This two-bedroom co-op occupies a full floor in West Chelsea‘s Fitzroy Townhouses at 440 West 23rd Street, a grand row of converted 19th century Italianate homes–once owned by Clement Clark Moore–in the neighborhood’s historic district. A loft-like open layout frames a balance of 21st century comfort and historic details like high ceilings, hardwood floors and a natural stone mantel above one of the apartment’s of two fireplaces. A south-facing private terrace adds the luxury of outdoor space to this urban refuge.
