Historic 25' Greenwich Village Mansion
280 West 11th Street is an elegant 25.67 foot wide Federal townhome located on beautiful West 11th Street between West 4th Street and Bleecker Street. This six story home is now vacant and waiting for your creativity and imagination to create a grand mansion overlooking a massive garden.
Originally built as of one of nine houses in 1818 for clothing merchant Aaron Henry, the home was redesigned by Emilio Levy in 1929 for C. Rosenthal and famed artist, pacifist, and feminist Anita Parkhurst Wilcox. With nearly 8,000 square feet of living space, eight wood burning fireplaces, and being part of an exclusive private garden club, this home presents a very rare opportunity in the West Village.
280 West 11th is part of Bleecker Gardens, a private interior garden exclusively enjoyed by the 13 immediate contiguous neighbors and accessed by the three glass French doors on the first level of the home. Built in 1929 and landscaped by Wilcox throughout the 1930's, it includes a seasonal water feature, numerous flower beds, and grand mature trees providing quiet shaded areas to enjoy.
Just moments from some of the best restaurants, quaint cafes, boutiques, and parks, 280 West 11th is perfectly situated on a tree lined street providing the quintessential West Village experience.
