33 Charlton St - West Village - Meatpacking District, New York
A TOWNHOUSE OF UNPRECEDENTED PERFECTION
At the heart of the Charlton-King-Vandam historic district, among the richest collection of Federalist and Greek Revival architecture in the US, This property was originally part of Richmond Hill, a 26-acre estate that was home to pivotal American figures including George Washington, John and Abigail Adams and Aaron Burr before it was purchased and re-developed by legendary fur trader and real estate baron John Jacob Astor in the early 1800's.
Located steps from Soho and just south of Greenwich Village, on one of Manhattans most picturesque and discrete blocks, this superb house has been completely re-built to encompass all the charm of yesteryear with all the modern conveniences to-day's world demands. Behind the immaculate brick facade and inviting stairway porch entry, lies a sophisticated blend of outstanding proportions and the finest materials, painstakingly installed to exacting standards. Light fills this house with a splendid skylight that radiates through the central stairway. Enormous windows face north over the prettiest garden row anywhere in the City.
