See inside a 200-year-old converted wagon shed in New York

It’s one of a kind

History oozes from every pore of this red brick home in New York’s West Village, once used as a factory and wagon shed and now a double-wide townhouse.

The Manhattan property, which is listed with DouglasElliman for $4.5m, is on the market for the first time in two decades and has an impressive list of architectural and historic awards to its name. It was converted into a home in the 1920s, with its 34-foot-wide footprint the result of two houses being sandwiched together.

The interiors are very much a blank canvas, with wooden floors and white walls running throughout. Existing furniture – though not the artworks – can be included with the purchase, if buyers are keen to move in turnkey. Rooms retain their original wooden beams, which are now enjoyably weathered, and there’s also a wood-burning fireplace in two of the living spaces.

As well as a short walk to the West 4th Street subway station, owners will have access to a shared garden behind the home.
