An extraordinary opportunity to call a historical Greenwich Village townhome your own! Whether maintained as an income-generating investment or returned to its mansion-origins as a massive single-family home, 179 Sullivan Street makes its stately presence felt with both historical charm and contemporary design, an unparalleled opportunity for you to craft your bespoke townhome!

This rare and beautifully restored Greek Revival facade with Italianate elements sits perched on an iconic tree-lined street; its 8,049 interior square foot on a 25' x 100' lot (built out to 25' x 92') is currently comprised of five residential floor-through apartments with multiple outdoor spaces, a medical office suite on the garden level and a cellar.

Ascending the grand steps and passing through an entry alcove, one is welcomed by an awe-inspiring foyer with original architectural features particular to the parlor floor. Lofty ceilings reach 13 feet high, and a graceful, curved staircase greets you with an air of elegance and grandeur.

Currently configured as a front studio (1F) and a rear loft (1R), this level has a combined 1,720 square feet. The front studio occupies the original parlor, with towering ceilings, antique archway, and landmarked 6/6 paned front windows. In the rear, a gigantic one-bedroom artist's loft, with custom Ipe wood mezzanine, a chef's kitchen, Jacuzzi and walk-in, glass-tiled double shower conclude with an outdoor deck (17 x 25). Floors #2-4 are fully renovated floor-thru apartments with designer kitchens, expansive bathrooms, wide planked wood floors, and A/C. Unit #2 has a colossal outdoor deck (25' x 25') and two decorative fireplaces. Similarly, Unit #3 is a floor-thru one bedroom with modern appliances, amazing light, and decorative fireplaces. The final residential unit, #4, is a two-bedroom floor-thru with a marble countered kitchen, double length living room, and a skylight.

All five units are impeccably maintained and offer amazing views of the landmarked MacDougal-Sullivan Garden Mews, a string of iconically colored row houses. The Garden Level is currently utilized as medical offices and encompasses approximately 2,400 square feet, and laundry facilities for 1F and 2. The finished cellar, with an additional 1,250 square feet, houses the building mechanicals and ample storage. All residential units can be
delivered vacant.

Originally built in 1835, 179 Sullivan Street is vested with rich history and deep roots of community service and philanthropy, once serving as The Helen Gould Neighborhood House, whose namesake (the wife of the famous Titan of Industry Jay Gould) was deeply committed to contributing to the community, and for more than 50 years in recent times, as headquarters for the Washington Square War Veterans. More recently, 179 Sullivan Street has been home to many illustrious personalities from the realms of finance and art, including Steven Conrad, Mischa Barton, and James Gondolfini.

Situated amidst Sullivan Street's tree-lined sidewalks, a blend of old-world charm, modern sophistication, and vibrant culture perfectly embody the essence of New York City, defining the history and community spirit of what Sullivan Street is today. Located in the heart of Greenwich Village and facing the MacDougal-Sullivan Mews which represent an historic anchor for this special community, 179 Sullivan Street lays witness to the artistic movement of the 1880's which personifies the West Village. Just two blocks from Washington Square Park, 179 Sullivan Street is surrounded by some of the city's best dining, shopping, culture, and nightlife. Transportation is highly accessible, with the A/B/C/D/E/F/M, 1 and 6 trains all just moments away. Bordering SoHo, NoHo, and the West Village, this location is unbeatable, making this unique acquisition an opportunity not to be missed.
