Rarely available townhouse on a coveted block on Charles Street in the West Village. 41 Charles is a 4 story building which has an interesting history as a former speakeasy and still contains stairways up from the basement to both the street and the back garden, as well as a "hidden" door to the fire escape which has been removed. It is currently configured as an owner's triplex and 5 studio rentals. All apartments are bright as this is a south facing townhouse with views over garden in back as well as onto tree lined Charles Street in front. The private garden is truly an oasis, about 50 feet in depth, and includes among many beautiful plantings, an established Magnolia tree.The building itself has been well maintained with some careful additions of custom paneling in the common halls. Mechanicals are in top condition. The owner's triplex has 1 or 2 bedrooms and small office, 2 baths, a marble WBFP, slate and tile floors, laundry area, and lots of storage. It has a stainless kitchen open to the dining room, and a large living room with wood-burning FP and sliding glass doors to the garden.
This is a great opportunity to own in the most coveted neighborhood in Manhattan and to create the home of your dreams. An easy conversion to single family, it could also be bought as an investment property. .The building is fully occupied, but will be delivered vacant.

The West Village (the extension of Greenwich Village west of Seventh Avenue) certainly follows its own jazzy rhythms. Spend a day browsing the West Village’s bookstores, cozy cafes, and antique shops with all kinds of bric-a-brac for sale reminiscent of Paris. The apartments tend to have historic charm too, many with fireplaces and hidden gardens. Often the older buildings have been renovated, so behind many a landmark façade is a Bulthaup kitchen with a six-burner stove!
