Description

Step back in time and imagine yourself in this jewel of a house on a lovely Greenwich Village block. One with historic significance, beauty, charm and all that you’ve imagined in the West Village, past, present and future.
The house, built in 1849 for Mr. Samuel Smith by a Mr. Aaron Patchin and was built to have ground floor storefronts with residential quarters above. The New York Times records show that in the 1960s and 70s, this row of houses (there are five) along West Tenth Street, was a prime
...Step back in time and imagine yourself in this jewel of a house on a lovely Greenwich Village block. One with historic significance, beauty, charm and all that you’ve imagined in the West Village, past, present and future.
The house, built in 1849 for Mr. Samuel Smith by a Mr. Aaron Patchin and was built to have ground floor storefronts with residential quarters above. The New York Times records show that in the 1960s and 70s, this row of houses (there are five) along West Tenth Street, was a prime shopping destination for sophisticated housewares, cultured antiques and upscale children’s wear.
Walking into the house now you’ll see a stunning display of elegant wallpaper, drapes, wonderful old sinks and a kitchen all from a bygone era. The house is three stories high and as mentioned still continues to have commercial space on the ground floor.
Described in a listing from 1974, as a “charming small townhouse - 3 story brownstone with full cellar - handsome walled garden - 6 rooms, 3 baths - centrally air conditioned - gas heat - heavy duty wiring - brass plumbing” The lot size then and now is 19.2’ x 60.
Probably the most fascinating thing about this house, is that it was the home of the illustrious chef Mr. James Beard and his cooking school. As you are well aware, Mr. Beard was not only a chef (known for his quintessential American cuisine), but a cookbook author (more than 20 overall), a teacher and a television personality. In fact, he pioneered television cooking shows, taught at his eponymous school and lectured widely. He is still honored to this day by his Foundation's annual James Beard Awards. Mr. Beard was also very dear friends with Ms. Julia Child (known for her French cuisine and subsequent cooking show). Can you only imagine the stories within these walls?
Priced at $4,950,000, this splendiferous home will be delivered vacant and while the interior is of a bygone era, it is now waiting for that next caretaker to make this treasured home into their own.
We do hope that you will attend the open house but you may also call, text or email for an appointment. We look forward to sharing more information and accounts of what went on at 119 West Tenth Street.
