54 West 9th Street

Perfectly located at the heart of Greenwich Village\?s coveted \?Gold Coast\?, between 5th and 6th Avenues, this 5 story, Anglo-Italianate townhouse offers the opportunity to create a stunning and perfectly proportioned single family home. Currently configured as five floor-thru, market-rate apartments, this well maintained house retains impeccable original details throughout, including marble fireplaces, plaster cornices, moldings and ceiling medallions, an arched double entry door, and generous ceiling heights on the upper floors. The rare \?center hall\? configuration of the house, whereby an elegantly curved original staircase sits between, not alongside, the principal rooms, means that almost every room in the house is full-width. Thus the home feels wider and more gracious than many 20\? houses. <br></br>
The beautifully landscaped garden is accessed from both the garden level and the first (or ground) floor, allowing for many possible configurations and choices of where to locate a large eat-in chef\?s kitchen. In the classical Italian tradition of a \?piano nobile\?, the main parlor floor is actually the second, above the raised entry level, and boasts the most generously proportioned rooms and the highest ceilings, soaring to 12\? +/- , with floor to ceiling French doors opening onto a balcony with wrought-iron railings. With excellent scale, the house can easily accommodate: 4 or 5 bedrooms with baths en-suite; a grand parlor floor with 2 reception rooms (a living room and a library or formal dining room) and a dramatic sweep from the front to the rear windows of the house; a huge eat-in chef\?s kitchen; a media or family room/den; a luxuriously scaled master suite with a fabulous dressing room and an enormous master bath. All of this could be crowned by a planted and furnished roof deck with skyline and Village views to the south, west and northeast.<br></br>
17\? wide and 58\? deep on a 94\? lot, 54 West 9th Street was constructed in 1853 by Reuben R. Wood for a wealthy tobacco merchant. The Greenwich Village Historic District designation report lists the group of three Anglo-Italianate brownstones built by Wood at 54, 56 & 58 West 9th Street as \?among the finest in the district\?.
