It is rare that such a truly special one-of-a-kind home becomes available. This sophisticated and thoughtfully designed property underwent a remarkable high-end designer renovation, maximizing every aspect to curate the most comfortable and luxurious use of space. Located on one of the best blocks in Manhattan, this picturesque, tree-lined West Chelsea enclave is home to the Fitzroy townhouses, built in 1899 in the Anglo Italianate style. Encompassing the top two floors of a townhouse, and bathed in light with garden views that create a private, treehouse-like feel from every room, this home enjoys treetop views from all windows and from both decks. Benefited by building height restrictions in this landmark district, both the northern and southern decks offer expansive views that would otherwise have been hindered.
High ceilings, a wall of windows, newly-refinished hardwood flooring, and a general sense of serenity greet you as you enter the home, which was gut renovated by Moschella + Roberts. Custom woodwork in every room, custom crown moldings and baseboards, a working wood-burning fireplace with antique marble mantel, motorized shades, and custom steel windows and doors are just a few of the refined details. Additionally, the home offers a three zoned central air system, completely indoor/outdoor wired AV system, a vented washer and dryer, and an abundance of custom storage, including over 80-square-feet of crawl space.
Meticulously constructed, the chef’s kitchen boasts ample storage in gorgeous custom cabinetry, a Wolf range, Subzero fridge, two Fisher Paykel drawer dishwashers, a Dornbracht kitchen sink fixture, as well as additional custom cabinetry between kitchen and living room, which provides flexibility for an open or closed kitchen, and works well for entertaining (functioning as a bar). The large primary bedroom is replete with custom closets, oversized windows which frame idyllic townhouse views, and an elegant en-suite spa-like bath. Both bathrooms boast custom marble flooring, and counters, with high-end nickel fixtures. The second level features a second bedroom or den with walls of glass on either side, that leads to two large terraces. Each offers breathtaking views in both directions, and has the added benefit of irrigation and built-in storage.
This super prime West Chelsea location, historically referred to as “Millionaire’s Row,” is the epitome of NYC charm and grandeur. Ideally located in close proximity to the Highline, Chelsea Piers, local galleries, the Hudson River, parks, and some of the city’s best shopping and dining. Convenient to many public transportation options, this well-run co-op has incredibly low maintenance, zero debt, is pet friendly, and allows for pied-a-terre use.
