This handsome home boasts approximately 9,652 square feet of interior living space and 2,412 square feet of outdoor space with 5-7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, two roof terraces, and a private 33-foot deep garden. Notable features include a two-car garage and a commercial grade elevator serving all 7 levels from the cellar to the roof terrace.

A two tier movie theatre with surround sound and a full laundry room equipped with two sets of LG washers and dryers complement this floor with additional storage. </br></br> <b>Garden Level:</b> </br> A gracious foyer welcomes you into this home with exquisite herringbone floor, wood paneling, and a coat closet. Adjacent to the foyer is the entrance to a highly coveted 2 car garage with copious storage space. Down the hall, past a unique, architecturally designed, staircase with custom iron work railings, leads into the eat-in chef's kitchen welcomed by verdant views of the private garden courtyard. Bedecked in limestone and Statuary Lincoln checkerboard style marble floors and outfitted with high-end appliances including two Miele dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, wine fridge, and a vented Viking range. The custom built wood-paneled room features abundant storage space, stone countertops, and a large center island.

Built in 1847 as wealthy New Yorkers began constructing wide brownstone mansions along lower 5th Avenue above Washington Square. </br></br> In the early 1960s, after the Macmillan building became the Forbes building, Malcolm S. Forbes bought the house from the Macmillan family. Throughout both the Macmillan and Forbes periods it was the scene of dazzling entertainment, attended by names like David Niven, Elizabeth Taylor, Margaret Thatcher, the Reagans and Richard Nixon. A hidden treasure, the house at No. 11 West 12th Street with its rich history has been meticulously renovated and remastered.
