A townhouse property at 122 Waverly Place in Greenwich Village has hit the market with an asking price of $18.9 million, according to Streeteasy.com. Located in Between Sixth Avenue and Washington Square West, the 22-foot-wide home was previously a multi-family property and underwent conversion into a single-family home.

Amanda Sawyer and Noble Black at the Corcoran Group have the listing for the nearly 7,000-square-foot home. Sawyer told The Real Deal that the owners of the home completely gut-renovated the property, leaving none of the original interior behind. According to Sawyer, they “took something that was a classic Village townhouse and … reconstructed from the inside out.”

Sawyer declined to identify the owner of the property. Gerald Rosenfeld, former head of investment banking at Lazard, who returned to the firm last year as strategic advisor and as vice chairman of U.S. Investment Banking, appears to be the seller. A phone message and an email to Lazard’s media contacts seeking confirmation and comment were not immediately returned.

Rosenfeld and his wife, Judith Zarin, purchased the townhouse for $6 million in 2005, public records show.

The home features a marble fireplace, a garden space and an elevator. The home has four bedrooms and six bathrooms.

As The Real Deal previously reported, townhouse sales were on the upswing between January and May of this year.
