The last time this Chelsea townhouse sold, it made tons of headlines for its super-stylish interiors and the fact that it was owned by Emmy-winning soap opera actress Ellen Parker, best known for a long run as Maureen Reardon Bauer on “Guiding Light.” That was in 2016, and it fetched $7,350,000. It then underwent a modern renovation and relisted in 2018 for $8 million. There were no takers, so it’s now back, asking a slightly reduced $7.7 million. Located on a charming tree-lined block at 426 West 22nd Street, the home is made up of an owner’s duplex plus two income-producing apartments.

Available on February 15 as a short- or long-term rental, this duplex occupies the top two floors of a charming brick townhouse at 426 West 22nd Street on a prime Chelsea block. The 1,168-square-foot two-bedroom unit is two flights up, one of three apartments in the townhouse which is also on the market for $7.5 million. The penthouse, asking $7,000 a month, features a 160-square-foot terrace and top floor loft space.

Back in 2015, 6sqft featured this charm-filled brick townhouse for sale at 426 West 22nd Street; the 19-foot-wide beauty, built in 1843, was listed for $9.5 million by Emmy-winning soap opera actress Ellen Parker, best known for a long run as Maureen Reardon Bauer on “Guiding Light.” The West Chelsea home on a tree-lined block near Clement Clarke Moore Park was divided into three residences for lots of options. The home has been renovated since then, still-charming but updated and restored, with modern finishes and fixtures. It’s back on the market for $7.995 million–possibilities intact.
Take a look
It’s good to have options. Take this former “Guiding Light” actress‘s 4,000 square-foot early Greek revival townhouse on James Phelan Row, for instance. It can either be delivered to you as three separate apartments with a potential rental income of $20,000 per month, or you can convert it into one giant dream home. Either way you’ve got three large outdoor spaces waiting for you during the warmer months, and eight wood-burning fireplaces ready to warm you during New York’s fierce winters. And all these options can be right at your feet for $9.5 million.
