Right from the beginning you’ll feel fortunate–if you can swing the $8,495 a month rent–living in this charming townhouse condominium at 360 West 19th Street: You’ll only have one neighbor, as the building only contains two units. Two sun-filled upper floors hold the standard townhouse bounty of three bedrooms above a spacious living area, plus a private roof deck, all on a pretty Chelsea block.
A skylight does a great job keeping the cool custom floating staircase awash in sunshine. Underfoot are refinished oak floors framed by exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and two wood-burning fireplaces. Renovated bathrooms and a multi-zone split-system AC and supplemental heating system keep things convenient and cozy all year ’round.
Not as season-proof–but much more fun–is a large furnished private roof terrace with fabulous views.
A stylishly designed open eat-in kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a fireplace, tin ceilings and custom cabinetry. Oversized windows mean more light and more views–this time of the neighboring gardens and streetscape below.
Upstairs are three bedrooms including a large and lovely master, and a full bath; it looks as if a second spacious bedroom is being used as an office/den. There’s a washer and dryer in the unit, too, and storage space in the basement.
