The floorplan is tiny and the staging furniture is sort of white and bland, but nonetheless, it's an intriguing little house—and who would ever deny the cache that comes with a doorway that opens onto a secret courtyard? The very secret courtyard, in fact, that Village legend Chumley's, a historic bar where literary greats imbibed, once had a back entrance.
