This penthouse is perched three easy flights up an eclectic Chelsea townhouse re-built in the 1960s all angles, windows, skylights and exposed brick.
The centerpiece of this spectacular property is the main floor with a massive, immaculately renovated gourmet kitchen boasting a 16-foot long island with Caesarstone counters, paneled Miele appliances, a Thermador and a wine refrigerator, and an enormous amount of polished lacquer cabinet space.
If space is not enough, we'll add volume -- cathedral ceilings reaching over fifteen feet bookend the kitchen in both the living and dining areas, culminating in over-sized, greenhouse-like windows to the north and south. The natural light is astounding. A terrace with townhouse views extends off the living room, and a bonus media room with sliding doors off the dining room. A half bath is on the main floor as well as an unbelievable amount of closets and low storage space.
Ready to go up? No spiral stairs here. Ascend one of two straight stairways with two landings to the top floor, where you'll find a master bedroom with a private deck, and two more bedrooms with opaque and sliding windows that create a mezzanine feel while preserving the option for enclosed rooms. In addition, there is a fabulous home office/guest room with unique angular windows. Two full baths, one with a washer and vented dryer, are suspended mid-level between the floors.
If all this isn't enough, there is a private, newly-tiled roof deck with charming views and coop-approved plans to extend the interior stairway to the roof.
Last but not least, the home is fully wired with a Crestron audio system, and electric shades. The intimate, nine-unit coop at 260 W. 22nd Street inhabits one of the best tree-lined Chelsea blocks, between the 1 and C, E trains, a stone's throw from Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and all the best gyms, restaurants and shopping of Chelsea/Flatiron/Hudson Yards. Don't forget the low maintenance - $2369 per month.
