Attention lovers of pre-war proportion and contemporary finishes: 225 West 25th Street #1K is for you. This enormous, beautifully crafted one bedroom in a prime Chelsea Art Deco elevator coop marries form and function to create a tranquil oasis. You will be pleasantly surprised when you walk in and, yes, you absolutely can just bring your toothbrush.
The lucky placement of this home in the building allows for a truly tranquil oasis. At the northeast corner of the building, it shares few walls with neighbors and there's no one below you. Facing north to the back of the building above the quiet, unused backyard, you'll get absolutely no street noise, and you can landscape your own view!
A foyer closet and large dining gallery introduce you to Art Deco details like rounded soffits, original inset shelving, crown and cove molding and artfully angled walls. Currently used for dining, this 14 foot long gallery sparkles with a fabulous Italian chandelier. You can dine or set up your office in this space or, frankly, do both. Step down between original wrought iron railings to the king-sized living room that absolutely gobbles up your furniture. It can serve as living, dining, and work from home, depending on your preference.
The double-sided, windowed, galley kitchen is finished in white lacquer with gray accents including Caesarstone counters, glass tile backsplash and stainless appliances including a Bertazzoni oven and gas cooktop stove, an integrated, full-sized Bosch dishwasher, a built-in microwave and a Blomberg refrigerator. Artfully placed lighting illuminates your copious storage, cook and prep space.
Like the living room, the bedroom is also enormous, easily fitting a king bed, office area, exercise space, and bedroom furniture. The bedroom has a double customized closet, making four total in the apartment, not including a free, walk-in sized storage cage in the basement.
The windowed, spa-like bath in neutral Porcelanosa tile, glass and chrome has a floating wood vanity, and a Grohe rain shower system.
From the kitchen and bath to the closet interiors and window shades, everything has been constructed with care. High ceilings, a window in every room, crown and cove molding, picture rail, the gallery and sunken living room - along with three patterns of oak floor - contribute to the feeling of space in this peaceful home.
The 65 unit elevator cooperative has a true lobby, video security, a central laundry room, a bike room (for a fee), storage for each apartment (free), a planted roof deck and backyard, and a live in super-intendant who takes packages. Transportation couldn't be better as it's poised between major subways including C, E and 1 trains, a few blocks from the B, F, M, a stone's throw from major crosstown arteries at 34th and 23rd Streets, Penn Station and Port Authority. Restaurants, shopping and culture at Hudson Yards, Chelsea Market, 6th Avenue's Miracle Mile, Chelsea Arts District and the Highline are all neighborhood highlights.
The building considers co-purchasing with working children, pieds a terre and pets. Washer dryers are not allowed in the units. Sublet is considered 3 years out of 10 after 2 years of ownership. Please reach out to the exclusive agent for all questions and private appointments.
