If you’re looking for a nice pied-a-terre in the heart of an eclectic neighborhood, you can stop your search right now… but of course, keep reading our articles. This $2.495 million 2BR/2BA loft sitting high up in the Capitol Building offers 1,800 square feet of interior space with an additional 200 square feet in the form of an amazing terrace, and two Juliet balconies. And with beautiful views of the city, including a the majestic Empire State Building, the only thing this loft is missing is Luciano Pavarotti singing “Nessun Dorma” in the background. So, hum along with us as we take a tour through this excellent estate.
When you enter apartment #11NW, you’re met with an abundance of light thanks to six-foot windows wrapping the corner living room and the adjacent kitchen. The open flow of these rooms will surely make for a great entertaining space. The 16-foot Carrera marble island in the large eat-in kitchen definitely agrees. This top-of-the-line kitchen boasts marble and walnut accents, and serves as the supreme gathering space, not only because it’s where all the food is, but also because it’s right next to that terrace.
Yes, that’s what we’re talking about. Sit back on this terrace with a bottle of wine and the company of your favorite musician, and all your troubles will slip away. It’s views like this that brought you to the city that never sleeps. And speaking of not sleeping, let’s keep humming as we head back to the living quarters.
The master suite has a large walk-in closet along with an en suite bathroom with a glass-enclosed rain shower. Meanwhile a second bedroom shares an adjacent bathroom with the home office. The home also features polished concrete floors and 10.6-foot beamed ceilings, all in a desirable prewar Art Deco building right in the middle of all that Chelsea has to offer. You know what? Puccini was right. None shall sleep… because we’re all running to Chelsea to get this loft! We’ll let Pavarotti take it from here.
