Right in the heart of Chelsea, a neighborhood known for its art galleries, is this $2.499 million apartment at 143 West 20th Street, being marketing for art lovers. The two-bedroom co-op was gut renovated by its developer-owner, who created a flexible, open floorplan with plenty of opportunities to hang artwork. It’s been smartly designed with custom everything — from the china cabinets in the dining room to the Murphy bed in the second bedroom.
The lofty space is distinguished by 11-foot ceilings and two of the building’s original columns. Everything’s been specially designed in this open living and dining space, including the custom-built china pantry and the bookshelves.
Even the doorway that hides the bathroom from the living room looks specially designed. We love how well it blends into the living space, looking more like a design feature than a bathroom door.
The cabinetry in the bathroom ties into the kitchen cabinetry. The kitchen was also designed with porcelain tile floors, quartz countertops with matching backsplashes, a massive island and walk-in pantry.
The master bedroom has lots of closet space, lots more artwork, and its own bathroom with heated floors and a glass-enclosed shower. (Both bathrooms also feature automatic bidet toilets, in case you’re wondering.)
This room is configured as a convertible office that transforms into a guest bedroom with the presence of a Murphy bed. It’s surrounded, of course, by custom built-in closets and cabinets, as well as leather-bound, custom-built pocket walls. The theme of this apartment? Everything is custom made. We’re not surprised a developer had a hand in creating it.
