There aren’t as many authentic pre-war lofts as there used to be, and they’re getting harder to find. This 1,884-square-foot condo duplex at 121 West 20th Street in Chelsea looks a lot like the real deal, from 14-foot ceilings and original iron columns to impossibly tall windows. Asking $2,695,000, the two-story space has an open layout, but comes with an alternative plan for creating bedroom privacy while still enjoying plenty of lofty living space.
Explore the loft options
The first thing you’ll notice about this 1,700-square-foot Chelsea loft at 121 West 20th Street is the current owner’s fabulous hoard of classic movie memorabilia. The listing tells us that it’s been used as a live/work/gallery space to show off the “impressive pop culture collection of Elizabeth Taylor, Billie Holiday, Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret and David Bowie, just to name a few.” Then you’ll notice that for the ask of $2.2 million, you’re getting lots and lots of wall space for a gallery-worthy collection of your own. The “work” part of that equation is covered by a home office that hovers above the main living space, which is really not a bad commute from the bedroom or kitchen below.
See the rest of the loft
As the weather chills, a nice big fireplace starts looking pretty appealing. That’s the main attraction in the double-height living room of this two-bedroom condo at 121 West 20th Street, in Chelsea. The spacious pad, with 1,642 square feet, hit the market this fall for $2.595 million and now is down to $2.395 million. (It last sold in 2004 for $1.15 million.) It’s got some quirky details over two floors, including the original columns of the historic brick building still in tact.
