On a picturesque West Village block sits this charming and historic Greek Revival townhouse. Built originally in 1846, the house is adjacent to the Jane Street Garden. 42 Jane Street’s unique positioning provides 3 exposures, including an eastern view of the beautiful garden.
The handsome front facade has shutters on its parlor floor windows, while a thicket of ivy flows from the garden-facing side. At 22.5 feet wide the house has approximately 3,700 square feet of interior living space. It is currently configured with 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 2 half baths. From top to bottom this house offers every modern convenience combined with the elegance of old world townhouse living. There are 4 fireplaces, a Sonos sound system in each room, multi-zone central air, and a security system.
The top floor of the house is truly incredible and must be experienced in person to fully appreciate.

The primary bathroom has dual sinks, a free-standing soaking tub, and an expanded stall shower. There are plenty of custom closets and a guest bathroom on this floor as well.
The second floor has 2 full bathrooms and was reconfigured to accommodate 3bedrooms, but can easily be restored to the classic 2-bedroom layout that is so familiar in townhouses of this size.
The parlor floor is both charming and functional. A front sitting room with a fireplace is separated by pocket doors to reveal an elegant den.
