Preservationists are fiercely protective of Greenwich Village's historic architecture, but there is still room for eye-catching new design. Case in point: 9 Minetta Street, which started out as a 20-unit tenement dating back to 1883, but has been masterfully renovated into a single-family townhouse.

An entity known as West Village-Minetta Partners LLC purchased the building for $4,405,209 in April 2012 (per Acris). Since then, the South Village Historic District was extended to Minetta Street; however, as the approvals for the project were already in place, work was allowed to proceed. Construction is winding down on H2 Architects’ design, and the townhouse has been listed for a whopping $24.8 million, the most expensive home of this type on the market in Greenwich Village (per CityRealty listings).
The pandemic has left many New Yorkers seeking larger apartments, if not townhouses, in search of more space and privacy. 9 Minetta Street offers that in spades along with a historically rich setting: Bob Dylan wrote “Blowin’ in the Wind” at The Fat Black Pussycat, which was located at 11 Minetta Street; Al Pacino’s Serpico character lived at 7 Minetta Street, and the street is steps away from Washington Square Park, acclaimed restaurants, and designer shopping. Moreover, while the interiors have been renovated with the highest quality finishes and materials, the buyer’s interior designer can work with the architect to incorporate custom touches for a truly one-of-a-kind home.
