146 Waverly

Nestled in a row of historic townhouses in central Greenwich Village, Waverly Place maintains its dignified 19th century elegance, still keeping that spirit alive today. It’s in this street, bordering Washington Square Park, that Henry James set his famous novel, and Mad Men character Donald Draper kept his bachelor pad.

 

At first glance 146 Waverly could simply be one of many typical Greek Revival rental apartment units in the neighborhood. But a closer look inside reveals a modern five-story residence far from typical. Fitted with state-of-the-art home technology, it reflects the metropolitan vibe of downtown New York and the elegance you’d expect of the neighborhood.

The renovation is the result of the combined efforts of architecture firm The Turett Collaborative and developers The Ascend Group, who gutted the 1905 townhouse to make room for more contemporary spaces fitting modern requirements. Complete with two living rooms, a formal dining room, a recreation room and seven bedrooms, the residence also features its own elevator designed to offer homeowners a convenient way to navigate around the house.

Contrary to its warm exterior, the entire home features cool white walls, light oak flooring, and an overall neutral pared-down palette. The main entryway is sectioned off with steel-framed windows that define the living room’s modern look along with a statement Sputnik chandelier, and muted brown and beige seating.

The kitchen backsplash and island features an elegant marble surface that blend beautifully with the oak cabinets and wooden dining table.

Consistent with the steel-framed partitions by the entryway, a floor-to-ceiling window leads out to the private yard, extending the dining space outdoors.

Structured outdoor furniture takes up the main area of the private yard, surrounded by steel outdoor kitchen equipment perfect for entertaining guests on a sunny afternoon.

The stairway offers a soft contrast to the otherwise modern edges dominant in the interiors.

On the first floor, the living room enjoys more space and light with a balcony that looks out to the private yard. Additionally, it features a pared down look that works well to highlight the large marble fireplace.

An elegant master bedroom suite can be found on the third floor, with its own private terrace and cozy fireplace.

Long mirrors are placed on either side of the fireplace and help elongate the room. The symmetrical placement of the pink armchairs adds an element of purpose to the bedroom, providing a lounge space in the private areas of the home.

Other bedrooms feature more playful decor, such as this sunburst mirror and decorative Scandinavian-style ladder.

Even the bathroom is nothing short of glamorous. Decked out in marble, the bathroom offers plenty of space to unwind with a relaxing bath or a quick soothing shower.

Of course, a private home office can’t be forgotten. The room boasts simple decor, save from a stylish rug and several pieces of art, to ensure maximum productivity.

Game rooms are the perfect way to bring social activities together, especially for family residences. The home makes use of its basement as a quiet entertainment room with its own foosball table.

Finally, for evening gatherings and city views, the rooftop offers plenty of space to celebrate. There’s even a sleek fire pit for warming up around the bonfire.
