80 Washington Place, Greenwich Village by William Rainero
By Magaly • Jan 19, 2013 • Selected Work
This renovated and converted townhouse is located on 80 Washington Place, Greenwich Village in New York City.
The home has an air of warm elegance, thanks to its exposed brick and stone walls and wooden floors.
The house hit the market for $31.5 million in June 2012. Its price was lowered to $29.9 million earlier this month.
The listing has been removed since then.
80 Washington Place, Greenwich Village:
“Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, 80 Washington Place is an extraordinary townhome that has been lovingly restored and converted into a single-family residence by William Rainero, a passionate developer who grew up in the house. Built in 1839 in classical Georgian style, the house is 22.5 feet wide. The façade underwent painstaking restoration to return it to its original grandeur. William has personally overseen each aspect of the multi-year renovation.
80 Washington Place is an exceptional single-family townhome with a Zen garden with southern exposure, nestled steps away from New York City’s vibrant and iconic Washington Square Park. Rich history and brilliant modern architecture by the visionary Clodagh Design come together in a truly inspired collaboration. Seven generous floors include a multi-function mezzanine, a two-story living room that opens to a rare and beautiful Zen garden, a gourmet kitchen, a catering kitchen, a collector’s wine room, media center, bedrooms with gorgeous en suite bathrooms, a full-floor master with an incredible garden view, a home spa and fitness center, a billiard room, and a sprawling rooftop for lavish urban entertaining while viewing the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower.
Once home to famed American composer John Philip Sousa, 80 Washington Place features a classic Georgian façade that blends seamlessly with the neighborhood.”
