As you stroll along the Chelsea Flower District and look up, you'll see some remarkable, historical architecture. Inside one of the more attractive Pre-War buildings is a boutique residential address that has proudly been a part of this famous street since 1909. The handsome arches that grace floor 6 are the iconic detail that characterize the building. This rare loft home has a prime perch on floor 6, and its Southern exposure -- through those dramatic, oversized, arched windows -- brings this coveted residence an extraordinary bit of extra: extra character, extra personality, extra flair.
A keyed-off elevator brings you to a small hallway with only two residences on the landing. When you enter the front facing home, you'll feel the good vibes. Key themes here are light, warmth, and authenticity -- and this flexible, well-scaled residence is a standout. Tin ceilings soar 9'-3' above you, underfoot are attractive wood floors, and all around you are rich character and comfort.
The lofty living room is a welcoming space featuring those treasured curved windows, and offers room for a dining space. The front bedroom is smartly separated from the living area via custom designed panel doors -- offering the ability to double the size of the lofty living space when open, and the ability to close off the bedroom for complete privacy. (The front bedroom boasts a Resource Furniture Murphy bed -- the ideal choice for this special space, and included in the sale.)
The handsome, oversized kitchen offers a perfect balance of form and function -- practicality and beauty. With marble floors, impressive cabinet and counter space, top-shelf stainless appliances by Viking (range), Bosch (dishwasher & brand-new refrigerator), and Kenetico (top-tier reverse-osmosis drinking water filtration system at sink & through fridge), this kitchen is a culinary dream space.
The king-sized bonus room is currently configured as an interior sleeping area, and offers tons of custom closets and a super-scaled, en suite bath. The architect-designed and renovated bathroom boasts floor-to-ceiling slate tile, a custom vanity, and a large walk-in shower stall with top-shelf fixtures throughout. There is also a cleverly designed, en suite laundry room with a built-in hamper and stainless steel doors that unveil the piece-de-resistance: the Brand-new Bosch washer/dryer.
With a prime perch in its pet-friendly, boutique cooperative, and with a supreme location among the lush flowers and foliage of the prized Flower District, this higher-floor hero home has it all. With deeded private storage (4'7'), bike storage, a full time Super, and the benefits of the building's new remote-entry video intercom system, life here is easy and convenient.
A stone's throw from most every downtown cultural, dining, shopping, culinary, and fitness destination, this happy home's location comes with bragging rights: Madison Square Park, the Highline, and several 'pocket parks,' are nearby -- not to mention a 'foodies' haven (the NoMad, The Ace Hotel, Feroce, Eataly, L'Amico, etc., etc. -- plus Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Fairway, and Gristedes) -- and a plethora major transportation options (1/2/3/, A/C/E, B/D/F/M, N/R/Q/W, 4/5/6, AMTRAK, LIRR & PATH trains).
If the home you seek needs to have history, elegance, comfort, and an expansive flexibility for all of your growing needs, then look no further. Come discover the magic behind the amazing arched windows.
