A penthouse in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood comes with a large private terrace that takes in unobstructed western views of the city skyline and sunsets, providing a calm resting place in the bustle of the city. It also has access to a shared outdoor kitchen for easy al fresco dining.
The three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom residence is on the 12th floor of a full-service, luxury condominium built in 2008. A set of glass-enclosed stairs from the main living area lead to the 823-square-foot private terrace. The landscaped space is surrounded by built-in lighting.
The penthouse’s private terrace has direct access to the building’s common rooftop space, which is outfitted with two grills, a wet bar and outdoor shower.
“You just walk through a gate and the grills are there, and you can come back to your own space and dine outdoors,” said John Dugan of Elegran, who is co-listing the penthouse with Mick DiStasio.
There are a few other penthouse units, but this apartment, Penthouse B, is “the crown jewel of the building,” Dugan said.
The 2,324-square-foot interior has 9 1/2-foot ceilings and dark wood floors and is bathed in light from wraparound windows that take in views of the city. The living room has a working fireplace and a built-in entertainment center with glossy white modern cabinetry.
The open kitchen features a black lava stone island with a breakfast bar, exotic hardwood cabinets and new Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances with custom covers. There is an in-unit washer and dryer.
The primary bedroom can accommodate a king-sized bed and has a walk-in closet outfitted with custom shelving. A large ensuite bathroom has a long double vanity and glass-enclosed shower. The two other bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and spacious closets. All the bedrooms face north and have views of the Empire State Building.
The 99-unit building has an outdoor pool surrounded by lounge chairs and bistro tables. Additional amenities include a 24-hour doorman, concierge services, an onsite gym that overlooks the pool area and attached parking garage.
The building sits at 133 West 22nd Street at the center of the bustling Chelsea, Flatiron and NoMad neighborhoods, a mixture of quiet tree-lined streets and a main east-west thoroughfare. There are numerous restaurants, boutiques and galleries nearby, and there’s easy access to four subway lines and several bus routes. It’s close to both Madison Square Park, which is a few short blocks away, and Union Square, along with markets including Eataly, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.
The penthouse is listed for $5.5 million.
