Famed Photographer David LaChapelle Lists His Stunning Chelsea Home for $2.5M

July 16, 2015

Photographer David LaChapelle, best known for shooting everyone from Madonna to Michael Jackson to Leonardo Dicaprio and Lady Gaga in some seriously weird situations, has just listed his West Chelsea co-op at 427 West 21st Street for $2.469 million. Surprisingly, unlike the artist’s audacious pop-surreal works, his apartment is far more subdued, sporting a very classic look with pops of color and patterns selectively emerging throughout the home’s historic interiors.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom home is a massive and bright beauty situated along one of Chelsea’s prettiest streets, the neighborhood’s Seminary Block. Inside the floor-through 19th century parlor residence you’ll find 12-foot high ceilings, hand-carved crown molding, French doors, a bay window, floor-to-ceiling windows, three wood-burning fireplaces, etched glass door inlays, stained oak floors and medallion-wrapped light fixtures.

There’s also a very large 8-by-14-foot terrace to complement the home’s generous proportions and its modern chef’s kitchen; the “ideal space for indoor-outdoor entertaining,” says the listing.

LaChapelle originally purchased the home back in 2011 for $1,739,500. He also has a home in Los Angeles, and briefly quit the business a several years ago to live off the land in Maui.
