This Chelsea townhouse at 332 West 20th Street is being sold off by a power couple: Adriana Cisneros, the CEO of Grupo Cisneros, a Venezuelan media and entertainment company, and her husband Nicholas Griffin, a novelist. They bought the pad in 2004 for $4.005 million and have put it on the market for nearly double, $7.85 million. The single-family, four-bedroom townhouse is decked out with fireplaces and a modern kitchen, not to mention a wall of bookshelves that would impress any writer.
Fireplaces and mantlepieces line the parlor floor, which holds a large foyer and living room. 11-foot ceilings and light flooding in from the front windows give this floor a open, spacious feel.
The ground-floor of the home has been separated into two distinct spaces. The front area is a dining room and adjacent kitchen, which has been completely modernized and decked out in white cabinetry. In the rear there’s a casual, bookshelf-lined dining space. This charming room, sure to impress book lovers, leads out to the back garden through three French doors.
Here’s a look out to the lovely paved garden, which has been landscaped to feel like a private green oasis.
The third floor holds the master bedroom, with its own Carrera marble bathroom with a soaking tub and rainfall shower. A large office, which could be used as an additional bedroom, is right next door.
There are three more bedrooms and two bathrooms on the fourth floor.
The townhouse even comes with room to grow: according to the listing, there are over 1,100 square feet of unused air rights to build something like a penthouse. But we think it’s plenty charming how it is, with a prime Chelsea location just about a block from the High Line.
