A rare offer in central Chelsea nearby the border of the West Village, this grand 2-bedroom (convertible 3-bedroom), 1-bathroom floor-through co-op apartment provides the homeowner with every convenience of modern living while preserving the prewar characteristics that are inherent to the property. Graced with 10 foot ceilings and loads of impeccably intact 1880s architectural details, 136 West 16th Street, 4W, known as an Edwardian Five layout, features a large, square living room with 2 over-sized north-facing windows with original wood shutters, as well as a beautifully detailed and intricately carved decorative fireplace.

There are two comfortable bedrooms, one with original carved wood and beveled-glass pocket doors that can also serve as a den or home office. Between the two bedrooms and off the hallway is a recently renovated subway-tiled bathroom with penny floor tiles and Perrin and Rowe fixtures. Beautiful hardwood parquet floors with a mahogany inlay border design, and central air complete the package. It is easily convertible to a 3-bedroom (see alternate floor plan).
