Van Dyke Place is a brief, secluded, tree-lined street on the south side of the West Village where almost every home is noteworthy. Homes here don’t hit the market too often, but one did just this week. It’s listed through O’Connor Real Estate for $399,900.
There’s a lot to like about the five-bedroom, 2,583-square-foot home built in 1904. It’s got a cute little third-floor balcony—that’s probably not meant for standing on—above a layer of stucco and a layer of brick. The backyard has some lovely landscaping with a fire pit, brick patio, and detached garage that looks like a miniature version of the house itself.
The wood is plentiful on the inside—there’s some on the vestibule door, staircase, gorgeous fireplace mantle, along the frames to entryways, and on the floors. The kitchen has more modern touches, like the island with a stove-top and butcher block counter, alongside some great built-in cabinets with glass doors. The third floor also comes with a bedroom and storage space.
We think this home, one of the oldest in the West Village, could be a great place to raise a family.
