The thing about 323 West 19th Street, a four-story single-family Chelsea townhouse recently listed for $7,250,000, is that it never got carried away with itself. Getting carried away with oneself is something that can often happen in townhouse renovations, and sometimes it turns out well. (Sometimes it doesn’t.) But 323 West 19th Street seems content as a fairly standard—albeit very, very nice—5BR, 3.5BA, 3,680-square-foot house, and that’s okay with us. The rear garden is something else, though.
With ceilings of nearly 11-feet in height, the grand parlor floor encompasses a large and airy living room with a wet-bar and one of five wood-burning fireplaces. The living room is flanked by a handsome wood-paneled library with fireplace and a cozy sunroom that leads to a large terrace. On the third floor is the master bedroom with stunning en suite bathroom, fireplace, walk-in closet, private terrace as well as an additional bedroom or den. The fourth floor is flooded with natural light from a skylight and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
