Maisonette Splendor off Lower Fifth – 32 West 9th Street

By Linecity, December 18, 2019

The maisonette apartment at 32 West 9th Street offers two full floors of delightful open space linked by a fanciful winding staircase with decorative ironwork. 

This two bed, two bath duplex, measuring out at 1734 square feet, offers a private street level entrance and a large shared garden to the rear of the residence. The first floor is comprised of a renovated open kitchen, a large dining area and a bedroom with direct access to the garden.  But the focal point of the entry floor is the grand spiral staircase.

Character abounds on the upper level of the home, the original parlor floor of this pre-war townhouse.  The showcase is the opulent wall of street-facing casement windows. So striking, these windows are even landmarked.  Other alluring features include 14-foot coffered ceilings, an original decorative fireplace, new strip hardwood flooring, wainscoting, a wall of built-in bookcases with detailing that match the front windows and of course the continuation of the staircase.

This two-building condominium (30-32 West 9th Street) is superbly located in the heart of Greenwich Village just off the Gold Coast of lower Fifth Avenue and two blocks north of Washington Square Park.  The adjoining townhouses were built mid-19th century and converted to condo ownership in 2002. There are 18 apartments in total between the two buildings, just five residences at 32 West 9th Street.

Additional features include central AC, a newly installed washer/dryer and two private storage bins.  And if you never want to leave this special residence, live/work is also possible.  

The ask for this splendid home is $3,120,000, about $1800 per square foot.

The property is being represented by the Eklund-Gomes Team at Douglas Elliman.  View full details on
