The first thing you’ll notice about this 1,700-square-foot Chelsea loft at 121 West 20th Street is the current owner’s fabulous hoard of classic movie memorabilia. The listing tells us that it’s been used as a live/work/gallery space to show off the “impressive pop culture collection of Elizabeth Taylor, Billie Holiday, Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret and David Bowie, just to name a few.” Then you’ll notice that for the ask of $2.2 million, you’re getting lots and lots of wall space for a gallery-worthy collection of your own. The “work” part of that equation is covered by a home office that hovers above the main living space, which is really not a bad commute from the bedroom or kitchen below.
But there’s more than walls and ceilings to consider: There are trompe l’oeil painted columns, a custom-built enclosed bar and a flexible floor plan “open to endless possibilities.”
On the ground floor you’ll find a central living and dining space with 14-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace, and oversized south-facing windows.
A separate kitchen has lots of cabinet space and a pass-through to the dining area.
Also on the lower floor, you’ll find the home’s large master suite offering a dressing area and an ensuite master bath with separate Jacuzzi tub, shower and double vanity (there is also a powder room off the entry foyer on this floor).
An open staircase leads upstairs to a loft area home office when it’s time to get down to business; there’s also a storage area up here. The space is open to the living space below and gets plenty of light. If you’re not the work-at-home type–or you just need another bedroom–you can convert this space into a second master suite.
This classic loft condominium building offers a part-time doorman, a full-time super, storage and a roof deck.
