Townhouse with Lush Garden Enjoyed Unpretentious Preservation

New, 2 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: New York, N.Y.
Price: $8,800,000
The Skinny: Located on the border between NYC's downtown neighborhoods of SoHo and the West Village, the townhouse at 19 Charlton Street has been well kept by the same family for 50 years, which has resulted in an extraordinarily well-preserved property. No midcentury missteps here, just fabulous historical details and a garden worth gawking at. Lush and unkempt, with uneven pavers and untended plantings, the garden hasn't received the sort of over-thought whitewashing common to $8.8M properties. While the garden furniture needs an upgrade, the backyard would make a perfect rustic and casual escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the Big Apple.
