Veteran broker Leslie J. Garfield’s former West Village townhouse — which he sold for $7.65 million in 2015 — is back on the market following a two-year gut renovation and expansion.

The Greek Revival townhouse at 313 West 4th Street is asking $22.9 million, or $4,320 per foot. Leslie J. Garfield’s Matt Lesser, Ravi Kantha, Matt Pravda and Christopher Riccio have the listing.

The current owner is developer David Slaven of Maspeth-based Red Brick Properties, according to records. He purchased the house in 2015 from Garfield, who had owned it since 1969 as part of his personal investment portfolio.

Before selling the house, Garfield worked with the architectural SPG and the Landmarks Preservation Commission to secure plans to expand the 20-foot-wide home. “It was a shovel-ready site,” said Lesser, who also sold the house in 2015. “He was ahead of the game.”

Slaven’s two-year renovation involved pushing back the building on two levels, adding a fifth floor and excavating the basement. In all, 1,700 square feet were added to the property, which now totals 5,300 square feet. The below-grade basement has natural light, nine-foot ceilings and houses a media room and 500-bottle wine cellar.

According to the listing, the five-story house has five bedrooms and four baths, plus a bluestone garden, outdoor kitchen and radiant heated sidewalk and stoop.

Lesser said the house is staged with 30 works by the artists Mel Bochner, Chuck Close, Cecily Brown and Terry Winters, which are on loan from Two Palms Gallery. “The goal here is for the buyer to imagine it as lived-in, or how they would use it,” Lesser said.
