...Introducing 20 Jones St, a bucolic haven that seamlessly blends the rich tapestry of history with modernity in the cherished West Village. This four-story, 21-foot wide Greek Revival brick townhouse dates back to 1844 and has been recently converted back to its original single-family use.

Renovations in recent years have wonderfully transformed this home, resulting in functional spaces that offer modern living while still capturing the home's timeless charm and provenance. The house boasts multiple fireplaces on every floor, carefully preserved to include a mix of wood-burning, gas-burning, and decorative options.

Flooded by natural light, the open floor plan on the parlor floor harmoniously connects the living and dining areas. Flanking the living areas are two fireplaces, one wood-burning and the other decorative. The gourmet kitchen, featuring clean and fresh millwork, a rustic concrete island, and high-end appliances, pays homage to the neighborhood's artistic legacy. Adjacent to the kitchen, a wine room and a windowed powder room with its own decorative fireplace add to the home's allure.

The garden level, originally a separate garden apartment, has been transformed into a spacious entertaining area. It boasts two fireplaces with brick surrounds - one wood-burning and the other decorative. Adding to its charm, there is an extra bedroom with a full bathroom and large sliding barn doors that exude a rustic ambiance. Accessible through elegant French doors, the rear garden is lined with bluestone pavers and features a plumbed gas grill. Additionally, the garden can be accessed from the parlor floor.

On the third floor, there are two large bedrooms and a stunning primary five-fixture bathroom suite ensconced in marble. This luxurious suite boasts double sinks, radiant floor heating, a deep soaking tub, and a glass-enclosed steam shower.

The fourth floor, currently used as a full-floor primary bedroom, features high-vaulted ceilings and two large skylights, creating a tranquil retreat complete with a private terrace and scenic views of the vibrant West Village. Architectural plans are available for an expansive primary bathroom and large closets.

This beautifully restored home effortlessly combines historical charm with modern comforts. The original brick facade, complemented by brownstone accents, exudes timeless appeal. The stoop, once removed, has been thoughtfully replaced, restoring the home's authentic character. Inside, central heat and air-conditioning ensure year-round comfort, while updated plumbing, wiring, and beautiful hardwood floors enhance the interior. Additionally, the home is equipped with a central alarm system.

This charming home on Jones Street has a truly captivating history as it has seen a multitude of transformations over the years. From serving as a boarding house to providing low-income housing, this property has played a vital role in the community.

In 1927, it housed the Crafts Building, where pottery making, metalwork, and cabinetmaking thrived. A tea room was also added, not only serving meals but also imparting valuable life skills to young girls. The property later became the Artists and Writers Kitchen, supporting struggling artists through art sales. Notably, it has been associated with prominent figures such as Kirk Douglas and singer-songwriter Steve Earle.

Additionally, Jones Street was the backdrop for the iconic album cover "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" immortalizing this street in music history. The West Village, with its cobblestone streets and picturesque brownstones, has preserved the ambiance that captivated Dylan and many others during that transformative time.

Today, the dynamic and trendy West Village is renowned for its vibrant array of shops, restaurants, and transportation options. From chic boutiques to cozy cafes, this neighborhood offers a diverse mix of establishments to explore. With convenient access to public transportation, including subway lines and bus routes, navigating the city is a breeze.
