Home Facts

237 W 4 St, New York, NY 10014

This delightful 20' wide Greek revival townhouse was built in 1839 as part of a three-house row for William T. Whittemore, whose father, Samuel Whittemore, a well-to-do manufacturer of textile machines, was a big 19th century Greenwich Village developer and proprietor of an underground railroad stop. This four-story home has retained its elegant pilaster doorway, attractive stoop and graceful wrought iron railing and newels. It also still contains some lovely original details including exposed brick, wide plank floors and open spaces. Currently configured as an exclusive salon with two floor-thru apartments, the building offers the discerning shopper several options and it is being offered both for sale and/or for rent. There are myriad possibilities from the entire premises becoming a cool West Village corporate headquarters to the space being converted back to the gracious single-family home it once was. For the latter, make sure you tell your architect there is additional F. A. R. No matter what you opt to do, you will have a spectacular canvas for your creation as every floor building is flooded with light. A true West Village gem in a great location, the building sits on a substancial lot, has a lovely planted garden, a cellar and a unique shared elevator one could only find in Greenwich Village. Its true: this singular building is waiting to be discovered by you! This the whole house and/or salon is for rent; call for details.
