We’re betting that Craigslist founder Craig Newmark didn’t find the lovely Greenwich Village co-op that he just purchased for $5.9 million on his namesake website.

Newmark and his wife Eileen closed on the duplex — located on the first two floors of a four-story, 19th century townhouse at 52 West 9th Street – on May 5, according to city property records.

The three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home comes with 11-foot ceilings on both floors, a wood-burning fireplace, a landscaped garden and a basement featuring a temperature-controlled wine room.

The duplex also comes with a private two-story carriage house that has been converted to a temperature-controlled library with 18-foot-high ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace of its own.

The Newmarks purchased the home from the estate of late attorney and Wall Street investment banker Robert Pirie, who died last year.

Mary Vetri of Brown Harris Stevens, who had the listing, did not immediately return requests for comment. Neither the Newmarks nor representatives for Pirie’s estate could immediately be reached for comment.
