Description

116 Waverly Place is an exceptionally renovated, 22-foot wide, 6-story single-family mansion, which generously affords approximately 10,200 square feet of magnificent interior living space, and nearly 2,000 square feet of outdoor space throughout the South garden, 3 terraces, and stunning roof deck with an infinity resistance swimming pool and open views of the Empire State Building and Freedom Tower.

This outstanding home features an elevator that runs to all levels, from the fully finished ground floor to the stunning roof deck. There are 7 gracious bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, total smart home technology, 15-zone central air conditioning system, 4 fireplaces, and a hand-crafted wine cellar with temperature and humidity control. Thoughtfully designed by acclaimed architect Dirk Denison, 116 Waverly Place enjoys wonderful light and proportions from the soaring double-height ceilings to the immense windows which scale the entire rear facade.

Located on a beautiful tree-lined block adjacent to Washington Square Park, this grand mansion gives immediate access to the best restaurants and entertainment the Village has to offer.

The property was originally built in 1891 and is transitional in style, with a Romanesque Revival first floor complete with ornate colored marble pillars, and the upper floors bear the simple classicism of the more contemporary Queen Anne style.

116 Waverly Place is famed for being the central gathering location for the literary elite of the mid 19th century, setting the precedent for writers' gatherings in Greenwich Village. Miss Anne Charlotte Lynch, notable American author, sculptress and socialite, resided in the home and held receptions every Saturday evening which attracted the most renowned intellectual minds of the era. Notable guests included Herman Melville, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Andrew Carnegie, Statue of Liberty creator Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, Louisa May Alcott and Daniel Webster. It is said that Edgar Allen Poe was introduced to New York literary society at one of these gatherings, and debuted his famous tale, "The Raven".

This exquisitely renovated home affords gracious ceiling heights and grand proportions making it perfect for showcasing a treasured art collection or impressive entertaining – evoking the storied history of its remarkable past.
