Bedford Street between Morton and Commerce has long been a treasured Village tree lined block of townhouses. Laid out prior to 1799 and named after a street in London, this block contains several of the oldest houses in the Village and continues to be the heart of New York’s Greenwich Village historic landmarked district.

Once home to some of the city’s most celebrated luminaries: Poet Edna St. Vincent Millay — the first woman to win the Pulitzer Price for poetry lived in a house across the street. Paul Stookey social justice activist and singer of Peter Paul and Mary fame lived next door at 70 Bedford.

Behind the 1821 historic façade of No.68, awaits a home that is bathed in light, and an authentic and thoughtful restoration designed by noted Village architect Carl Pucci offers an enchanting and distinguished single-family home.

As you enter up the stoop you are welcomed by open parlor rooms with original wide pine floorboards, black Carrara mantles, wood burning fireplaces, and original ceiling medallions. Floor to ceiling French doors overlook a large garden.

On the garden level one discovers a spacious and inviting kitchen/ dining room with wood burning fireplace, and windows and door onto the large, planted garden. There is also a half bath on this level.

The upper floors offer a primary bedroom suite with sitting room and 3 additional bedrooms and a bath on the floor above.

The house has been very well maintained and has central air conditioning.

(Note: 68 Bedford is the middle house of a row of 5 houses developed by masons James Vandenbergh and Isaac Freeman. Vandenbergh, master mason of Trinity Church, also became an important builder in The Village and made No. 68. Bedford Street his home.)
