Hamilton lovers take note.
One of the West Village’s most photographed homes is back on the market for $9.99 million after a gut renovation.
Located at 29 Downing St. in historic Greenwich Village, the 25-foot-wide carriage house was originally built in 1829 on land that belonged to Aaron Burr, America’s third vice president, who sadly mortally wounded Alexander Hamilton – founder of the The New York Post and the first Secretary of the US Treasury – in a duel.
The house has been owned by artists for over 40 years.
John Bennett and Karen Lee Grant bought it for $155,000 in 1977 with a loan from previous owners. Back then, there was only one light bulb on each level, no bathroom, and just a gable for water.
In 2015, they listed him for $13 million. It sold in 2016 for $6.8 million. Now it’s back.
The three-story home measures 3,620 square feet and features three bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, and a curbside garage. The ground floor space is still used as an art gallery; the house is zoned for mixed use. The renovation reused the original wooden joists which were to be replaced with shelving.
Details include exposed beams, wide-plank hardwood floors, and a wall of folding glass doors that open to a terrace just under 900 square feet, surrounded by ivy-covered brick walls.
There is an outdoor kitchen on the patio with a gas grill, sunken garden and fire pit.
Inside, the house features an open kitchen with a breakfast bar, while an “industrial-chic” open staircase leads to the bedrooms on the top floor. A master bedroom features a wall of glass overlooking the sky-lit staircase and a spa-like bathroom. Two smaller bedrooms share another full bath with a frameless glass shower and skylight.
The ground floor features 14-foot-high ceilings, polished concrete floors, transom windows, and “glimpses into the garden below,” the listing notes, adding that the space could function as a ” “dream garage” for a car collector, art studio, gallery space, startup office or additional living space.
