While the etymology of the expression “suits to a T” isn’t clearly defined, there is no debating its meaning: when something is exactly as it should be or fits to perfection. Which is the ideal way to describe this rare T-shaped loft located in the Eagle Warehouse building at 532 West 22nd Street on a quiet and utterly charming Chelsea block full of art galleries.
Designed by 212box Architecture, this $5.9 million dream home was recently featured in Interior Design magazine. Windows at every turn drench the home with sunshine, and custom black steel and pebbled glass room separators transport the natural light throughout the open floor plan offering some level of privacy while still maintaining the loft aesthetic.
Exposed ceiling beams, reclaimed hardwood oak floors, and an imposing steel structural column all juxtapose beautifully with a materials palette one would expect from the firm responsible for the chic shoe boutiques of Christian Louboutin.
A large, open, renovated steel-grey Eggersmann kitchen with Viking range and hood, Miele dishwasher, twin Sub Zero fridge/freezers, and lengthy eating bar commands the home’s public space, sitting adjacent to both the expansive living room and a dining area which comfortably seats eight.
With a NUVO Media System and a top-of-the-line audio system delivering Dolby quality sound, it’s easy to see why this home is a dream for entertaining even if you don’t notice the Sub Zero two-zone, 132-bottle wine fridge hidden away in a storage area next to the kitchen.
The grandly-scaled master suite is outfitted with superb walk-in closets and a five-fixture en-suite bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms and full bathrooms separated at opposite ends of the apartment.
All of this lies within moments of the High Line, the new Whitney Museum, Chelsea Piers and the Meatpacking District; Hudson Yards just a few blocks to the north will house New York’s first Neiman Marcus and a plethora of exquisite boutiques, offices, cultural elements and restaurants.
