This pint-sized penthouse perched atop an elevator building at 368 West 23rd Street in West Chelsea manages to pack everything you need into two levels of renovated, sun-filled space and look good doing it. Asking $1.6 million, the one-bedroom co-op is freshly renovated with two full baths, new hardwood floors, central air conditioning, a wood-burning fireplace, and a washer/dryer. But it’s the impressive expanses of terrace that make the biggest impress
The home’s lower floor offers plenty of living space–according to the listing there’s enough room to create a second bedroom. A tasteful modern renovation leaves the space fresh and sparkling though the building’s solid pre-war construction remains in evidence. Through a pair of wood-framed glass doors is a terrace that’s perfect for entertaining.
The clean, bright kitchen boasts a working wood-burning fireplace, plenty of storage and a vented range. A coral-painted brick accent wall and a pale green glass tile backsplash add a splash of color and texture to keep white-box boredom at bay.
Upstairs, another terrace–this one big, sunny and paved–overlooks bustling West Chelsea. Modern details include cool corrugated siding and a big expanses of glass.
Just inside, an equally sunny bedroom gets a big walk-in closet and one of two newly-minted baths with radiant heat floors and all the trimmings.
