Trust us. Nothing’s turning back into a pumpkin at midnight here. This two-bedroom loft-style apartment at the Broadmoor used to be an extravagant 1920s ballroom, and it still has a number of the original details. The $1.55 million pad features 14-foot ceilings, original arched windows, original moldings and beams. And probably best of all, it has tons of light streaming in from 11 windows and three exposures.
You’ll be happy to know one of those exposures is the western-facing living room, which means you can entertain friends with the romantic sunset as your backdrop. There’s even a sliver of the river, and check out the lofted sleeping area behind the built-ins. The renovated kitchen features high-end appliances including a sub-zero refrigerator, a wine fridge, and a washer and dryer.
You can sing to the birds from window seat in your bedroom while you gaze at the Empire State Building. And the second bedroom (or study… or sewing room) has a huge attic space where you can store materials for your next ball gown or at least hide a spare key in case that wicked stepmother gets up to her schemes again. After a long day of trying to get Lucifer to take his bath—yes, pets are allowed—you can soak in your large garden tub.
The Broadmoor is a 13-story, 75-unit Chelsea apartment built in 1925. Residents enjoy a full-time doorman, two planted roof terraces with panoramic views, and a dining area with more amazing views. Pied-a-terres and Prince Charmings are welcome.
