One of the most architecturally distinct and vastly unique townhouses in Greenwich Village. The townhouse comes with a carriage house that has been adjoined to it by a grand solarium. At 25’ wide and approximately 2,813 square feet, this 1930 townhouse is located at the junction of Minetta Street and Minetta Lane between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street just 2 blocks south of Washington Square Park. The façade, of Greek Revival architecture, is stucco decorated with ivy pouring from each window making 16 Minetta truly unique. Upon entering the three level front house through the arched gated doorway, you will find yourself in a large living room with a concrete staircase leading up to the second floor. The second floor boasts a triple height pitched ceiling reaching as high as 24’. The lower level has an exposed stone living space, a full bathroom, the mechanical room and storage. There is a two and a half story carriage house in the rear of the property. The house may benefit from additional air rights giving it potential to add additional footage. There is a proposal in place for a new South Village Historic District that would encompass this location. Although the property requires renovations, it would be of great interest to someone looking for a truly unique home with open air qualities, loft like space and an outdoor living experience.
