Property Description

459 West 24th Street was built in 1849 as part of a dignified row of twelve four-story residences, which combines features of the Greek Revival and Italianate styles. The six pairs were constructed as mirror images, so each shared a stoop, divided by a centered common handrail. No 459 is 21-feet wide, built on a 103-foot deep lot. It is approximately 3970 square feet and while it is currently configured as a renovated three-family townhouse, its additional FAR makes it an ideal candidate for a single-family conversion. Set behind a landscaped 15 feet deep front yards paved in bluestone and planted with ivy and an ailanthus tree, the house is constructed of brick and retains its high stoop and doorway, fine ironwork, and the original bold modillion roof cornice. It sits above a rusticated brownstone English basement, which leads to a breath-taking private garden planted with ivy and mature trees. The property's well preserved architectural details include several ornate fireplace mantles, mid-19th century moldings and parquetry. 459 West 24th Street was initially the home of Isaac Dayton, a prominent counsellor-at-law and abolition activist. Two decades later, the property served as a boarding house to schoolteachers followed by many other notable personalities. The house remains a multi-family residence today; but it is one of the least-changed of the original group. Each of the houses along the charming setback row was given individual landmark designation in 1970. This incredible property is located on a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of Chelsea's Historical District, close to the High-Line Park, the Hudson River Park, and a wide variety of shops, dining, and easy access to transportation.
