Manhattan Townhouse Wants so Badly to be on a Farm Upstate

New, 1 comment

Built in 1825, this five-story townhouse near lower Manhattan's seaport has enough period flourishes to make any 19th-century sailor (or, you know, Restoration Hardware fan) swoon. It was recently gut-renovated, and now features quite the collection of reclaimed materials from other atmospheric old buildings; as Curbed New York writes, it includes "floorboards and ceiling beams salvaged from an 18th-century barn in upstate New York;" a soapstone double sink from a farmhouse; doors from an English country abode; an ebony apothecary cabinet; an antique marble sink; and, yes, a "freestanding six-foot porcelain soaking tub that belonged to the headmistress of a private girl's school in California." It's all going for $5.995M.
