Although Chelsea and the neighborhoods surrounding the High Line may be known for their architecturally innovative new residential buildings, the historic row of Italianate-style 19th-century Fitzroy Townhouses are just as much a part of the area’s story. This two-bedroom duplex at 442 West 23rd Street is a stunning reflection of the co-op’s townhouse elegance combined with of-the-moment designer dazzle. A thorough renovation has bestowed the 1,600-square-foot home, asking $2,898,000, with two levels of Paris-in-Chelsea appeal.

Pale chevron-patterned hardwood floors, 14-foot ceilings, and walls of oversized windows frame the home’s main living and entertaining space. A working fireplace and delicate designer pendant lighting set the living room aglow after dark.

French doors flood the space with daylight and open onto a south-facing terrace overlooking verdant gardens. Among the apartment’s fabulous design details: A powder room dressed in Hermès toile wallpaper.

A guest-ready dining area stands adjacent to a sleek open kitchen, where dark slate-hued cabinetry is highlighted by bold Saint Laurent marble. Chef-approved appliances include a Gaggenau cooktop and oven, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a Miele dishwasher.

Accessed through a set of retractable doors, the home’s main-floor bedroom suite boasts a fireplace and a walk-in closet. The en-suite bath features a soaking tub and rain shower beneath Japanese-style wood-trimmed ceilings.

Down a glass-enclosed staircase is another bedroom suite with rows of closets and a washer-dryer. This chamber’s private bath features an emerald-green-tiled walk-in shower.
