On the top floor of a classic walk-up co-op building in the Chelsea Historic District, which happens to possess one of the loveliest roof decks in the neighborhood, this compact studio apartment at 333 West 21st Street offers old-world charm and some smart ways to make the small space work. For the first, high beamed ceilings, a wall of exposed brick, a decorative fireplace and large windows work their magic. For the second, a sleeping loft adds to the floor space. At $492,000 it’s less than you’d expect to pay for any size Chelsea apartment that’s well-appointed and ideally located.

The apartment’s entryway offers cleverly configured, custom built-in storage and designer details.

A newly-renovated kitchen features granite countertops, sleek white cabinets and a pop of color in the form of backsplash tiles in a range of blues.

The living area has high ceilings and quiet north-facing windows with treetop views.

Up the stairs, you’ll find that large sleeping loft and even more storage. The home also offers through-wall A/C and a partially renovated bath.

One flight up, you’ll find the building’s newly-installed planted sun deck spanning the width of three buildings. There are pergolas, tables and chairs and, best of all, sweeping 360-degree city views.
