The exterior of 30 Grove Street, in the West Village, Manhattan

Don’t doubt the ongoing power of the West Village townhouse market.

In just two weeks, a townhouse at 30 Grove St. in need of serious renovation sold just below the asking price of $8.5 million. We hear the new owner, in finance, will restore the home.

First, they have to convert it to a one-family as the townhouse was previous cut up into lower and upper duplex apartments that rented for around $12,000 each. Together, the home will have seven bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths to go with a garden, deck and rooftop.

Grove St. is hot. A few months ago, newly renovated and in mint condition 38 Grove sold for $14 million, and 28 Grove is on the market for $13.995 million. 30 Grove, a Greek Revival home built in 1857, is across from Barrow Street ­Music School.
