Three of a Kind: Charming Chelsea

Featured Properties // Jan 25, 2012

Once a fringe neighborhood housing art galleries and little more, Chelsea has become one of the most in-demand and bustling neighborhoods in Manhattan, a bridge between Downtown cool and Midtown convenience. Here are our favorite available properties in the neighborhood that art created.

This is what many people move to Chelsea for: a huge airy loft with the high-end finishes of a luxury home. Located in the Chainworks Building, which dates back to 1888, this 2,688-square-foot condo has a 40-foot-long living/dining area that’s perfect for entertaining, and a decked out Archlinea kitchen to make cooking for the guests a pleasure. Great layout aside, the building also offers an outdoor lounge with a grill, a rooftop sun-deck, a bike room and more.

A stunning modern design and 14′ ceilings are the headlines in this 1,700-square-foot home, but real estate, like life, is all in the details. Here they include a private 361-square-foot terrace with a sunny southern exposure, a built-in sound system throughout the apartment, a deeded underground parking space and concierge service provided by the Maritime Hotel, one of Manhattan’s best boutique inns.

Of course, Chelsea isn’t only for art world billionaires. Located in one of the most charming brick apartment buildings in the city is this perfect one-bedroom co-op, where not an inch of space is wasted. Brilliant built-ins, a separate kitchen and high-end touches like Silestone countertops and a Bertazzoni stove makes this not your average starter home.
