This $8M Chelsea townhouse has a soap opera past, a new renovation, and a flexible future
Back in 2015, 6sqft featured this charm-filled brick townhouse for sale at 426 West 22nd Street; the 19-foot-wide beauty, built in 1843, was listed for $9.5 million by Emmy-winning soap opera actress Ellen Parker, best known for a long run as Maureen Reardon Bauer on “Guiding Light.” The West Chelsea home on a tree-lined block near Clement Clarke Moore Park was divided into three residences for lots of options. The home has been renovated since then, still-charming but updated and restored, with modern finishes and fixtures. It’s back on the market for $7.995 million–possibilities intact.
This 4,090 square foot, 3-family townhouse offers a great opportunity for townhouse living with rental income or as a grand single-family home. There’s also the possibility of creating boutique condominium units. The renovated ground floor duplex would make a perfect owner’s unit, with 2,404 square feet of living space.
The three-bedroom, two-bath space boasts four wood-burning fireplaces, a washer/dryer, and a gorgeous, modern-rustic kitchen with high-end appliances. A landscaped private garden lies just out back for a tranquil escape or an entertaining spot.
The remaining two units boast exposed brick, high ceilings and two working fireplaces each. Each of the two also features private outdoor space. There are also 2,260 square feet of unused air rights.
