Townhouse On West 10th Street

ARCHITECTURE

In this 19th-century West Village brownstone, a triplex apartment was extensively renovated and refurbished. On the second floor, the 1912 oak-paneled library was reconfigured to create a media room that leads to a new master suite. Downstairs, an original mosaic-floored reception hall was refashioned as a dining room adjacent to the main parlor looking out over the courtyard. The former basement was lowered to create a combined kitchen and breakfast area with French doors opening onto a new garden with mahogany paneled fencing and a bluestone terrace. A thirty foot tall mature London Plane tree was hoisted by crane over the townhouse to create shade and privacy for the residence.
