A rambling, landscaped private garden with wisteria, ivy, and mature trees is a prize that often comes with townhouse living. This duplex co-op at 326 West 22nd Street, asking $3,200,000, offers that rare urban oasis in the middle of Chelsea, without the hassle and expense of owning an entire house. What’s more, this beautifully-designed duplex within an 1840s Greek Revival townhome has a wood-burning fireplace in nearly every room, so it’s just as dreamy in the indoor days of winter.

The verdant, secluded backyard is a definite highlight, with its hanging grape vines and wisteria, English ivy, and terraced gardens. It’s easy to forget that you’re surrounded by one of Manhattan’s most vibrant city neighborhoods.

The main entry accesses a formal parlor. Framed by 11-foot ceilings and tall windows overlooking the historic townhouses of 22nd Street, this California-modern-meets-brownstone space is anchored by a wood-burning fireplace topped by a wall-sized mirror.

Adjacent is a party-ready butler’s pantry with a SubZero wine cooler and refrigerated beverage drawers and a bar sink. Above is a custom teak-lined ceiling.

A sprawling kitchen features a fully-integrated Viking refrigerator, a huge pantry, and bluestone worktops. Anchoring this chef- and family-friendly space is a rustic wood-burning fireplace set above the kitchen peninsula, awaiting pizza and roasted marshmallows. ‘

At one end of the light-filled room, bay windows overlook the garden. Adjacent is a dining area with room for at least 10. Also on this floor is a garden-facing bedroom with two closets.

On the home’s lower level, a roomy primary suite is surrounded by bay windows that look out onto the garden. Within, a brick-framed wood-burning fireplace is surrounded by built-in shelving. The en-suite bath features a mix of marble, bluestone and glass. There is also a walk-in closet and a separate laundry room.

Enter the garden from the bedroom via a glass door to enjoy the flagstone patio and grill surrounded by greenery. There’s also a deck off the parlor floor for outdoor dining beneath a red Japanese maple and an old viburnum tree.

At the front of the garden floor is a third bedroom with an en-suite Jacuzzi bath and two huge closets. In addition to the apartment’s many closets, there is shared basement storage and a bike room.
