We know every broker uses the word “charming” to describe their listing, but this co-op apartment at 337 West 20th Street, in Chelsea, really is. It is located in the Muffin House, a building where the Thomas family originally baked English muffins in the late 1800s. Now it’s a co-op, located on a lovely and quiet residential block, that has eleven units, three of which are in the carriage house. The co-op also boasts an interior cobblestone courtyard, lined with hydrangeas, that leads back to this tucked-away carriage house apartment. Are you charmed yet?
Here’s that oh-so-charming entrance. The unit in question is located on the top floor of the carriage house and has one bedroom plus a modest living room. A large skylight in the living room brings in lots of light and compliments the original wood-beamed ceilings and eucalyptus hardwood floors. From the French windows, you have views of the treetops.
The kitchen is located right off the living room and looks renovated. There’s another skylight, custom maple cabinetry, slate floors, and nice stainless steel appliances. Appliances even include a 26-bottle, temperature-controlled wine fridge.
The master bedroom has its original wooden beams much like the living room. Floor-to-ceiling closets provide a nice amount of storage space.
From the living room, a tall ladder leads you up to the roof deck. It’s landscaped with flowers and herbs, surrounded by trees to create privacy, and large enough to carve out several peaceful nooks and crannies. Plus, you get a view of the courtyard down below. The history of the building, its location, and an apartment with such a great outdoor space… all of it makes for a pretty nice package in Chelsea. Now all we need is that $1.3 million.
