185- Year Old Downing Street Townhouse Wants $12 Million

185-Year-Old Downing Street Townhouse Wants $12 Million

Some of the oldest houses in New York City are located in the West Village, and the three-story number at 29 Downing Street is no exception. Built in 1829 on land that was likely owned by the third United States Vice President Aaron Burr (he owned a lot of the West Village), the red brick-faced abode just hit the market for a cool $12 million. According to a historic district designation report, it was originally built in 1829 as a two-story frame house and then expanded in 1870. Today, it's the home, studio, and gallery of John Bennett and Karen Lee Grant, an artist and photographer. Exposed beamed ceilings and original hardwood floors give it that West Village charm that led to it being used as a photo shoot location for House BeautifulElle, and two coffee table books.
