If you’ve ever walked down MacDougal or Sullivan streets, I'm sure you have come across a row of brightly colored townhomes – often referred to as “Rainbow Row.” What many passersby are unaware of, is that what sits behind these rows of townhomes is a private oasis – the MacDougal Sullivan Historic Garden.
The posh garden is bordered by 22 townhouses - With 12 townhouses on MacDougal street and 10 townhouses on Sullivan street all backing up to one another, the 22 houses in total share a completely unique common garden akin to a park only accessed through the rear of these valuable and coveted homes. A myriad of stars and artists have called this secret space home over the years, including Bob Dylan, Richard Gere and Anna Wintour, as well as Italian painter Francesco Clemente, his wife, theatrical designer and style icon Alba Clemente, photographer and film director Francesco Carrozzini, Australian film director Baz Luhrmann, and French composer Edgard Varèse, among others.
Due to the limited number of townhomes and their coveted garden access, these properties rarely hit the market. If you are interested in owning a a home in this special part of Greenwich Village, we have a new MacDougal-Sullivan Garden townhouse coming to market for sale. .
