Chic condos or real mansion living?
Two for the price of one. A historic mid-19th century Chelsea townhouse has potential for creating a gracious well-proportioned single-family home, according to the broker’s listing. Priced at $7.5 million, this five-story North Chelsea townhouse is currently split into two condominium units with a substantial spot of green—a garden duplex that occupies its first two levels.
The first two levels also include a three-bedroom, two and a half-bath unit accessible through two entrances, its own garden-level entrance or through the front entryway on the parlor floor. The 700 sq. ft. living/dining room on the parlor level has built-in bookcases, a wood-burning fireplace and an open chef’s kitchen with bamboo cabinets. On the lower level of the garden duplex are three bedrooms, 2.5 baths with unique touches like Dornbracht fixtures and Lavaca vanities. The planted brick terrace can be accessed from the lower and the parlor floors.
The upper-level triplex is a sprawling space with four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and two outdoor spaces: a cocooned mahogany terrace off the main living area that peeks into the garden and a roof terrace with sweeping views of the Empire State building. Inside, there’s a master-bedroom suite with three skylights flooding it with natural light, marble bathrooms with spa style master bath and an open-kitchen.
This exquisite house sits on the streets of the Lamartine historic district close to the entire Chelsea art and gallery scene, Highline Park and the flourishing Hudson Yards neighborhood. The Greek Revival-style home built in 1847 combines all the classic proportions of the time with the original interior details like plank wood floors, exposed brick walls and wood-burning fireplaces. Custom touches were added to modernize both the units yet retaining its original structure. The green spaces improve the flow between all the levels making it an exceptional opportunity to make it a single-family home and/or investment purposes for the discerning buyer.
