A two-bedroom condo in Chelsea once owned by boy band star Lance Bass hit the market this week for $2.5 million, as first reported by the New York Post. Located in celebrity-magnet Chelsea Mercantile, the renovated condo loft at 252 Seventh Avenue measures just over 1,300 square feet. The NSYNC member bought the apartment for $1.49 million in 2010; current owner Ellen Kroner picked it up in 2013 for $2.13 million.
The open floorplan of the living and dining area provides a nice flow between rooms, as well as making entertaining a breeze. The rooms feature wide-plank mahogany stained floors and 11-foot ceilings, giving the feel of a much larger space.
The kitchen is decked out with state-of-the-art appliances, including a Bertazoni stove, Bosch dishwasher, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. A discreet stacked washer-dryer is found within the cabinets.
The master bedroom comes with a useful wall of built-in storage, as well as a custom-fitted closet. The floor of the en-suite bathroom boasts a unique marble mosaic tile floor, with its walls donned in quartz. A closer look reveals a limestone bench in the shower and an electric toilet.
The home office, currently configured as a guest suite, sits at the back of the house and comes with a Murphy bed. This room includes its own bathroom, with a Jacuzzi and electric toilet to match.
Amenities at the Chelsea Mercantile include a renovated lobby, common roof deck, and a fitness center. The building has attracted celebrities, including Katie Holmes and Fran Lebowitz, due to its underground garage and high-tech security system.
