Atop a 1909 former button factory building at 139 West 19th Street in Chelsea, this penthouse co-op, asking $4,498,000, features traditional loft architecture with the rare luxury of a 1,600 square foot private landscaped urban garden. The rooftop space is as perfect for outdoor entertaining on a grand scale as it is for enjoying a quiet sunset.

The home’s pre-war architecture is enhanced by a thoroughly modern renovation that adds convenience and ease of daily living. 21st-century features include a central HVAC system, full-pane custom oversized windows, and in-unit laundry, plus the luxury of indoor and outdoor storage.

A private elevator landing leads to a great room framed by 13-foot ceilings, 10-foot-high windowsm exposed brick walls, and a wood-burning fireplace. Original white oak flooring has been restored with a subtle sheen.

A contemporary dream kitchen goes big in every sense of the word. A 14-foot-long honed Carrara marble-wrapped island anchors the space, which features ribbed industrial glass and blackened steel cabinetry, and a polished concrete floor. A suite of Gaggenau appliances includes a six-burner vented range, double ovens, two wine fridges, and two dishwashers.

The king-sized primary suite conceals a custom dressing room behind a handsome burled walnut pocket door. The windowed primary bath features a custom walnut and Corian vanity and an oversized, windowed shower room.

The second bedroom has open views and a large s custom closet. A second windowed bath is lined with classic white subway tile.

The crown jewel of this modern/classic loft is just two steps up: A huge, multi-level, fully-irrigated garden paradise paved in honed bluestone. Features include a mahogany-latticed dining pavilion, mature specimen trees, and perennial wildflowers and grasses. In every direction are cinematic views, from the magical New York City skyline to equally stunning sunsets.
