About this property
Over the span of several years, with the vision of the architecture firm The Turett Collaborative and exceptional builders, this beautiful and modern home being built to the highest standards, is currently in construction and will offer all of the space, functionality, keen design, privacy, and impressive features a discerning owner and investor could hope for, either as a primary residence or a pied a terre with private amenities in NYC. There is still time for a buyer to take advantage of the flexibility to customize the home with the owner's seasoned team, or bring in their own team, before further buildout. With approx. 7,640 SF of interior space, coupled with approx. 1,065SF of exterior space, not including the roof deck, the 20 x 102 lot has been maximized to feature an approx. 30 foot rear yard, approx. 10 foot gated front courtyard with stoop (pending approval), 2 private terraces, and 3 additional balconies. This 20 ft wide townhouse with North and South exposures provides an unrestricted architectural design that harnesses light and space, creating a single-family dream home in one of Chelsea's most convenient locations. The proposed plans upgrade the existing structure into 7 bedrooms, 8 full baths and 3 half baths, a dramatic approx. 20ft tall double-height parlor floor, and gracious ceiling heights on all other levels. The swift elevator serves the garden level through to the penthouse floor. As you enter the Garden Level, the "mud room" area provides the perfect space to privately receive packages, and has an adjacent bedroom for guests or staff with their own full bath. Making your way through the floor, the Henry Built chef's kitchen with a stone island will have a separate breakfast area, huge pantry and storage spaces, and the option for a separate dining or living area overlooking the large South facing rear yard and approx. 20 ft. height ceilings overhead up to the Parlor floor. Stepping through the doors onto the large rear yard, which can easily accommodate fabulous BBQ and outdoor dining events, a planned structural sky light beneath you will look down over the proposed spa below in the fully-excavated cellar. The flexible open cellar plan offers a variety of private amenity options such as sauna/spa, home gym, theatre and recreation room along with a wet bar and bathroom. For all of your loft living, open concept possibilities, the gracious ceiling heights and space in the Parlor floor presents the perfect welcoming area for guests where you can showcase art in your seating area and continue on to a huge formal living area with fireplace, perfect for entertaining, and an overlook down to the Garden level below. The elevator will take you up to the second floor for the well placed Laundry Room and guest bedroom with an ensuite bath and large closet, along with a Den on the South side featuring a fireplace and another balcony. The Primary Suite floor on the 3rd level has a proposed flex North or South facing primary bedroom that has enough space for a workout area right on the floor, or seating area. The sensible flow of the floor with 3 massive walk-in closets, a beautifully appointed primary bathroom with separate tub, steam shower, powder rooms, and a private balcony, make for the perfect enclave. The fourth and fifth floors will have 3 more bedrooms and full baths, along with another double height ceiling design that presents the opportunity to project movies, sporting events, concerts, or whatever your visual heart desires right onto the North wall! Envisioned amenities for the rear terrace are a BBQ with kitchenette, and a private lounge area looking South, making for the perfect, private escape from the city's action. Walk across the glass bridge through the corridor and enjoy the bonus corner terrace on the Northside. The upper roof will be paved to provide additional usable space for more private lounging from where to soak in the views, and a hot tub is envisioned as a possible amenity. The house has been built to be "fortress like" with steel reinforcements, optimal waterproofing, sound barriers in the floors, and a sustainable smart home with touchscreen automation in all rooms, discrete thermostats, home security system, and plenty of "work from home" office options and recreational space. All new electric, plumbing and HVAC systems are installed. The proposed front facade, traditional in style, plans to recreate a high stoop similar to the neighboring homes, and the proposed rear facade transitions into a modern design with full height windows and doors on the entertaining floors, and oversized bedroom windows allowing for an abundance of light. Positioned on a row of thirteen south-side townhomes, with garage parking directly across the street and a block from the subway, this property is located in the non-Landmarked district of Chelsea, and convenient to the High Line park, Hudson River, Hudson Yards, Chelsea Piers, the Chelsea Market, Chelsea Art district, and the city's finest dining and food market shopping nearby. For the option to take over buildout and purchase the property "as is", price is available upon request. Images are renderings.
