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.
Living in West Village
The West Village sprawls westward from Greenwich Village, bordered by Chelsea to its north. This historic district features elegant pre-war brownstones, cobblestones and tree-lined alleyways. Its ramshackle streets wind their way in a somewhat quirky layout that’s a pleasure to explore; you may even find yourself at the corner of Waverly Place and Waverly Place. With cozy bookstores, outdoor cafés and eccentric antique shops lining the twisting alleyways, you’re forgiven for thinking you’ve wandered into a forgotten corner of Paris. The neighborhood also includes the chic Meatpacking District enclave along the river, with its famed nightlife and luxury hotels. Residents enjoy close proximity to nearly all major subway lines in neighboring Greenwich Village and Union Square.
