    Landmark Living in the West Village 74 Bank Street is a rare jewel, nestled elegantly on one of the most tranquil side streets of Manhattan's West Village. Located in the heart of a historic neighborhood of tree-lined townhouse blocks, the five-story home features a gracious layout with abundant outdoor space and many original details. This 25-foot wide, approximately 6,000SF townhouse was erected in 1842 by noted builder Andrew Lockwood. The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission described 74 Bank Street as "exceptionally well proportioned and among the handsomest residences on the block." Architectural Digest (AD) gushed that "the Greek Revival structure is a gem" in a recent profile of the townhouse's stunning contemporary interior design and architecture by AD 100 architects Leroy Street Studio (LSS) and Christine Markatos Design. AD praised their update as ideal for "contemporary living without losing sight of the townhouse's history or compromising its character," perfectly befitting a property of this charm and vintage. When you enter the grand parlor through the large entrance foyer, you will first notice the 13-foot ceilings. A large formal dining room and elegant living room each encompass wood-burning fireplaces. In the rear, you will discover a kitchen with a decked terrace and a stairway leading down to the large, landscaped garden. Continue up to the master bedroom floor, which includes a gracious sleeping area, two bathrooms, a large office and sitting room, walk-in closet and 12-foot ceilings. The top floor hosts three bedrooms with soaring ceiling heights over 13 feet in the northern bedroom loft, creating a gracious large bedroom or a spacious secondary family room. AD describes the property's garden level: "Especially loft-like is a smartly renovated English basement...a floor through family enclave that accesses a verdant garden." The street level entrance to this floor opens to a generous mud room and a large open kitchen centered on an 18 foot-long concrete island complete with a charming breakfast area and informal living room. The property also offers a large basement that is currently set-up as a home gym, complete with boxing equipment and a storage area. This is a co-exclusive between Compass and Core.
