Perfectly patina-ed Chelsea artist’s loft asks $2.75M

April 25, 2018

Sometimes an “authentic artist’s loft” is exactly that. That’s the case with this fabulously patina-ed co-op at 139 West 17th Street in Chelsea, which is as much known for vanishing artists’ lofts as it is for art galleries. The $2.75 million listing starts out, “Bring your architect…” The space has as much need for transformation as it has vintage charm. Its current owners, a creative couple with a passion for culture and design, have made it their own, and it could be the perfect canvas for the next owner to do the same. The artist-in-residence has lived here for 40 years–we’re guessing it was converted to a co-op during that time, as this is the first time it has been on the market.

The 2,500-square-foot loft is currently being used as a three-bedroom home, but as alternate floor plans suggest, an open loft gives you plenty of options. There are lots of original details, including ceilings of nearly 11 feet (some clad in antique tin), exposed brick walls, columns, and wood beams. Oversized south-facing windows keep the sun shining. The original manual freight elevator is in the process of being converted to an automatic key-lock elevator.

Yards of white walls await your own art collection, and there’s currently a room dedicated to art storage. The current bedrooms are spacious and sunny, and there’s plenty of room to turn that extra space into closet space–or more bedrooms for family living.

The pet-friendly co-op offers a common roof terrace and laundry, and there’s storage space available in the basement.
