This 22-foot-wide and wonderful Federal townhouse offers a superb location on one of the most treasured blocks in the West Village. The house, built in 1832, is filled with generously scaled rooms on every floor. The gracious and welcoming parlor floor includes an extensive double-sized living room and a welcoming kitchen with a full bay window offering views of a large lush garden with mature magnolia tree. There are 5-6 bedrooms and 4 baths. In addition, there is original detail throughout the house, including, fireplaces with original marble mantles, lovely plaster moldings and ceiling medallions. This home has been in the same family for many years. While it has been lovingly and intelligently maintained, significant renovation will be likely.

This attractive late Federal house is the second oldest building on the block. It was erected in 1831 for William G. Haycock, a notary public. Built of brick laid in Flemish bond, it was probably originally two and one-half stories in height; a third story was then added later in the century, together with a bracketed roof cornice and cornices over the lintels of the windows. A pedimented doorway with dentils and Neo-Grec brackets is a still later addition. The shutters, attractive replacements of the originals, are modern. The graceful stoop hand railing, Federal in design, has wrought iron curvilinear designs at the top and small knob-like finials and foot-scraper at the bottom.
