Located on a quaint, tree lined block of Greenwich Village, 39 Charlton Street is a truly special offering. Built in 1827, this is a 25-foot-wide grand scaled Federal style home of epic proportions with a 49-foot-long garden. Commended by the Landmarks Preservation Commission as one of the most well-preserved examples of neoclassical architecture, every aspect of this home has been delicately maintained to its original splendid grandeur.

On the Parlor floor, a sweeping foyer makes a profound first
... impression, boasting 12’ ceilings and original plaster moldings. Front and rear parlors on this level serve as optimal entertaining spaces, each with elements of old world glamour that are a testament to the time period in which the home was constructed. Yet, it is easy to imagine modern elements being added to bring this home graciously into the 21st century. Original details such as floor to ceilings windows, wood burning fireplaces with opulent marble mantles, plaster moldings and built in bookshelves. Light streams in a sunny eat-in kitchen through a bay window, and attached patio overlooks the home’s large, enchanting private garden, with peonies and roses abound.

The third and fourth floors of 39 Charlton Street are home to five grand scale bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each of the bedrooms retains exceptional period details and beautiful, original hardwood floors. All are filled with an abundance of natural light, and three of these bedrooms have wood burning fireplaces. Both floors present a balance of private and common living spaces, the third floor has a separate roof terrace, optimal for outdoor seating, and the fourth floor has a second living room. Either could easily be reimagined as a designated master floor.

The garden level is an idyllic harmony of indoor and outdoor townhouse living with exposed white beams and an additional fireplace. Two sets of French doors open to an expansive garden-- a private sanctuary in your own backyard. A brick patio provides room for outdoor separate seating in this bucolic setting. This floor is accessible by separate entrance if desired, and features three spacious bedrooms, and one and a half baths.

A rich history lies behind this charming row of red brick townhouses developed between 1820 and 1829. In the late 1700s, the area was known as Richmond Hill and a great Georgian mansion built for Major Mortier was erected on a hill over 400 feet high. Many prominent United States historical figures used the Richmond Hill mansion. This included George Washington as headquarters during the Revolution and Aaron Burr as a personal residence for lavish entertaining. Ultimately John Jacob Astor took control over the mansion which was moved, and planned the development over the land. Because the development of such a large area was controlled by one party, it is nearly impossible to find such an excellent state of continuity of period and preservation as these Federal and Greek Revival houses. It was here that the simultaneous construction of these townhouses began, each built to the same precise standards.
