The Greenwich Village townhouse that children’s book author EB White called his home
LIST OF THE DAY
Site: Greenwich Village, Manhattan
Price: $ 10.5 million
EB White, author of “Charlotte’s Web” and “Stuart Little,” lived in this now fully renovated Greek Revival townhouse in the Manhattan neighborhood.
White, who was also editor of The New Yorker for nearly 60 years, moved to New York City in 1925, renting an apartment on the third floor of this townhouse on West 13e Street with three of his Cornell University fraternity brethren, according to published reports.
The five-story home has just come out of a renovation, plus a restoration by Interior Marketing Group (IMG). It now includes five separate outdoor spaces, including a rear garden and a landscaped roof terrace.

“IMG has done a phenomenal job of really bringing this home to life,” said listing agent Claudia Saez-Fromm of Corcoran, who maintained the list with her husband and business partner Mark David Fromm earlier this year. The owners have since decided to write off the property. “It just became a whole new house on the block.”
“Some of these townhouses can be very dark, but this one is nice and bright, with tons of light,” she said.
The four-bedroom home is “103 feet deep and 20 feet wide, so you have plenty of space,” she added. “And he has a nice distance from the street.”
Architectural features include lots of woodwork and moldings, high ceilings, original pocket doors, wood-burning fireplaces with carved stone mantels, and new wood floors.
The garden level includes a guest suite with its own entrance and a large multimedia room with a bar that opens onto the garden.
One level higher, the living room floor offers two fireplaces, a living room, a formal dining room and a newly remodeled kitchen, which can be closed with sliding glass doors. A terrace overlooks the garden.

The master bedroom occupies most of the third floor. It has a bay window with a sitting area, two closets, a fireplace and a north-facing bathroom with a bathtub.
The fourth floor has two secondary bedrooms en suite and a terrace.
The fifth-floor entertainment room has a powder room, wet bar, oven, and half-fridge, so you don’t have to go back down to the kitchen. The room is nestled between two terraces, one facing north, the other south. Steps lead up to the roof terrace, which measures over 350 square feet.
“The house is great for entertaining and the outdoor spaces make it really special,” Ms. Saez-Fromm said.
