A 1,000-square-foot farmhouse in Greenwich Village hit the market for $20 million and is being marketed as a development site.

Preservationist groups have expressed concerns that the 5,000-square-foot site at 121 Charles Street could become a condominium building or three-story mansion. The city would have to approve designs, given it is located in a landmark district.

The house, dating back to the 1800s, is one of the oldest in the city. “Goodnight Moon” author Margaret Wise Brown was a resident in the 1940s, the New York Daily News reported.

Suri Bieler has owned the property for 26 years. ERG Property Advisors broker Andrew Greenberg has the listing.

“This is one of the most beloved and historic corners of the Village,” Andrew Berman of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation told the New York Daily News. “We and many others would fight very hard to keep it that way.” [NYDN]Mark Maurer
