One of a kind, superbly renovated and brilliantly reimagined Zen studio loft/convertible Junior 1 bedroom with a bonus sleep loft and work from home area, located on the Parlor Floor in a classic, boutique brownstone with condo-like rules on one of the most beautiful and highly coveted tree-lined Seminary Blocks in West Chelsea.

It's the perfect apartment for both domestic and international buyers seeking authentic Old New York brownstone charm with modern conveniences. A coop, run with condo-like flexibility with a simple purchase process (no board package) and a very flexible sublet policy, makes this a perfect full-time residence, pied--terre, or investment property.

This dramatic loft-like apartment features original exposed brick, oak hardwood floors throughout and ceilings that reach over 13 feet at their highest point. The large functional sleep loft easily accommodates a queen or king-sized mattress. This bonus sleep loft, rarely found in a studio apartment, and if found, rarely as large and functional, overlooks the living area.

Perfect for overnight and overflow guests, it is reached by a custom built stairway made from solid white oak reclaimed wood. There is also a large and deep closet/storage area in the sleep loft; perfect for seasonal storage and suitcases.

The ultra-modern open chef's kitchen, with a cascade waterfall Silestone countertop breakfast bar and stone tile backsplash, has ample custom cabinetry and is outfitted with a Bertazzoni cooktop and oven, a Blomberg dishwasher and an LG washer/dryer combo.

The kitchen opens to the expansive and dramatic living area with its tall ceilings, exposed brick, and large picture window on the far wall, a focal point of the loft, which overlooks trees and gardens, and provides ample light to the space. Tucked into the far corner of the living area by the window is a custom wall bed with a queen-sized mattress.

The exquisitely renovated spa-like bathroom features a deep soaking tub, spa stone flooring and rain shower massage jets. Half of the entry hallway leading into the apartment is perfect for displaying curated art; the second half of the hallway is outfitted with a wall of closets, softly and chicly enclosed with floor to ceiling white linen drapes, further enhancing the airy, zen-like atmosphere of this pin-drop quiet loft.

405 West 21st Street is a boutique 12-unit co-op in a classic circa 1852 Italianate brownstone with an elegant front stoop in the heart of the Chelsea Historic District. The building allows gifting, parents buying for children, co-purchasing, pied-a-terres, and is pet-friendly. Free bike storage is available and storage bins are permitted in the basement.

The location is prime, surrounded by the best of Chelsea, Hudson Yards, the Meatpacking District and the West Village. The High Line, Hudson River Park, Chelsea Piers and Equinox are all nearby. Nearby Chelsea Market, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's provide plentiful culinary options, while the Whitney and Rubin museums, as well as the innumerable art galleries provide a feast for the eyes. Close to the A/C/E, 1/2 and PATH trains, and multiple Citi-Bike stations.
