Welcome to your custom curated, one-of-a-kind garden duplex in the heart of Chelsea. No detail was overlooked in the masterful renovation of this one bedroom home featuring over 350 square feet of private outdoor space.
Every inch of this home was thoughtfully and carefully considered— from the five inch white oak floors to the exposed brick and bedrock to the flush mounted overhead light fixtures (all outfitted with Lutron smart switches), to the porcelain tiled garden. This is true modern minimalism that flawlessly combines elegance, charm, and style with the finest materials. The open-concept layout of the upper level is ideal for entertaining with a seamless flow from the foyer to the lush garden which is a perfect oasis for outdoor relaxation and entertainment —complete with a blossoming red maple tree, ivy, and greenery galore.
Off the foyer is the tastefully tiled bathroom with circular cutout windows that bring in natural light all the way from the garden. The kitchen is just as dreamy with a massive black granite waterfall island, Wolf induction cooktop, a Miele oven, two Subzero refrigerator drawers, an additional KitchenAid refrigerator drawer and freezer drawer, and a Miele dishwasher. The island doubles as a breakfast bar and accommodates four stools.
The living and dining area easily fits a table for four and a sitting area. The solarium is flooded with light from the sunny southern exposure and floor to ceiling glass sliding doors. This space can easily be set up as an extended living room, a home office, or both! A glass cutout in the floor frames the center of the space and creates a light tunnel that funnels light into the lower level, while doubling as the perfect stage for a sculpture.
The spiral metal and wood staircase guides you downstairs into a gracious bedroom designed for a queen, literally and metaphorically. The original exposed bedrock and porthole cutouts allow for endless decorating possibilities that lead to a custom-fitted closet that can be tailored to meet the needs of any wardrobe. A dressing area with overhead lighting completes the bedroom and offers direct access to the building’s common laundry room.
The 354-356 West 23rd Street cooperative comprises two five-story buildings built in 1910 with a total of 27 units. The pre-war boutique coop has a video intercom system and consists of studios and one bedrooms. The building is accessed via a small gated front yard.
