Welcome home to this ultra-stylish, expansive, gracious one-of-a-kind, classic prewar 2BR/2BA duplex loft with two balconies, high ceilings, recessed lighting, custom-crafted staircase, hardwood floors, foyer, chef's kitchen, home office, an in-home laundry room, storage and central AC - all in the historic Arcadia co-op in the heart of Chelsea.
Enter through a welcoming, 12ft-wide foyer entry gallery that leads past the first-floor full jacuzzi bath, and spacious open chef's kitchen expertly equipped with Poggenpohl cabinets and appliances by Subzero, Viking and Bosch, into an enormous 34ft living and dining room with high ceilings, custom built-in bookcases, hardwood floors and a south-facing balcony with windowed French doors that fill this room with sunshine.
Then ascend the striking, full-sized, custom-crafted forged metal and wood staircase, past the home office and guest suite to the luxurious, pindrop-quiet primary bedroom with another private open-air balcony and custom built-in wall unit storage. A lavish main bathroom with walk-in shower and double sink, large custom closets, and a full-sized laundry room are also on this upper level.
The 7-story Arcadia building, designed by renowned architect C.P.H. Gilbert in 1899, is notable for its distinctive gold ram's head carvings adorning a handsome muted green and masonry facade. The 19-unit co-op features a beautiful roof deck, key-lock elevator, full-time super, a common laundry room, bike storage, individual storage units and excellent access to public transportation (1, C, E, F and M train lines.) Cinepolis, The Gotham Comedy Club, The Chelsea Hotel, Forager's Market and Whole Foods are all right outside your door.
