For $24.5M, a “horse walk” in your West Village home

The tall passageway leads from the street to a carriage house

Here’s an amenity you don’t find too often in the heart of the West Village: a horse walk. But that is precisely what the townhouse at 336 West 12th Street boasts.

The red brick Italianate house was built in the 1850s and features a tall passageway that leads from the street to a carriage house in its backyard. Listing agents Stan Ponte and Randall Gianopulos of Sotheby’s International Realty Told The Wall Street Journal that the passageway was originally used for horses.

The 24-foot-wide house measures about 7,000 square feet and has four bedrooms and an elevator. However, the original carriage house behind the home was replaced with a two-story home office at some point – so you can stop fantasizing about riding your roan through Greenwich Village now.

The property is owned by Lawrence Clark, the chief executive at the Vermont-based fuel technology company, Accordant Energy. He bought the house in 2008 for $11.6 million and has given it a thorough renovation.

One perk he added was a temperature-controlled wine room connecting the carriage house to the main house. Still, a functioning horse stable would have been a far more unique amenity. [WSJ]Christopher Cameron
