Beautiful 1-BR Chelsea Garden Apartment

A modern spacious 1-Bedroom apartment on the second floor of an Art Deco building with 24/7 doorman service, a one-acre interior garden and an unmatched Chelsea location. It has an oversized bedroom with sitting area, a large step-down living room with custom sofa and a comfortable high-top dining table that seats six. The apartment faces inwards, so it's very quiet, even with the windows open. Leave them open, and you'll wake to the sounds of birds singing. Enjoy the garden 24/7, with benches and a table for communal use — maybe you'll meet some of the neighbors over a bottle of wine.

The kitchen is fully equipped for a serious cook, with a 4-burner gas range, dishwasher, freezer/fridge, microwave, infrared toaster oven, blender, stick blender, electric hand mixer, Cuisinart food processor, Zojirushi bread maker, Instant Pot and a large array of knives and hand tools.

The rest of the apartment has been renovated in a sophisticated, inviting style. It retains some original Art Deco touches (metal window and door frames, arched doorways and Carrera marble bathroom), while embracing modern urban luxury: Italian gold-leaf sphere chandelier, robern bath cabinets with built-in lighting and heated mirror, custom-built sofa, two through-the-wall remote control air conditioners, Haiku ceiling fan, custom Corian dining table and bath vanity, high-gloss bedroom wall unit. and contemporary art. The apartment is well suited to working at home, with high-speed WiFi, wireless printer/scanner, a Roku streaming device and three Amazon Echo devices.

Chelsea is one of the most convenient and popular neighborhoods in the city, with great restaurants, public transportation, galleries, shopping, nightlife, and parks. The 1, C and E subways are on either side of our block, and Penn Station is just 8 blocks away, the High Line is two long blocks away; Whole Foods two short blocks away. Crunch Gym and New York Sports Club branches are on the block, and a number of specialty fitness studios are on the surrounding blocks (including a Pilates studio in the building); the city's best bagel is a block away. The neighborhood is pretty gentrified, but still home to residential service businesses like shoe repair and hardware stores. By subway, you're just minutes away from so much of the city:
Columbia University: 24 minutes
Fordham Law: 16 minutes
World Trade Center: 20 minutes
Lincoln Center: 14 minutes
Grand Central Terminal: 15 minutes
Williamsburg: 23 minutes
Long Island City: 23 minutes

Upon entering the building, you and your guests are greeted by our friendly and helpful doormen. They'll sign for packages, take your outbound mail, and announce your visitors. As you enter the apartment, you walk through a short entry hallway into the dining area, and the step-down living room, making this large area feel more like two distinct areas. Cross the dining area, and you approach one of three doors: kitchen (which doesn't actually have a door), bathroom, and bedroom. The bathroom feels sexy and spacious, with marble tile up to the ceiling, a ceiling-mounted shower curtain instead of a glass panel or door, and LED nightlights in the medicine cabinet and vanity drawer. The dining area is comfortable for working or dining, with a high-top table and architectural drafting chairs. The custom sofa in the living room has a double-width chaise section, perfect for couples lounging and streaming TV. The apartment features two large windows in the living room, two in the bedroom, and a small window in both the bathroom and kitchen. The bedroom is set up with a seating area in front of the bed, which is a queen size Royal Pedic 7-zone natural latex mattress. High-Speed WiFi, hot water, heat and electricity are all included; an 8-machine laundry room is in the basement. Not included are the mandatory services of a professional housekeeper to clean the house every two weeks ($110/cleaning).

'William Kolber is my son who now resides in the apartment I lived in, in NYC for which I had many satisfied and lovely renters for many years from your site. He took the original pictures I posted for my apartment. I sent a testimonial about your site many years ago, because of the successful connections we made through you. Sincerely, Barbara Kolber '
