If you’re in the market for a top notch New York City bachelor pad with a patriotic history look no further. This is one of the most impressive pieces of real estate available in The Big Apple.
80 Washington Place in Greenwich Village was built in 1839 but was recently renovated into a stunning masterpiece of fine design elements ranging from wooden floors, stone walls, and exposed brick.
Famed composer and conductor John Philip Sousa owned the house in the early 1900’s. Quick history crash course, Sousa wrote patriotic hits as “Semper Fidelis,” the official march of the Marines, and “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” our nation’s national march. Feel free to bust out this trivia fact when you hold a $5,000-a-plate fund raiser for Chris Christie’ 2016 Presidential campaign.
The house hit the market for $31.5 million in June 2012, making it the most expensive townhouse for sale in Greenwich Village, but the sky-high price was lowered to $29.9 million earlier this month. What a steal!
Still an outrageous number, but if you can afford this 5-story gem with a 360 degree view from the roof it would make for some epic cocktail parties.
