Residence 3A at 32 West 18th Street is a sprawling 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom loft home nestled in the trendy Chelsea and Flatiron districts. This spacious 3,007 sq ft unit immediately greets you upon entry with its open concept living and soaring 11.5-foot ceilings in every room. Key features include heated oak and stone floors, oversized mahogany-encased windows, central radiant heating throughout and central air conditioning supplied from the building (without additional charge), an in-unit full size washer and dryer, a gas-burning fireplace, and a total of three exposures- north, south and east. With only two residences per floor, there are only 21 units in this exclusive building which makes this home an exemplar of contemporary city luxury.
The Great Room has huge beautiful landmark mahogany-trimmed windows that let in natural light yet keep out the noise. A remote-controlled gas-burning fireplace is perfect for cozy winter gatherings here. The space opens up to an expansive dining area perfect for sit down dinners with large groups. Even a celebrity chef would envy the state-of-the-art Valcucine-designed “Rosewood” kitchen, equipped with a substantial island overlooking the Great Room. The kitchen features custom fit cabinetry throughout alongside sleek white glass countertops, and boasts nine built-in appliances, including Sub-Zero and Miele double ovens, cooling drawers, a Cappuccino maker and a dual-zone wine cooler. The sellers upgraded the kitchen to extend the counter space by an additional 8 feet and expanding the pantry and storage areas, differentiating Residence 3A from the other A line units in the building!
Past the entry gallery, with its spacious coat closet and beautifully tiled powder room, is the primary bedroom with its double exposures, and large trademark windows. The 11.5-ft ceilings continue through each of the three bedrooms. The primary bedroom is accented by an XL customized California walk-in closet as well as a pair of reach-in closets. A spa-like en-suite bath showcases beautiful creamy Italian marble, a wide double vanity, and the highlight – both a generous step-in rain shower and a deep Thermomasseur jetted soaking tub-- perfect to soak away your troubles!
Next to the primary bedroom is a spacious second bedroom featuring a wall of full height built-ins, including convenient pull-down hangers which increase the already ample closet space. This room boasts its own en-suite bath adorned with imported marble finishes, an artisan back-painted glass wall and another rain shower.
The third bedroom is separated by wide double doors from the living area and is perfect for use as a bedroom or home office/ study. The sellers are currently using it as an art studio to take advantage of the abundant natural light.
