Property Description

2 TERRACES – 1 WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE – 2-3 BEDROOMS – 2.5 BATHS. A wonderfully rare opportunity presents itself to move into a triplex apartment in New York City’s Chelsea Historic District. Located within the Chelsea Fitzroy Townhouses, the cooperative located at 436 West 23rd Street is comprised of 5 apartments. The Fitzroy’s are a grand row of converted 19th century Italianate homes on both 23rd and 22nd Streets. The “D” layout seldom becomes available for sale. The layout is quite flexible. It was originally offered as a 3 bedroom / 2.5 bath residence. The main level includes a gracious entrance foyer with powder room, kitchen, nicely proportioned living / dining room facing south. The sliding glass door opens to a wonderful balcony that runs the entire width of the house and looks on the most enchanting gardens that once formed the Clement Clarke Moore farm. The kitchen boasts Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch Stovetop, Miele Oven, Bosch Dishwasher, and granite countertops. The middle level originally had 2 bedrooms; the current Owners combined these 2 rooms resulting in a large and wide primary bedroom benefiting from the full width of the house. The floor is made up of two walk-in California Closets, a linen/storage closet, a Miele washer/dryer, and double sink bathroom. The next owner can keep this configuration or easily restore it back to its original layout. The upper level boasts another bedroom, home office, or den, built-ins outside its full bath, an additional walk-in closet, and direct access to an expansive north-facing roof terrace that is lush with trees and flowers. This private roof terrace was just completely reconstructed with all new decking and plantings. It truly is a beautiful outdoor space on which to entertain, read, or just spend some time outdoors. Hardwood flooring throughout and thru-wall Friedrich air-conditioning complete the offering. What is so special and unique about this home is the light that floods from both south and north exposures. There is a real sense of privacy accommodated by living on separate floors. Having not just 1 but 2 private outdoor spaces is unique and is specific to this “D” layout. The south facing balcony just off the living room is the perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee or entertain friends after a long day at work. The upper north facing terrace designed by architect and abstract artist, Noel Yauch, has an irrigation system and is beautifully planted with trees, shrubs, and flowers all of which are included in the sale. Both outdoor spaces have their own irrigation systems. The room off this upper terrace has a large skylight with electric shade and makes the perfect bedroom or home office. The cooperative offers service by a part time Superintendent. Pets are permitted. The neighborhood, West Chelsea, offers a number of attractions, restaurants, galleries, and shopping for its residents. An entrance to the High Line Park is just one half a block west. Both north and south along 9th and 10th Avenues you find some of the city’s best restaurants and shops. Spend an afternoon browsing the art galleries or venture farther north to all that Hudson Yards offers and south through West Chelsea to the Whitney Museum. For adventure seekers and sports enthusiasts, the Chelsea Piers complex frame the western border of the neighborhood and offers access to the Hudson River bike and jogging path. You truly find some of the best that Manhattan offers right here at your footsteps. For that buyer who wants a comfortable home that truly feels like a house with multiple outdoor spaces and a flexible layout, please look no further.
