Historic 19th-century Soho townhouse lists for $7M

A landmarked Soho townhouse steeped in New York history has hit the market for $7 million.

The Federal-style property, at 83 Sullivan St., dates to 1819 — just before locals fled the 1822 yellow fever and cholera epidemics for greener pastures more uptown. 

What’s more: the charming red brick home was built on farmland once owned by Nicholas Bayard, the brother-in-law of Peter Stuyvesant, the city’s last Dutch director-general of the New Netherland colony before the English took over.

By 1791, the parcel was sold to Aaron Burr, the third US vice president best known for killing Alexander Hamilton, a US founding father and the founder of the New York Post, in an 1804 duel. It was adjacent to Richmond Hill, Burr’s then-country estate.

Today, the 25-foot-wide, three-story home is 3,590 square feet and is currently configured as a floor-through apartment and an owner’s duplex. All together, it features five bedrooms and three outdoor spaces including a 65-foot-deep backyard.
