In addition to its history, the building is incredibly UNIQUE because of how DEEP it is built -- 67 feet all the way back to the lot line. This allows one to create the ideal space -- living, dining, kitchen, and outdoor space all on a single floor -- while most townhouse offerings don't have the depth to accommodate this layout.
Over 120 years ago, in 19th century New York, a family of blacksmiths moved into a townhouse on a quaint, tree-lined, street in West Village 22 Christopher Street. This family held their trade through the generations, rising to the pinnacle by, for a time, smithing horseshoes exclusively for the legendary "Seabiscuit" race horse. Remnants of the family and their blacksmith tradition can be found preserved throughout the building, from hundreds of metal horseshoes, to vintage artwork of "old" Christopher Street, and countless pieces of antique furniture. 22 Christopher Street has created a unique and distinct stamp in New York City history. Even the antique light switch panels hidden in plain view throughout the building tell a story about West Village found only in authentic and historically preserved buildings such as this one, impossible to find today.
This is your opportunity to respond to a part of New York City history that will never present itself again. Soak in the "old" village charm present in every corner of the building and restore the space to its historic splendor. Or imagine an entirely new space, overlaying modern aesthetic onto original decades old hardwood floors found on the upper floors. The street, the block, the village await your personal stamp on this timeless piece of New York City history.
