This two bedroom, two bath home presents a rare opportunity to live near the top of the famed London Terrace Towers, the epicenter of the wonderful Chelsea neighborhood. The apartment encompasses a perfect blend of pre-war architecture and modern sensibilities. Moreover, the luminous sunlight, expansive views and gracious terrace create a most unique residence.
From the moment one moves through the apartment foyer and beyond the arched doorway, it is the living room and adjoining terrace that immediately captivate all who enter. The south and west facing windows offer a panorama of vistas from downtown Manhattan to the Hudson River. With high beamed ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace, the charm of this room is only exceeded by the enticing terrace which is also ideal for entertaining. The terrace is a perfect venue to view the High Line and breath-taking sunsets over the river. It is equipped with a retractable awning and an irrigation system for plants and flowers. Adjacent to the living area is a windowed kitchen complete with its own pantry. The stainless steel appliances and Corian quartz countertops add a modern tone to this very functional space.
Opposite the living room is a large second bedroom with pocket doors that provide the ultimate in flexibility. The room is well suited as a guest bedroom or library and includes a hideaway office. The south facing windows create abundant light throughout the day. Next to this room is a windowed bathroom with traditional and tasteful fixtures, including a separate shower and bathtub.
Down a hallway that is outfitted with closets is the primary bedroom suite, a truly private aerie with corner windows. The eastern view overlooks the block-long private gardens of London Terrace while the southern window fills the room with further light. The suite includes a large walk-in closet, a sizable windowed bath and beamed ceilings.
Built in 1930, London Terrace Towers offers the ultimate in pre-war architectural details and a level of amenities that distinguish it from most others. The staff includes a full-time doorman, numerous porters and a resident manager. One of its most famed features is the half-Olympic sized pool in a windowed room surrounded by the original Craftsman tiles. There are also steam rooms and saunas, a landscaped roof deck, a laundry room, a bike room, and a private gym accessible with a small annual fee. Electricity and heating are included in the monthly maintenance. An adjacent 24-hour parking garage is also available through separate arrangement. London Terrace is located in the heart of Chelsea and all the vibrancy it has to offer. From the trendy art galleries and chic retail and dining establishments to Chelsea Market, Chelsea Piers and Hudson River Park, everything is here. And just a few blocks away are plenty of additional attractions in both the West Village to the south and Hudson Yards to the north.
