This gracious prewar one bedroom is extraordinary because it has been carefully designed to enhance all the deco details that make this building so appealing while incorporating elegant and functional improvements. This first floor apartment is perfectly perched over the building’s common garden and presents a perfect view of the plantings and trees while still maintaining a great sense of privacy.
You enter a vestibule that leads to a generous foyer, large enough for a dining table. The Foyer ushers you into a generous sunken LR that features perfectly restored original Art Deco plaster details and southern exposure looking into the building’s striking common garden where Magnolia trees bloom outside your windows and give an air of “country in the city” quiet and calm.
The Kitchen has a large window, beautiful custom cabinetry, high end appliances, white quartz countertops and a Viking stove.
The bedroom has 2 exposures, one into the building’s common garden that allows you to wake up to birds, swaying leaves and is pin-drop quiet day and night.
The windowed bathroom was remodeled to maintain the original deco style with new subway tiles and fixtures.
The current owner has maintained the authentic Deco style of the apartment but made many refined improvements including custom closet doors and casings, restored original parquet floors, custom roll down screens, restored steel casement windows, thru wall A/C’s, all electrical and plumbing has been upgraded as well.
Rarely does one find an apartment so tranquil and private in the center of an exciting and centrally located neighborhood.
Must be seen to be fully appreciated.
Chelsea Gardens is a rare well preserved example of late 1930’s Art Deco architecture. There is a a full service staff including a 24 hour doorman and live in super, 24 hour laundry in the basement and additional storage available as well as a bike room. The buildings most striking feature, besides the vintage Art Deco lobbies, is the large common garden that is available to all residents to enjoy with multiple seating areas, tables and chairs. There are 4 entry lobbies around the garden giving the complex the feeling of a small village with a very neighborly community feeling that is very unique in the middle of busy Manhattan, especially half a block from 2 subway lines and a short walk to everything Chelsea has to offer including the High Line, Galleries and shopping.
Additional assessment of $233.17 per month until the end of 2023.
