Description

Timelessly anchoring one of the most coveted blocks in the West Village, 53 Jane Street is an elegant townhouse built in 1846, with many of the original hallmarks of its Greek Revival style maintained alongside a host of modern updates. Currently configured as a 2 family home with an owners triplex and a 1 bedroom garden apartment- the house also translates flawlessly to a single family home.

Ascend the stoop and enter into the formal parlor floor, where you will encounter ten-foot ceilings, dramatic dark wood floors, traditional crown moldings, a wood-burning fireplace, and windows facing South onto Jane Street. On this level you have a living room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen with built in banquette, a laundry room, and a balcony overlooking the garden. Last but not least, there is a renovated powder room (with gold venetian plaster walls) on this level which is unusual for the period, and a wonderfully useful addition to the entertaining space. Another testament to original elegance enhanced by modern upgrades.

Follow the sunlight shining down from the glowing skylight, and climb to the second floor where there are 2 bedrooms, both the full 19 foot width of the house, including the master suite overlooking the back garden with a huge walk in closet and bathroom. The second massive bedroom has its own fireplace and looks over the other lovely houses on Jane Street.

Even brighter still, the third floor may be the most charming of all due to the clawfoot bathtub and large deck off one of the two bedrooms on this level. And landmark approved plans to add a roof deck already exist should you care to keep climbing!

The charming garden, accessible both from a balcony off the parlor floor and from the garden, is a generous 22 feet deep with a wonderful mature tree that creates the feel of an outdoor oasis come Spring. The perfect entertaining space in the hottest neighborhood.

On the garden level is a 1 bedroom apartment with its own private entrance under the stoop, perfect for generating income in a prime location. If converting this special house to a single family, this could become the everyday entertaining hangout space (many prefer the kitchen on the garden level), lending the parlor floor to be repurposed for formal entertaining.

With pristine proximity to the treasured West Village’s most coveted dining, shopping, green spaces, and cultural destinations, life here within these instagramable tree-lined blocks is both chic and fun. There is also a wonderful history that come with a 170 year old house for those who care to enjoy it. The fellow who built the house was George Schott, a wealthy tobacco merchant who was a bit eccentric and listed his profession simply as “gentleman” in an 1855 census. May the next owner be just as fabulous as the first.
