It’s Free to Look: 38 Grove Street

After a long day at the hedge fund, it's always nice to escape to a more comfortable environment. In this $15.9 million Greenwich Village mansion, you can escape to a more comfortable century.

"Enter the home and be transported back to 1851 perfection," says the George Agiovlasitis listing. We're not historians, but we're pretty sure "built-in surround sound home entertainment system[s]" didn't exist in 1851. Still, it was apparently a good year for light. The townhouse's enormous windows illuminate the space so profoundly, the listing feels inspired to take us back in time still further and quote Cornelius Celsus, basically the Martha Stewart of ancient Rome.

Speaking of Rome, this old house has a serious thing for marble. With nine marble fireplaces, five marble bathrooms and two marble powder rooms, you'll be all set to hatch plots to overthrow the Republic! When you're not doing that, the 42-foot-long backyard offers "endless opportunities for the gardening enthusiast," such as planting things and watering them. — William Alden
