's exterior and interior beauty, its location amidst Sullivan Street's vibrancy is a perfect example of the charm that New York City offers, and is a mere two blocks from Washington Square Park.

With easy access to some of Manhattan's finest restaurants, most charming shops, and iconic cultural hot spots, it is easy to see why this townhouse is the perfect place to reside.
