Gorgeous Greenwich Village Townhouse Once Owned by John Philip Sousa
Built in 1839 in the classical Georgian style, this elegant townhouse was once owned by famed composer and conductor John Philip Sousa, known primarily for his American military and patriotic marches. Fast forward to 2013, and the home has been transformed into a state-of-the-art masterpiece that blends classic and modern style.

The 8,757-square-foot residence underwent a three-year restoration by developer William Rainero in conjunction with award-winning architectural team, Clodagh Design. The home's south-side entrance leads to the stunning two-story living room, bordered by an alfresco dining area and teak cabana. The lower floor also features a wine tasting lounge, a media room and two gourmet kitchens.
Climb the glass staircase or ride the custom elevator up the home's seven – yes, seven – floors, and you'll find multiple bedroom suites with spa-like bathrooms including steam showers and Toto fixtures. A sprawling rooftop deck with spectacular views of both Washington Square Park and the Freedom Tower tops off this incredible building. Originally listed for $31.5 million, the home has been reduced in price to $28.9 million.
