This renovated loft, asking $5.175 million, spans the full ninth floor of a classic early 1900s building at 142 West 26th Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. The 4,000-square-foot co-op apartment was designed by Fernando Santangelo, who is known for the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles. In addition to reflecting a brilliant eye for color and detail, the home hits every luxury loft high note, from 11-foot ceilings to vast room proportions. Though it’s currently set up with three “official” bedrooms, its current collection of spaces–including a formal living room, a great room, and a library–offer room for many more (see the “alternate” floor plan in the gallery below for just one version).

Enter the home via private elevator landing into a hallway with closet space and seating. A 42-foot-long formal living room features six huge loft windows.

A second entertaining/common space in the form of a great room measures 45 feet by 20 feet. The huge space could be turned into additional bedrooms, or used for entertaining, dining, and family time. No design detail or comfort is overlooked; you’ll find oak flooring throughout, and there’s central A/C.

A custom-built chef’s kitchen is a study in quality and good looks. Calacatta marble countertops frame a professional-grade eight-burner American Range and two ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and extra-deep sink, Miele dishwasher, wine fridge, and Hansgrohe fixtures. A built-in banquette is the perfect breakfast nook or workspace.

The kitchen also features a butler’s pantry for keeping the chef’s tools out of sight. There’s also a well-designed utility and laundry room with a full-size LG washer and externally-vented dryer.

The master suite has a fabulous walk-in dressing room lined with wardrobe closets. The en-suite bath has Barber Wilsons and Aquadomo fixtures, dual vanity sinks, a soaking tub, and radiant heated floors.

All three of the home’s full bathrooms are fabulously designed and comfort-filled.

A guest room/office is yet another of this clever loft’s flexible spaces. The boutique co-op building, which just got a brand new elevator and lobby renovation–has only 12 floors, and like many classic lofts, offers low maintenance charges.
