Perched among lush trees and above a sprawling manicured lawn, this one-of-a-kind split two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence at Chelsea Enclave boasts unparalleled views of the Close, an exclusive block-long private garden in the heart of West Chelsea.
Interiors by renowned architect Alan Wanzenberg pay extraordinary attention to detail throughout, making use of every square inch of this perfectly designed jewel of a home. A gracious foyer opens to a bright, sun-lit living room with double-paned, floor-to-ceiling windows facing west, framing the bucolic and pin-drop quiet Close garden and the Gothic Revival architecture of the General Theological Seminary. The open kitchen features hammered Absolute Black granite countertops and custom natural white oak cabinetry. Premium appliances include a Wolf range top and 30-inch oven with fully vented Miele range hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and 46-bottle Sub-Zero wine cooler.
Both bedrooms overlook the picturesque Close for remarkable garden views throughout the home. The master suite is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple custom closets. Creamy Botticino Fiorito marble and rich woods add warmth to the sumptuous en suite master bathroom appointed with radiant heated floors; a Kohler Tea-for-Two bath; separate glass enclosed shower; Robern medicine cabinet; and an in-wall pullout storage system/hamper. The second bedroom connects to the living room by a solid wood pocket door, and the built-in bookshelves and desk create a versatile space that can be bedroom, home office, or study. Additional residence features include a second marble bathroom, vented Bosch washer/dryer, wide plank white oak flooring throughout, and a Unitone video intercom/alarm system.
Chelsea Enclave is a full-service luxury building that enjoys privileged access to the Seminary's verdant landmarked garden. Residents can also take advantage of the building's landscaped outdoor roof terrace with a gas BBQ grill, fitness center with a Pilates/yoga studio, children's playroom by Apple Seeds, bicycle room, parking garage and full-time staff.
As one of only a few residences at the Enclave that face the Close, residence 3L offers an extremely rare vantage point and respite from our bustling city.
