Townhouse living with apartment convenience, a beautiful refuge in the heart of the city. This pristine home has been fully re-imagined by WORKSTEAD and Rita Liefhebber. Located in a top-notch townhouse co-op, it comprises an imposing parlor floor, and two floors below that lead south onto one of West Chelsea’s most prized gardens. These beautifully landscaped South-facing gardens feature an enormous Weeping Willow Tree, also observed from the terrace off the kitchen. The enchanting sounds of birdsong make the vibrant city that beckons at your doorstep simply disappear.
Enter into the Parlor floor with its majestic ceiling heights and twin fireplaces. Large french-door style windows allow light to stream over the living and dining areas. A study/4th bedroom adjoins. On the south end of the parlor is a magnificent kitchen, expertly equipped with the best appliances including a large stainless steel Bertazzoni range, crisp white custom cabinetry and Pietra Cardosa countertops, a large plumbed pantry, and windowed powder room. The south-facing terrace off the kitchen makes this floor an entertainer’s dream.
Stairs lead below to the expansive Master bedroom with its spa-like en-suite bathroom and two walk-in closets, a second bedroom with two windows facing north, and a guest bathroom. A mudroom with gorgeous built-in under-stair cabinetry allows additional easy entrance from the building’s ground floor. A further flight of stairs leads you to what is now a TV/recreation room with wet bar that leads out onto the gardens, an additional bedroom and bathroom, and a luxuriously large laundry room. Both the recreation room and laundry room are easily reconfigurable as additional bedrooms.
Located in the heart of the West Chelsea Arts District, just moments from the Highline, Chelsea Market, and Hudson River Parks, not to mention the extraordinary Hudson Yards and Whole Foods a few minutes north, this home is surrounded by convenience, culture, cuisine, and couture. The Avenues School is a new and important neighborhood landmark.
