Why we have a crush on this property

Of all the out-of-the-box features we’d put in our dream home, a wall-to-wall bookcase with a hidden door is at the top of the list.

That dream has been realized in this sparkling home for sale in New York’s Greenwich Village. The unit in this 19th-century brick townhouse is as stately as it is stylish, and it’s got all the trimmings of the ultimate New York City apartment.

Situated steps from Washington Square Park, the three-bedroom home checks a lot of important boxes: Huge windows, exposed brick, several fireplaces, plus a stunning kitchen with open shelves, subway tile, and a farmhouse sink. But that hidden door in the bookcase really steals the show, if you ask us.

Beside the desk that nestles into the bookshelf, one seemingly average wall of shelves opens to a small closet with a mirror. Whether that secret room stays a coat closet or becomes a safe for storing treasures is up to its new owners.

This furnished abode is listed for $2,995,000 by Meris Blumstein with Corcoran.
