This one-bedroom co-op at 250 West 15th Street in Chelsea shows off its considered design and just enough of an of-the-moment look and laid-back 1970s feel for us to almost overlook its compact size and slightly odd layout. The turn-key apartment is priced to sell at less than a million–and a wood-burning fireplace with an exposed brick hearth and drawers galore can’t hurt its chances.
Highlights include a retro-style SMEG fridge set in a modern timber kitchen, a large tiled bath, and dark stained hardwood floors throughout.
The brick hearth anchors a living area that’s large enough for dinner parties and intimate enough for dinner dates.
The bedroom is warm and tranquil, in keeping with its surroundings. There are plenty of textiles, adding both softness and a chance to bring in color and pattern. There’s also another fireplace in here.
The boutique elevator building offers residents a live-in super and a laundry room; the building’s entry, lobby and hallways have been recently renovated.
While some might call this leaving the best for last, it’s worth adding that this charming Chelsea home extends the welcome mat for pieds-a-terre, parental assisted buying, co-purchasing, guarantors, and gifting.
