Although Chelsea and the neighborhoods surrounding the High Line may be known for their architecturally innovative new residential buildings, the historic row of Italianate-style 19th-century Fitzroy Townhouses are just as much a part of the area’s story. This two-bedroom duplex at 442 West 23rd Street is a stunning reflection of the co-op’s townhouse elegance combined with of-the-moment designer dazzle. A thorough renovation has bestowed the 1,600-square-foot home, asking $2,898,000, with two levels of Paris-in-Chelsea appeal.
