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.
The great room’s generous size allows it to be organized into zones for daily living. A visual anchor is a carved marble wood-burning fireplace flanked by custom millwork.
A custom chef’s kitchen with Baltic birch cabinetry, Corian countertops and professional grade appliances overlooks the great room.
The terrace enjoys southern sunlight and the nature of surrounding gardens, perfect for morning coffee, outdoor dining or evening entertaining. It’s equipped with electricity and water for gardening and staying connected with the world outside.
Located opposite the living area, two bedrooms have large windows with Citi-Quiet inserts to maintain tranquility. In the spacious master bedroom is the home’s second fireplace, a custom-outfitted dressing area and a renovated bath with radiant heat flooring and a Zuma soaking tub.
The smaller second bedroom is currently being used as an office/study with custom built-in desks, plenty of storage and room for a daybed or sofa.
Throughout the home you’ll find a ductless split-zone air conditioning system, upgraded lighting, wiring for audio, industrial grade installation for window treatments, a washer/dryer and custom-built storage.
