Five-story Chelsea townhouse with 22-foot ceilings renting for $22,000 a month
This massive, modern townhouse is now up for rent–furnished or unfurnished–in Chelsea, at 241 West 17th Street. The five-story elevator building, which holds six bedrooms, a private garage and a living room with 22-foot ceilings, is asking $22,000 a month. It even has a finished basement, which could be used as a gym, wine cellar or playroom. The property previously tried its hand asking $11.5 million two years ago but did not sell. With all its modern, luxurious finishes, this definitely isn’t your average New York townhouse.
The most striking space of the house is the double-height living room, with its 22-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, a wood-burning fireplace, and southern light through the floor-to-ceiling windows. From this level, French doors also lead out to a Juliet balcony. The dining room and kitchen is actually located on the floor above, looking down onto the living room.
The open kitchen has a granite center island, cherry cabinetry and a temperature-controlled wine fridge.
The home is so large, you’ve got room for a second living room. This space looks to be a more casual den.
The upper floors are dedicated to the six bedrooms. The fourth floor holds three high-ceilinged bedrooms, one with a large terrace, another with a fireplace, and both with full bathrooms. The top floor is completely taken up by the master suite, which boasts arched windows, a wood-burning fireplace and a massive, customized walk-in closet. The attached master bathroom, decked out in marble and limestone, has underfloor heating, a custom double vanity, sky-lit open shower and deep soaking tub.
One flight above the master bedroom is a multi-level roof garden, designed for entertaining guests.
The private garage opens with remote-controlled sliding glass and aluminum doors. There’s also a separate street entrance leading to a guest apartment with a kitchenette and bath. The modern facade is definitely unique–do you think it can command the hefty $22,000/month price tag?
