This “character-rich,” loft penthouse at 244 West 23rd Street offers stylish downtown living with a great Chelsea address that puts you right next to the Highline, art galleries, and everything else the vibrant neighborhood has to offer. But if you don’t feel like venturing out, there’s a huge library to keep you occupied. The one bedroom co-op filled with prewar details was recently renovated and just hit the market for $1.25 million.

Huge, northeast-facing windows in the double-height living area bring in plenty of light and views of the arched facade. A full wall of built-in shelves creates a dramatic backdrop ideal for a book lover’s collection, while a rolling ladder provides easy access.

Behind the stairs, a small but “efficiently scaled” kitchen features new Corian counters and cabinets, a turquoise tile backsplash, and a suite of Bosch appliances. A powder room rounds out this floor, making entertaining easy.
