Condo · Chelsea · $1,850,000
A rare gem, this one-of-a-kind 2-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath rear facing corner loft is located in a highly sought after Chelsea condo conversion. This exquisite home effortlessly combines prewar ambiance with a stylish modern flair. The expansive design spanning 1,388 square feet makes this home an enviable space for entertaining and allows for a wide variety of setups to accommodate your individual tastes, including a possible conversion to a 3 bedroom 2 bath if desired.
High ceilings and beautifully finished hardwood floors run throughout and are complemented by the abundant natural light streaming in from the oversized windows, lending a touch of Old New York charm. The expansive living/dining room is accented by exposed piping, an artistic hanging chandelier, and an Art Deco vent-less fireplace. A stunning set of owner designed backlit bookcases created from two of the industrial-era windows frame the fireplace, providing a unique and distinctive flair. The large, U-shaped open kitchen is outfitted with a chic design scheme that mixes lots of all-white cabinets with high-end stainless steel appliances including a Sub-Zero fridge, Thermador stove, Bosch dishwasher and a Marvel wine fridge. A striking kitchen island provides extra counter space and storage.
The king-sized corner master bedroom is flooded with natural light and flanked by a queen sized second bedroom. The spacious bathroom includes his-and-hers sinks and a full soaking tub. There is tons of storage all across the apartment, including a walk-in closet. The unit also boasts a washer/dryer. Set on a serene stretch of 17th Street, the entire home remains very quiet.
Two-bedroom units rarely become available in the historic Brooks-Van Horn Building, a charming prewar structure once home to a theatrical costume manufacturer. This boutique, keyed-elevator building offers an absolutely unbeatable location at the nexus of Downtown Manhattan, steps from all the great restaurants and nightlife of Chelsea, with all the attractions of the West Village, Union Square, Madison Park and Gramercy within short walking distance. Several of the city's best public and private schools, including Avenues: The World School and Friends Seminary, are located nearby. The 1/2/3, A/C/E, F/M/L, N/Q/R, 4/5/6 and PATH trains are all just a few blocks away.
