As the weather warms and green things begin to grow, thoughts turn to our own gardening fantasies. Whether you’ve got a green thumb or a license to grill (with apologies to Mike D), with the private garden of a picturesque 1900s West Chelsea townhouse at 411 West 22nd Street all to yourself, what more do you need? This interesting custom-designed garden duplex has its quirks, and it’s a rental so there’s no long-term commitment necessary.

11 West 22nd Street Main Space

Located on a pretty tree-lined residential block in the West Chelsea Arts District, this parlor and garden duplex spans 1,200 square feet of indoor and private outdoor living space. Enter the apartment through a private entrance on the garden floor where you’ll find a conveniently located washer/dryer and bike storage. There are 11-foot ceilings on the parlor floor, renovated kitchens and baths, and lots of custom design details. The tile floor on the garden level is interesting, if unexpected. As expected, the lower-level main room doesn’t have a lot of windows; at one end is a spiral staircase upstairs to the sleeping chambers, at the other end, doors to your garden escape.

11 West 22nd Street Kitchen

The kitchen is quirky (see ground floor, tiles) but rather fabulous. A fully customized renovation with custom built-in cabinets and closets throughout means your stylish and modern kitchen has a massive center island, stone counters and stainless appliances. Overall the effect is of a pretty vacation villa in Spain.

11 West 22nd Street Bedroom

11 West 22nd Street Bath

More surprises: The master bedroom–according to the listing–features a customized hidden bar with sink and mini fridge, which could be lots of fun or a dangerous combination. Bathrooms are tastefully renovated with marble and tile.

11 West 22nd Street Garden

The private, landscaped and furnished patio/garden has also been custom-designed; it’s a cozy garden getaway anyone would envy.
