136 West 24th Street was originally built as horse stables in the 1890s for patrons of the historic Ladies Mile shopping district. Today it’s quite the stunning loft apartment, boasting thick wooden beams, 10-foot-high tin ceilings, three bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. And its Chelsea locale is right in the heart of the neighborhood, an easy walk to both Madison Square Park and the Highline. After the co-op last sold in 2011 for $2.45 million to the playwright Martha Pichey (mother to actor Rafi Gavron), it has hit the market for $2.8 million.
There is tons of space in this sprawling L-shaped co-op. A large service elevator, with finished oak flooring, opens directly into the loft and leads to the great room with a dedicated space for living and dining. Then there’s a storage area, casual den, and a library with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a moving ladder.
The open kitchen looks out over the living and dining spaces. It’s been upgraded with a Viking stove and Subzero fridge.
Then you’ve got three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, all lined with tin ceilings. Two of the bedrooms do not have windows, but each has plenty of closet space. Most of the apartment’s light comes in through south-facing windows, which look directly out to birch trees in the courtyard below.
This co-operative is small, only seven units over five stories, and doesn’t have much in the way of amenities. This is the only apartment in the building on the market.
