Über 436 West 20th Street

Built in 1835, this 25 wide, five-story mansion was built in the Greek Revival Style and is one of the
oldest houses on one of New Yorks very finest historic blocks. Currently configured as five elegant, floor-through apartments, the house could be converted back to a private residence.

The sweeping staircase embraces the interior while artisan-crafted moldings and medallions decorate
the walls and ceilings. Ten wood-burning fireplaces, hand-carved mantle pieces and original
wide-plank floors are a testament to forgotten times.

Perfectly located in West Chelsea across from The Close (the picturesque gardens of the General
Theological Seminary) the house is minutes away from Chelsea Piers, The Highline and Hudson River

Each of the five apartments offer large, open living spaces, high ceilings, wood burning fireplaces,
crown moldings, tons of storage, Bosch Washers and Dryers, and sound proofing. Each kitchen
features Viking Stoves and Wine Coolers and Liebherr Refrigerators. Four of the apartments
are 1,800 square feet, while the apartment on the parlor floor is 1,700 square feet.

The garden apartment features a private entrance, three bathrooms, a wider floor plate, and a private
rear yard, the penthouse has a private elevator and features 18-foot-high ceilings, skylights, a
mezzanine sleeping area with two bedrooms, a rooftop garden with views of the Skyline and
Hudson River, and a large roof deck.

A wealthy merchant named John N. Smith purchased the land for 436 West 20th St. from
Clement Clarke Moore, author of A Visit from St. Nicholas, who divided this section of his s
Chelsea estate into lots in 1834 as the rapidly growing city pushed northward. In 1962, actress
Frances Gaar purchased the house and rented rooms in her townhouse to many artists and
celebrities. Once called the Chelsea Mansion, it has a colorful and storied history.
