The Art House is a unique piece of New York
history. This West Village townhouse was built in 1857 and the 44' wide mansion was used during the Civil War as the
Northern Naval Officers Headquarters and still has the Navy insignia and stars on its facade. It is called the art
house because it was later owned by the print maker for Toulouse-Lautrec and became the first fine art print making
facility in the United States. It has wide open square spaces and high ceilings. The home has 12,000 total square feet
on three levels and a private enclosed atrium terrace. There are eight bedrooms, seven fireplaces, five skylights and
60 windows to offer light from all four sides. Other details include an elevator, garage and a roof terrace. It sells for $18.95 million.
