19th Century Country Town House

In the cobblestoned streets of Greenwich Village a writer and her family moved to this 19th-century town house with an English country vibe.

The two-story, 2500 square foot apartment came with a cottage-like kitchen and herringbone floors. Legend has it that Lauran Bacall and Humphrey Bogart once called it home.

Exterior:

A red door is always a welcoming sight in my book. It just beckons someone to come knocking.

Living Room:

The big open living room serves as a place to both work and relax. A gallery wall and shelves full of books liven up this space.

  1. Gorgeous home!
    We have the same shade red front door!
    Wanted to repaint, make it brighter. Maybe soon.
    Living room is lovely.
    I’ve always displayed lots of photos & mirrors on walls.
    Never family photos.
    Those go in family room or entrance hallway.
    Just love ❤ the outdoor spaces. Beautiful!!

  2. It’s a large home for NYC – 2500 square feet, CHA-CHING! The backyard space increases the value of that townhouse by a LOT of money. They have made it so beautiful – a real sanctuary. I’m sure the birds and squirrels are happy, too. Yard space is at a premium in NYC and any bit that people have access to in their apartments or homes most of them try to develop and use as a nature get-away. I don’t live in NYC so I don’t have access to all the wonderful museums, art galleries, and of course the shopping and Central Park, but in the mid-size city where I live nearly all the homes have front yards and back yards, unless you live in a high rise downtown. Then you may get a balcony. Don’t think I could give up gardening for a balcony!

  3. Wowsie this is a super pretty and unique brownstone. How sweet she has done all the rooms. Love the little girls room. The built ins are amazing too. Love it all. That backyard is gorgeous. I would spend my whole summer out there.
    Thanks for Sharing this pretty home with us.
