Nestled on the coveted Seminary Block in the historic district of West Chelsea, this floor-through 19th Century townhouse residence boasts unparalleled pre-war craftsmanship.
Inside the parlor, a soaring 12-foot high ceiling, framed by hand-carved crown molding, champions the home's grand proportions. The front entrance opens to a grand dining room that can be partitioned into a formal space by sliding wood doors or opened to the living room for a free-flowing layout. Adjacent to the dining room through French doors resides the spacious master bedroom. Inside, two south facing floor-to-ceiling windows reveal the landmarked clock tower of the General Theological Seminary across the street. Three fireplaces, two sculpted from white marble and one from red granite, etched glass door inlays, stained oak floors and medallion-wrapped light fixtures further illuminate the rich historic splendor of this apartment.
Past the dining room, an open whitewashed chef's kitchen with a marble island features premium appliances including a Wolf induction cooktop with a Faber range hood, GE dual oven/microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and Uline wine fridge. The kitchen is flanked by a living room and private terrace overlooking the gardens of neighboring townhomes; an ideal space for indoor-outdoor entertaining. North facing bay windows breathe natural light into a living room that can also be used for a breakfast table. The master bathroom features a large glass enclosed shower with warm marble tiling and a Myson heated towel warmer.
Situated moments from the High Line, Chelsea Market, Whitney Museum and Chelsea Piers, this self-managed cooperative is a collection of five floor-through residences. Guests of the building are welcomed by a common entry foyer adorned by a crystal chandelier, original wood banister and artwork. A great location, low monthly maintenance, basement laundry room and free storage further compliment the convenience of this home. Do not miss this opportunity to own a slice of history in one of the city's most exclusive neighborhoods!
