231 West 21st Street, 4C
Photographed for Dwell Magazine, this truly special pre-war jewel-box two bedroom is bright, charming and voluminous.
Reminiscent of a private Parisian atelier, this elegant pre-war residence in the heart of Chelsea features a 23-foot wide great room with separate living and dining areas, perched over private gardens. Oversized windows flood the 10-foot ceilinged apartment with sunlight, revealing wonderful plaster walls fresh with Farrow & Ball paint, top-to-bottom decorative moldings, a slate-mantel fireplace, whitewashed hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling Vitsoe bookcases, and designer chandelier and light fixtures. The renovated and windowed open kitchen features Bertazzoni range, F&P refrigerator and Miele dishwasher, marble surfaces and an island perfect for entertaining. The bath is richly appointed with new tile-work, Toto toilet and shower fittings by Grohe. The use of space is efficient and clever with custom hall walk-in and bedroom closet systems, all by California Closets, and a transformable wall bed with table by Resource Furniture in the secondary bedroom. This is a one-of-a-kind, soulful home blending the best of old and new New York.
Centrally situated on West 21st between Seventh and Eighth, 223-231 West 21st Street is a boutique co-op made up of two elevator pre-war buildings with a shared outdoor patio. It has solid financials with low maintenance, laundry room, live-in super and both bike and storage cabinets (for a small fee). Spotless renovated common areas and an upgraded elevator elevate the living experience. Dogs are respectfully not permitted.
The location is superb: you are just steps to the C/E/1 trains, Whole Foods, TJ’s and Forager’s, and the High Line, Hudson River Park, Chelsea Market, Chelsea Piers, Chelsea Waterside Park, Meatpacking, Silicon Alley and Hudson Yards are all within short walking distance.
