 A five-story Federal-style townhouse in the West Village is set to hit the market asking $23.9 million.

The historic 9,000-square-foot home, located at 21 West 10th Street, was built in 1833 on a lot that was originally owned by John Jacob Astor. Although  over the years a portion of the structure was divided into six rental units, the property is being marketed as a single-family home, according the New York Times.

The 26-and-one-half-foot-wide building currently features a 4,500-square-foot owner’s triplex on the lower floors, a gym and a 20-person hot tub in the basement.

Roger Erickson of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

“The house has lovely views of other historic homes, is flooded with sunlight, has an incredible garden, and grand-scale details,” Erickson said. “Even the fifth floor has such unique features as a huge picture window, skylights and an 18-foot-tall ceiling.” [NYT] Christopher Cameron
