This masterfully redesigned West Chelsea Garden Duplex features soaring ceilings, dramatic windows and a private outdoor area perfect for entertaining. No detail has been overlooked as the owner has customized the entire home using the finest materials from around the world.
The double-height great room featuring 22-foot ceilings, sets the tone with floor-to-ceiling casement windows illuminating the space with golden western sunlight. Ceramic wood planks line the floors while an Italian marble wall installation is the backdrop for a custom entertainment system by Minotti with 85" built-in Television and cove lighting. Cascading down from above is a hand-blown glass light installation by Galilee.
The open kitchen has grey washed oak cabinetry and stunning brass hardware, top-of-the-line Miele appliances and a vented hood. Custom upgrades include a massive Carrara marble island with casual counter seating, as well as a more formal dining nook, allowing for both sophisticated entertaining and relaxed gatherings. Just outside, a lush garden spanning almost 1000 sq ft, comes complete with landscaped planter boxes, gas grill, outdoor heat lamp, and High Line views.
Ascend the illuminated stairway where the two serene bedrooms are separated by a dramatic catwalk with views overlooking the great room and outdoor garden. The master suite has a ton of natural light and a completely customized walk-in closet. The en-suite master bathroom is paved with heated Bianco Dolomiti flooring, while Italian marble walls surround a deep soaking bathtub, oversized walk-in shower and dual-sink vanity, all punctuated by brass Waterworks fixtures. The second bedroom is equally well-appointed with an en-suite bathroom and customized closet with additional closet space and a full-size washer/dryer in the hall nearby. Direct keyed elevator access completes this picture of luxury.
