41 Bethune St - West Village - Meatpacking District, New York


Authentic, charming and nestled on one of the best blocks in prime West Village, 41 Bethune stands as a superb example of early 19th century American New-Classical architecture, dating back to 1842. This handsome 20ft wide, three-story brick townhouse is a real gem. The owner of the last 30 years paid respect to the character of the house by embracing the original wide plank floors and keeping the three wood-burning fireplaces. When you walk through the front door, you walk through a piece of history. This home is currently configured as a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath with a beautifully designed multi-tiered outdoor private oasis.

The parlor floor has a proper entrance foyer, living room, wood burning fireplace and a windowed powder room. Perfect for entertaining, the dining room's French door leads directly to the backyard, which is lined with aged brick, lush fauna, and quaint vignettes, a perfect escape from the everyday hustle of the city.

The second floor features a large open eat-in kitchen with ample space to dine and relax by a wood burning fireplace. The south facing bedroom has an en-suite windowed bathroom.

The third floor is most impressive for its exposed beamed ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and a spacious 400 square foot master-suite bathed in natural light from not only four windows but also one skylight, with the possibility of two. The third bedroom includes a huge walk-in closet and completes this exceptional top floor.

The cellar currently houses a laundry room and two storage rooms in addition to the furnace room and offering a wealth of possibility for the future owner of this cherished townhouse. Subject to Landmarks Preservation Commission approval, the home's air rights increase the transformative options of this refined townhouse offering a unique opportunity for a buyer seeking a downtown property to make their own dream house.

Steps from the excitement of the Meatpacking District, the beauty of the High Line and the new location of the Whitney Museum, 41 Bethune Street is surrounded by urban amenities yet retains an air of civilized seclusion within the tree-lined West Village.
