Spring will soon be in the air, and warmer weather brings dreams of al fresco dining and backyard entertaining for fortunate city dwellers with patios, decks, and private gardens. This four-story carriage house at 313 West 20th Street has three separate outdoor spaces–and a spacious garage, right in the heart of Chelsea. Asking $12,500,000, the historic home, built circa 1900, is a 25-foot-wide Manhattan mansion–with the option of a top floor apartment for rental income.

You can enter the main triplex in two ways: through a street-side entrance, or via the SUV-sized private garage. From the former, an entry hall opens into a vast great room. Beneath 16-foot ceilings and a skylight, this stunning space features a gas fireplace and built-in shelving. French doors lining the rear wall open onto a secluded private landscaped courtyard.

With plenty of room for gathering and dining, this dramatic space features pristine wide-plank hardwood floors, ceiling fans and central air for summer cooling.

A spacious kitchen is just off the great room, looking out onto the living room and garden. Home chefs will find endless storage and work space, enhanced by prep and wash sinks, a wine fridge, and recessed lighting.

Above the great room, a mezzanine level holds a media room or playroom. Arched interior windows frame the space and bring in sunlight.

On the home’s second floor is an enviable primary suite, warmed by original pine flooring. The main bedroom gets its own 575-square-foot private terrace. In addition to a five-fixture windowed bathroom, walk-in closet and dressing area, this floor also offers an additional bedroom/study.

On the third floor of the triplex are four more large bedrooms, all with refinished pine flooring. This level gets another full bath–and a washer/dryer.

The building’s top floor contains a two-bedroom apartment, accessible via a separate street entrance (there’s also access from the main triplex), with its own stairway. This cozy flat contains an eat-in kitchen and a private roof terrace. There is, of course, the option of incorporating the top floor into one large single-family home. The property’s lowest floor is home to its mechanicals, with plenty of room for extras like a home gym or wine cellar.

This unusually flexible and fascinating property recently changed hands (in August 2023) for $10.7 million. 6sqft previously featured the carriage house in 2019, when it was listed for a far more lofty $16 million.
