Property Description

Impeccably-renovated 17'-wide, 4500 sq ft Chelsea townhouse with 5 spacious floors, a fabulous 2-level garden-deck, and rooftop terrace that can become your urban oasis! Built circa 1848, 258 West 24th Street is a handsome historic gem that's been transformed to a modern beauty, located moments from the Highline, Hudson Yards, Chelsea Piers, Nomad, Flatiron and much more. This amazing home also comes with FAR 1.0 air rights, allowing the discerning buyer to build one full story up if desired, or two floors on half the roof.

Refined interiors shine with high-end finishes, oak walnut-finished wood floors, and a thoughtful layout for living/entertaining. Oversized windows front and rear brighten the ambiance. With a separate entrance, the garden floor has a perfect flow, with a large den featuring a fireplace and built-ins, and a fully-equipped kitchenette for serving complete with a microwave, under-counter fridge, 2 gas grills, dishwasher and sink. Glass doors from the den open to the 2-tiered, 850 sq ft garden retreat with lovely landscaping, a Japanese maple tree, and luxurious Ipe wood decking for the ultimate outdoor enjoyment. There's also a bedroom and full bathroom that make ideal quarters for guests or staff.

The inviting front stoop accesses the stunning parlor floor boasting airy 11'5" ceilings and a seamless flow for hosting. The entry spills into an elegant dining room with a decorative fireplace that can be opened up. Past the artful staircase you'll encounter the generous living room with a fireplace flanked by built-ins and meticulously-designed chef's kitchen, both with dramatic coffered ceilings. Walls of custom cabinetry, premium countertops, a huge center island, and top-of-the-line appliances (Viking Stove, Miele ovens, Miele smart oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator & wine fridge) heighten the culinary experience. A wall of glass leads outdoors with stairs to the blissful garden.

Level three houses the primary bedroom suite with an extensive wall of custom closets, built-in drawers and TV center. Its spa bath is divine, with a relaxing soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower, and dual sink vanity. This floor also has a secondary bedroom with walk-in closet, full hall bath, fully-vented LG washer/dryer, and sizable linen closet.

The fourth story houses 2 more well-proportioned bedrooms with walk-in closets sharing a full hall bath. A built-in office area with desk stations and ample cabinetry is great for working remotely. Spiral stairs ascend to the private roof deck.

Comfort continues in the fully-renovated cellar with a bonus room, tons of storage and mechanicals including an upgraded boiler and HVAC and humidifier system. Built-in Sonos speakers throughout the house and outdoors for your entertaining pleasure.

Topping it off is the prime location in chic, vibrant, history-rich Chelsea, near downtown's best restaurants, shopping, Whole Foods, subways and other conveniences.

Chelsea | Manhattan

Quick Profile

The row houses portray the world-class architecture of Greek Revival, Italianate and Georgian styles. The population is both ethnically and socially diverse, which is reflected in the restaurants and retail businesses in the neighborhood. 

Western Chelsea is the center of the NYC art world, where you will find more than 200 art galleries housed in rehabbed factories and warehouses, as well as in newly-constructed buildings.

While people of many different cultures call Chelsea home, it has been a mecca over the years for people in the LGBTQ community. One census reported that as many as 22% of its residents were gay couples. Eighth Avenue is a trendy area for LGBTQ-oriented dining and shopping. Although it no longer draws the LGBTQ population that it once did, Chelsea still has many popular alternative bars.  

Chelsea is primarily residential, consisting of a mixture of diverse complexes, low-rise apartment blocks, tenements, townhouses, renovated row houses, and luxury high-rises. 

Chelsea is an interesting and sought-after place to live, with unique clothing boutiques, restaurants, and delis representing cultures from around the world. In addition to its quirky establishments, Chelsea has fine dining restaurants and a vibrant, hip nightlife, which adds to its allure.

Chelsea is well-served by public transportation. At least six city bus routes traverse Chelsea. There are three NYC subway routes with stops on Seventh Avenue, three on Eighth Avenue, and two more on Sixth Avenue. The 34th Street - Hudson Yards Station opened in 2015 with its main entrance in Chelsea.
