This 1,500 square-foot modern loft in the Chelsea Mercantile building at 252 Seventh Avenue, with interiors by popular decorator and current owner Anthony Baratta, has at its center a 600-square-foot living room, making it the perfect home if you entertain regularly; a wall of windows in said living room also makes for an easy upgrade if you’d prefer to add another bedroom instead. That, plus the popular building’s impressive landscaped roof deck and celebrity cachet have undoubtedly figured into its $2.995 million ask.
The apartment’s huge open living space is sun-filled with open city views and 10-foot ceilings.
The “state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen,” looks functional enough but rather underwhelming, perhaps because we keep thinking of celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s place in the same building (and it’s for sale and for rent). Also among the building’s notable residents have been Katie Holmes (who allegedly used a secret tunnel to get to the nearby Whole Foods), Lance Bass, Marc Jacobs and hockey player Scott Gomez.
As you can tell from the floor plans (see the photo gallery below), if you need less party space and more sleeping/private space, another decent-sized bedroom can be carved out of the living area. You still get a big open dining room and a living room (above) with great views.
Bedrooms get views, size and a few more goodies…
…such as an enormous walk-in closet and luxurious bathrooms.
And of course, the views. The Chelsea Mercantile is also known for its impressive amenities, which, in addition to that 10,000 square foot planted roof deck and a Whole Foods in the building, include a large fitness center, in-building a garage, full-time doorman and concierge and a children’s playroom. And it’s in prime Chelsea, of course, near the High Line, galleries, shopping, restaurants, subways and other downtown neighborhoods.
