This Chelsea loft belongs to a chef, food stylist and cookbook author–so you better believe the kitchen is going to impress. The 1,600-square-foot apartment, once a gritty live/work loft at 236 West 26th Street, has been renovated with chef-friendly details over the years. According to the listing, “The loft had been a cooking school in one of its reincarnations and looks like it.” The 22-foot-long kitchen is decked out with industrial cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and tons of counter space, which is lined in Carrara marble. After previously hitting the market in 2006 for $1.698 million–it looks like it never sold–it’s back up for grabs at $2.249 million.

Sprawling over 1,600 square feet, there’s a massive great room with a 42-foot wall of windows and 11-foot beamed ceilings. Polished concrete floors, lot-line windows with the original hardware, and the large entryway door are all original to the building. Known as the Capitol Building, it was originally built for a furrier.

The industrial chic kitchen is decked out with details that’ll make any cook drool. There’s a 30-inch stainless steel Wolf stove, B and B Italia kitchen cabinets, 36-inch Subzero fridge, large farmhouse stainless kitchen sink, and tons of counter space alongside the Carrara marble counter. The 12-foot island is a vintage, 19th century oak drafting table.

The master bedroom has a row of windows running the expanse of the room plus a 15-foot-long walk in closet running the length of the bedroom.

There are two bathrooms and only one bedroom. Though it’s a one-bedroom apartment, there’s enough space to carve out more interior storage, an area for a home office, or a second bedroom space.

The brick building, constructed in 1925, has since been converted to 25 cooperative apartments. (Here’s a look at another that hit the market back in 2015.) For the chef/aspiring buyer of this pad, the listing notes that building is within walking distance to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Fairway.
