Historic Greenwich Village cottage asks for $7.5m

This double fronted Manhattan property is a throwback to Golden Age Greenwich Village, complete with a country cottage exterior.

Located at 183 and 185 West 4th Street, the cosy cottage dates from 1897 and is for sale at $7.5m via Debbie Korb of Sotheby’s International Realty. It was once home to feted industrialist Armand Hammer in the 1920s and has been sensitively renovated by practice Fairfax & Sammons, who has given its surprisingly large interior spaces a grand treatment in keeping with the house’s pedigree.

The highlight is the double-height reception at the centre of the Greenwich Village property, complete with an oversized stone fireplace, beamed ceilings and whitewashed-wainscotting.

Colour is also used cleverly as part of its refurb, with monochrome shades of Georgian blue, pastel yellow in the farmhouse kitchen and a deep navy in the breakfast bar area forming a peaceful base for mouldings and more maximally patterned furniture.

Two bedrooms are located upstairs and there’s a whimsical ‘secret garden’ at the rear of the property, with red brick paving and potted plants. Take a closer look
