As soon as you move into this 560-square-foot loft-style Chelsea studio at 85 8th Avenue, you’ll be convinced you’ve snagged the coolest apartment in the neighborhood. It was formerly a one-bedroom, it’s just had a full renovation…and the space is divided by a custom-milled wooden wall that runs the length of the bedroom area. Not convinced? There’s also a walk-in closet, a Juliet balcony and Empire State Building views, all for $589,000.
The superchic renovation was also practical, opening up the space for a more modern floor plan. Two steps add a mod sunken living room vibe and separate the living and sleeping areas. To tie it all together, the apartment’s dining and coffee tables match the wall.
A newly renovated island gives a dedicated cook even more options in the kitchen.
A tricked-out custom built-in desk with a metal desktop fits right in.
The wood wall adds a warm golden glow to the bedroom; a double-hinged loft-style door can close off the bedroom or the jumbo walk-in closet. The bath is updated, chic and modern as well, including a including a shower with a clear glass half-wall to make the efficient bath feel airy and open.
Building amenities include a doorman, a shared courtyard, laundry on every floor and storage.
