    47-49 Charles Street

    This divine double width 34ft townhouse has the very good fortune to be ideally positioned on the corner of Charles St and West 4th St. Featuring two stoops and a classic brownstone clad facade, as well as an attached carriage house and large garden, there is no more iconic and celebrated house in the coveted environs of the West Village. Original details abound throughout and the extraordinary width of the building, coupled with the multiple exposures are pure magic.

    Access is into a large Gallery with windows that features a gorgeous and gracious staircase, and opens into a Living Room and beyond a Drawing Room. Both with wood burning fireplaces, marvelous ceiling heights and robust mouldings. Then there is the most handsome of Libraries with east and west exposures and an elegant Dining Room, both featuring burning fireplaces. The main entertaining floor also conveniently incorporates a Wet Bar and a Powder Room.

    Downstairs the fabulous eat-in Kitchen features vistas of the very pretty Garden and is complimented by a sprawling Great Room that divides into a Family Room and Breakfast Room. There is also a big Mud Room with street access and a Powder Room. And the very nice and private Guest Room its kitchenette boasts French doors onto the Garden.

    The upstairs quarters are distinguished by a simply spectacular Master Suite on the third floor. There is an absolutely huge Bedroom, a wonderful corner Sitting Room, a proper Dressing Room, a huge Bathroom, a big Terrace, four of the largest walk-in closets and two wood burning fireplaces.

    On the fourth floor there are four more Bedrooms plus three Bathrooms and endless closets, not to mention many more picturesque views and so much light.

    Then on the fifth floor there is a glorious Sun Room that is surrounded by a massive and pretty planted terrace, and is perhaps the nicest spot to either nestle or to entertain in all of the West Village.

    Without a doubt this residence is most aptly described with superlatives. It is simply the optimum combination of comfort and chic, and would be a most idyllic place to call home and the best place to have a party.
