New York apartments come with all kinds of amenities, but it's not every day that you see one with its own treehouse! Nestled in the city's West Village, this lovely townhouse recently became available on the market and offers the perfect melding of city living with an escape to nature right in the back yard. Buyers attracted to the charm of this local jewel should expect to pay a pretty penny for a home with a bit of green real estate attached. The listing price for this treasure we discovered via Curbed NY is a whopping $5,995,000, but click through the gallery to take your own (free) tour.
The rooms in this elegant dwelling offer 10’9″ ceilings and include a grand living room and parlor for entertaining. The home also boasts an original 1838 wood burning fireplace (there are also two others) for keeping cozy during cold New York nights.
The featured grandfathered treehouse rests above a gardening shed and was landscaped and designed by Edwina vonGal, an East Hampton, New York-based designer who has brilliantly landscaped the gardens of the affluent and currently teaches environmental stewardship in Panama. The private backyard offers an intelligent escape for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining in the heart of the city.
Some of the other amenities include marble baths and a chef’s kitchen, adding to the appeal of this elegantly designed oasis in one of Manhattan’s prettiest neighborhoods.
