Classic Art Deco flair meets modern updated elegance.
This pre-war gem offers the best of both worlds. The original art deco details combine with sophisticated, contemporary renovations. Perched on the fifth floor of a six story low-rise, this sun-splashed, south-facing home offers peace and tranquility and yet its prime Chelsea location is one of the most vibrant and desirable spots the city has to offer.
Arriving, the gracious entry foyer serves as a pivotal point from which to enter all rooms. Step down to the expansive sunken living room and dining area with its high ceilings and open south-facing views. It is perfect for entertaining, whether formal dinner parties or fun TV-binging. The bright windowed kitchen has been renovated with top-of-the-line appliances, including a Liebherr refrigerator, a wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher, Bertazzoni stove, and an above-the-range venting microwave/oven. The custom cabinetry with tons of storage and generous granite countertops, will satisfy the most discerning of chefs (or aspiring cooks). The windowed renovated bathroom is exquisitely tiled and offers a deep soaking tub, recessed lighting and a gorgeous floating vanity with ample storage beneath. An oversized primary bedroom, with two large closets, accommodates a king-sized bed and still has room for a dresser and nightstands. As an added bonus, the CitiQuiet soundproof windows on top of the already double insulated casement windows, will ensure a pin drop-quiet night's sleep. Work from home? Not a problem. There are numerous possibilities for placement of a desk. Other features include beautifully refinished ebony hardwood flooring, abundant closets, and timeless base and crown moldings, as well as through-the-wall AC units in each room.
Chelsea Gardens is a unique Art-Deco six-story complex comprising two buildings with a beautifully landscaped courtyard garden. Other amenities of this full-service cooperative, include a 24-hour doorman, concierge, live-in resident manager, restored art deco lobbies and elevators, central laundry in each building, a bike room, and additional private storage.
The location cannot be beat with easy access to transportation on either corner. Its proximity to shopping, galleries, dining, nightlife, entertainment, and recreational attractions, will enable you to effortlessly take advantage of the sophisticated lifestyle and all that Manhattan living has to offer just beyond your doorstep.
This one is not to be missed. Pets are welcome.
