Chelsea living on a beautiful tree-lined street feels even better when the living is being done in an utterly charming pastel-tinted townhouse like the one at 353 West 22nd Street. Surrounded by equally lovely townhouse neighbors and near the High Line, the West Village and all of Chelsea, it’s a great downtown location with tons of curb appeal. The apartment itself is also nothing like the average cookie-cutter rental space. With lots of warm wood and brick, impossibly high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling casement windows and a gem of a private garden, this $7,000/month two-bedroom bi-level rental may be on the small side but it gets points for charm and outdoor space.

Located on the garden floor of an historic and particularly lovely Chelsea townhouse, this cozy (what looks to be, as there’s no floor plan) railroad apartment has double-height ceilings, tall townhouse windows and a bath and a half. Though the listing is offering two bedrooms, one of them–on the upper level with a loft that looks out over the living room–looks pretty tiny.

On the plus side, the living room opens out onto a large private back yard gathering spot, furnished and landscaped with stone pavers, plantings and a whitewashed fence.

The galley kitchen looks efficient and well-equipped, enhanced by either marble countertops or a good quality (and probably far more durable) imitation.

The main bedroom is good-sized, with storage options.

The upstairs bedroom looks pretty cramped and might be better off as a home office or guest room (provided you have skinny guests). An open sitting area in front of the space is definitely a plus, though.

But what a pretty face this garden hideaway has.
