This peaceful 750-sq.ft. open-plan 1-bedroom—plus full-size Murphey bed for guests—is not your typical Manhattan apartment.
The Apartment: A well designed floor-plan takes advantage of most of the square footage in the unit, but what is special about this lovely home is that when you enter, it does not feel like you are in a small New York City apartment. It resembles a serene sanctuary in the country, but with contemporary flair and all the mod cons. This apartment features a lovely sunken livingroom, hardwood floors throughout, a modern granite and stainless kitchen with SubZero appliances, vaulted ceilings, wood burning fireplace, exposed brick, and a large dining mezzanine great for entertaining friends, and lastly an in unit Washer/dryer (that needs to be hooked up). With most of the unit windows facing the courtyard, the views when you look out the windows into the garden are in no way that of a bustling city. Who would have thought that Penn Station, with access to multiple trains, buses, coaches and subway lines—many of which link directly to JFK, Newark and LaGuardia—is only two streets and one avenue away?
The Building: 90% owner occupied Coop recently completed the biggest renovations in over half a century with a new roof, and façade painting and restoration. So this heritage building, which part of the landmarked Underground Railroad, is now even more beautiful! With strong building financials there were very little assessment for the renovations.
The Neighborhood: Situated on an historic street in Chelsea (the Underground Railway) the apartment is 4 minutes walk to the 1, 2, 3, A, C and E subway lines, Long Island Railway, Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, MTA and intercity buses, and a further 8 minute walk to Port Authority and its many buses/coaches. The new Hudson Yards, with all its many amenities, stores, restaurants, cafés, and iconic attractions is—quite literally—just a hop, step and a jump away. The exciting, and yet restful, location of your new home is just steps to the famous Highline, Whole Foods, Fairway and Trader Joes supermarkets (in addition to a very adequate supermarket kitty corner), the Fashion Institute of Technology, Chelsea Piers, riverside parks for picnicking and sunbathing and, of course, some of the city’s best eateries. A truly tranquil, hushed sanctuary in the middle of New York City!
