9 St Lukes Pl - Greenwich Village, New York
Glorious grand scale single family townhouse with beautiful light, grand rooms, ravishing original detail and a large verdant garden. This 21-foot-wide house offers everything one hopes for in Greenwich Village. The location is superb on the longest row of Anglo-Italianate houses in New York. Built in the 1850's when very elegant high stoops were the fashion, the house has beautifully and generously scaled rooms on every floor. The gracious Parlor floor has an extensive triple-parlor which opens onto a large and lush garden, nestled with other beautiful gardens to form an extremely rare oasis. There are 4-5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and 8 beautiful marble mantles.
The house has been in the same family for 50 years and has been lovingly and intelligently maintained. It was the home of the esteemed playwright, screen writer and producer Arthur Laurents, who was best known for Gypsy, West Side Story, and The Way We Were.
"Looking onto this tree-lined street, our senses revel in the peace and beauty of this block-long row of Italianate town houses. Their handsome ironwork, with wreath motif, blends with the vines and trees. This row of fifteen houses with high stoops offers a special delight, for the changes of time are few, and they still bask in sunlight and a spacious outlook.This pleasant street is one of the most delightful in Greenwich Village. Located opposite James J. Walker Park in honor of the former Mayor of New York, who lived at No. 6 St. Luke's Place. To walk this street is as delightful and unexpected a step into the past as to walk up Cheyne Row in London."
