If you value location and like exposed brick, wood beams and skylights, this $650,000 Chelsea pad at 127 West 15th Street just might be the answer to your prayers. The restored one-bedroom boasts all those features and more, including tall ceilings and a decorative fireplace. And if you want your own gym you can just forget a few items when you leave the house and run back up and down the three flights to this top-floor walk-up. We’re only 50% joking.
Enter to find an open living and dining room area with southern light from oversized windows, recessed lighting, exposed original wood beams, and one of the home’s two skylights. Off the living/dining room combination, there is a renovated stainless steel kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances–including a Miele retractable vent hood–and glass tile backsplash.
Our one bone to pick with this apartment would probably be the fully renovated bathroom directly off the kitchen. While it’s not exactly the best location for a bathroom, it makes up for that with a stunning pyramid skylight, a LaCava sink with custom wood cabinet, a FACE-designed powder coated metal medicine cabinet that is deep enough to double as a linen closet, and a new refined slate floor.
The bedroom makes a grand entrance with a reclaimed wood sliding barn door. The Argosy-designed door has original hardware and a custom blackened steel frame and track. Argosy Designs in Brooklyn also used a blackened steel frame, along with wired glass, to create the bedroom closet.
127 West 15th Street is a pet-friendly brownstone co-op on a beautiful tree-lined street on the cusp of Chelsea and Greenwich Village. The convenient location is close to the Union Square Farmers Market, Chelsea art galleries–including the new Whitney, the High Line and the West Village. There’s also additional storage in the basement.
