We’ve already covered the fascinating fact that 337 West 20th Street isn’t your average cooperative building: This Chelsea townhouse-turned-co-op was formerly the bakery of Samuel Bath Thomas, the Englishman who introduced New Yorkers to the English Muffin in the early 1900s, earning it the nickname Muffin House–and the original ovens, though no longer working, remain built into the basement. While all other traces of the old bakery are gone, this Chelsea aerie on the top floor of the 1850s townhouse has plenty of historic charm–and the one-bedroom apartment, asking $950,000, comes with private deeded roof rights.
Custom-renovated with care, this one-bedroom home has 11-foot ceilings, an oversized skylight, a wood- burning fireplace and exposed brick as reminders of its pre-war charm. Four casement windows overlook the homes and treetops of the Chelsea Landmark District.
An efficient, trim and completely chic chef’s kitchen features custom walnut cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances like a vented DCS range, an oversized refrigerator and a washer-dryer.
A serene bedroom with a wall of closets is open to the spacious living room–which is easy to change for more privacy.
The 11-unit co-op shares a very pretty landscaped and cobblestone-paved courtyard. And there’s even more potential in the other direction: Deeded roof rights allow you to build more personal paradise above.
