Stylish 470-Square-Foot Chelsea Loft Has More Space Than You’d Expect

While a 470-square-foot studio sounds pretty small when it comes to living space—and we certainly wouldn’t expect much in the way of storage—this $699,000 co-op at 100 West 15th Street excels in lots of unexpected ways. Sleeping lofts can be tricky—especially when they’re touted as the second floor of a “duplex” for twice the price of this unit–but in this case it works. A sizable sleeping platform with a wall of closets makes this studio look spacious rather than cell-like, and is in keeping with the Chelsea building’s industrial loft history. Finishes also have a loft aesthetic, enough to look like they belong without looking precious. And the quality of the home’s fixtures shows that whoever renovated this space meant business when it came to maximizing style and function in every square foot.

100 West 15th Street Mfain Room 2

Built in the 1860’s for the Coogan Brothers furniture manufacturing business, the building became a rental residence in the 1960s and was re-born as a co-op in the ’80s. At the border of the Village and Chelsea, you’re surrounded by great restaurants and shops, Union Square, the High Line and the best of downtown living.

This light-filled industrial loft has 12-foot ceilings, a massive 10-foot window and the aforementioned sleeping loft, adding up to what the listing calls an “artist’s dream loft in a factory building.” Though there may not be much room for making art, the sunny, open living room looks like a good spot to relax or entertain.

100 West 15th Street Kitchen

A thoroughly modern kitchen rocks a sleek black Viking stove and lots of stainless steel. The kitchen opens into the living and dining room, where you’ll find exposed 1860 beam and column details.

100 West 15th Street Bath

While the wood-planked spiral stairs keep kitchen and bath close by, the sleeping loft looks spacious and serene, and there’s room for lounging; a wall of closets is indeed “perfect for any fashionista.” And those little industrial-style “book nooks” are really pretty clever (note the one in the kitchen holding the cookbooks, too). The bathroom has been tastefully renovated with subway tile and glass, both luxurious and minimal. The apartment offers even more closets throughout, and the co-op has a bike room, (more) private storage, and laundry in the basement. Pied-a-terres are allowed with board approval–and this studio loft might make a good one.
