One of Greenwich Village’s oldest remaining wooden frame homes has hit the market in New York, and it’s filled with well-preserved period details.

The property dates back to 1822 and includes a three-bedroom home as well as a separate one-bedroom cottage in the backyard – which may once have been used as a shop by its original sash maker owner and builder.

Distinctive clapboard siding and wooden shutters feature on the main home, and the original details continue inside with pine floorboards, ceiling beams, and brick flooring. The Manhattan property – which is listed with Corcoran for $12m – also has a converted basement, which includes a library and recreation room. According to the estate agent, the tunnel beneath the house that once led to local speakeasy Chumley’s is still in place, although presumably no longer used.

The second house is somewhat smaller but has its own entrance on Bedford Street.
