Nestled on one of the most desirable corners of Tribeca, 452 Greenwich Street is a rare and historic home that has been impeccably well-maintained and updated for the past 20 years by the current owners. Originally built in 1819, the 25’ x 60’ building has been transformed into a cutting-edge single-family residence with distinctive and exceptional features, including a brand-new custom kitchen by The Kennebec Company. Spanning 7,500 interior square feet, the highlights of the home include a coveted single-car garage, 38 windows, 3 wood-burning fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, a 2,500-bottle wine cellar, and an elevator that spans the entire home, including the mature rooftop garden.

In 1852, the property underwent a transformation under the ownership of William B. Howenstine, its second proprietor.

The building was expanded to four stories, reflecting the Federal architectural style, and various brownstone additions were incorporated. Over time, the property changed hands and in 1903, New York County Sherriff William F. Grell, the third owner, introduced a restaurant on the ground floor while utilizing the upper levels as a personal residence.

Notable enhancements and features encompass the repointed facade, replaced sidewalks with newly planted trees, a water ejector system linked to a three-sump pump system for flood prevention.
