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.
