$675K Chelsea studio features fabulous design and excellent amenities
Located in the classic 1930s Chelsea residential complex at 405 West 23rd Street known as London Terrace Towers, what might otherwise be a nondescript alcove studio has been transformed with a stylish interior redesign. From a sleek custom built-in murphy bed to an on-trend mint-green kitchen, the compact co-op gets major style points. And the building offers amenities–from a pool to parking–that might be even harder to resist.
What the listing calls an “interior designer’s passion project” gets loads of south-facing light through double thermal-pane casement windows. A large living area is framed by white walls and a smoky-finished hardwood floor. A custom-designed murphy bed makes this attractive home easy to inhabit both night and day.
The windowed kitchen is the picture of modern style, with marble countertops, pale mint cabinetry and a clean subway tile backsplash. Custom upper cabinetry provides plenty of storage for both display items and less-attractive tools, and designer lighting keeps boredom at bay.
The bathroom features classic black-and-white tile flooring, subway tiled walls and a deep cast iron soaking tub.
The amenities available to residents at London Terrace Towers are just as attractive: The building features a half-Olympic size indoor heated swimming pool, a planted and fully furnished roof deck, a fitness center with yoga classes, a sauna and a steam room, 24-hour lobby attendants and porters, a live-in super, storage and an indoor garage. The building allows pieds-a-terre, guarantors, co-purchasing, parents buying and unlimited subletting after one year of ownership.
