Chelsea has recently become known for having a strong presence of new developments sprouting up throughout the neighborhood. However, Chelsea is home to several prewar buildings, each with its own desirable set of characteristics which are true representations of the neighborhood’s historic charms. Here’s a look at three prewar classics currently available.
When walking through North Chelsea, you’re bound to stumble upon tree-lined streets with rows of classic prewar buildings. This recently renovated 1-bedroom with a working fireplace happens to be located on one of those quintessential New York blocks. This apartment’s private terrace also overlooks the building’s lush backyard.
Located in the Chelsea Mercantile, a building originally constructed in 1908 as a fabric manufacturing building, this loft’s open floorplan, high ceilings, and oversized windows stay true to the building’s unique history. Another perk to keeping this loft looking neat and spacious, a private storage space on the same floor is included in the sale.
With prewar features such as crown molding, original hardwood floors and windows in each room, it’s easy to feel at home in this 3-bedroom apartment that recently went through a full renovation. The updated kitchen features classically designed, custom wood cabinetry and the two renovated bathrooms have preserved their prewar charm.
