No two ways about it. The blue tinted exterior of the Chelsea Modern, sitting quite majestically at 447 West 18th Street, certainly gets your attention. All angles and edges, with windows that open outward parallel to the façade, it’s not quite like anything else in an area fast becoming known for its interesting and celebrated architecture.
The same could be said for this ridiculously sumptuous penthouse duplex. The exterior of this home will grab your attention in a very different way – namely, three beautifully landscaped terraces seamlessly connecting you to sweeping river views to the south and breathtaking city views to the north. And with elegant touches such as a formal dining area, a luxurious daybed, intimate seating area and an outdoor kitchen, the terrace space is literally a home unto itself.
But we think the interior of this spectacular residence has plenty to bring you inside every now and again (well, we know the New York winters will!).
The sunny, open and streamlined kitchen has plenty of counter seating and features a six-burner Viking Range, double Viking ovens, two dishwashers, a wine refrigerator, and an extra large stainless refrigerator. A large formal dining room and quaint eating area in one of the two living rooms means you can change your dining view almost as often as you change your menu.
With sunlight pouring in from wonderfully oversized windows throughout its nearly 4,000 square feet of perfection, this 5-bedroom,5-bath home offers the ideal combination of indoor and outdoor living. Just take a look at our gallery below if you still need to be convinced. Or contact Stribling agents Jane Gardner and Mary Ellen Cashman for an up close and personal look around.
