As the weather chills, a nice big fireplace starts looking pretty appealing. That’s the main attraction in the double-height living room of this two-bedroom condo at 121 West 20th Street, in Chelsea. The spacious pad, with 1,642 square feet, hit the market this fall for $2.595 million and now is down to $2.395 million. (It last sold in 2004 for $1.15 million.) It’s got some quirky details over two floors, including the original columns of the historic brick building still in tact.
The most striking space is the double-height living room, where ceilings reach 13 feet. Besides the massive gas fireplace, the room also comes with a juliet balcony to walk out onto.
The living room flows into a sleek open kitchen. It boasts a big breakfast bar topped with marble countertops and dark wood cabinetry to offset the fancy stainless steel appliances.
The master bedroom, which has a regular-sized closet as well as a walk-in closet, is located on the lower level of the apartment.
The second bedroom and den are located on the lofted second level… you can see how the columns have been integrated into both rooms. From the den, you can look down onto the living room and that stone fireplace. If you dare to leave the cozy apartment and out into the cold, you’re only a five minute walk to Madison Square Park or a ten minute walk west to the High Line.
