This 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of Chelsea features many charming details and original old world touches. 231 W 21st street is a lovely pre-war coop on a quiet, tree lined street consisting of two adjoined sister buildings. Each building has its own elevator, oversized laundry room, storage and bike room (for a small yearly fee). Connecting the two buildings is a tranquil patio for resident use only.
The south facing living room has a beautiful decorative marble fireplace, hardwood floors, high ceilings and numerous other classic details. The kitchen has a charming pre-war porcelain sink, an original stove that so many chefs love to use for cooking, an area for a small work desk with a south facing window, and even room for a large 6 seater dining table. There is a new full size stainless steel refrigerator, abundant counter space and cabinets (upper and lower). Despite the many excellent restaurants in the area, you just might never leave this splendid kitchen. A long gallery hallway takes you from the front door to the living room. There are two cozy bedrooms (can fit a queen sized bed) off the hallway, and a bathroom with classic design details and updated fixtures.
231 W 21 Street is on a prime central Chelsea block between 7th and 8th Ave. Transportation, a myriad of restaurants and shops, etc are all in the immediate area. The building is impeccably managed with no underlying mortgage, no history of any assessments, and a low maintenance. Co-purchasers, gifting, pied-a-terres, and guarantors are allowed. The only thing not allowed are dogs (cats ok).
