Asking $1.5M, this classic Chelsea co-op is full of Asian influences

The listing for this Chelsea one-bedroom says it “delivers sensations of a tranquil Zen Garden.” From the hand-carved, fern-leaf motif window shutters and doors to the woven bamboo bedroom ceiling to the hand-painted woven fabric wall coverings, the 875-square-foot home mixes its classic co-op details with unique Asian-inspired decor, all of which was envisioned by designer Paul Ochs. It’s located at 465 West 23rd Street, the iconic London Terrace Towers, and is asking $1,495,000.

The bespoke details begin as soon as you enter. The foyer is adorned with leather flooring and a beautiful wallpaper that highlights the sculpted door-frame moldings.

In the corner living/dining room, all of the windows boast the aforementioned hand-carved shutters. You’ll also find gilded silver leaf beamed ceilings, built-in shelving, and custom chair rails that outline more custom built-in storage.

Off the dining room is the kitchen. Though it’s a bit small, it has everything you need, including a chalkboard front paneled Subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. It’s been designed with stone counters, a tile backsplash, wallpaper that looks like bamboo, and handsome cabinetry with glass-front doors.

Though the bedroom is a vibrant red, it still feels very tranquil. More of the hand-carved shutters are on display here, and the same motif is translated to the many closet doors. The finely woven fabric wall coverings are hand-painted with a bamboo design that’s accented by multi-layered lacquer trim. The woven bamboo ceiling is definitely the highlight of the space.

Stretching between 9th and 10th Avenues, London Tower Terrace was built in 1930. Residents enjoy an indoor heated pool set below a soaring vaulted ceiling, steam rooms and saunas in the locker rooms, a 3,000-square-foot fitness center operated by the Wright Fit, a planted and furnished roof deck with skyline and Hudson River views, and a 24-hour attended lobby.

Pets, co-purchasing, gifting, and pied a terre’s are all allowed; unlimited subleasing is allowed after one-year of ownership.
