500 W 21st Street Unit: 6-A
This sumptuous corner residence sits perched above the High Line in one of Chelsea's luxury condo buildings: 500 W 21. This apartment has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a private terrace that faces westward, overlooking the High Line. A long entry gallery leads into the graciously proportioned living and dining room, with a fireplace and oversized casement floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the north, and offers access to the 150-square-foot private terrace. The living and dining space flows into an open, windowed kitchen outfitted with rich, handcrafted custom cabinetry of quarter-sawn white oak in a dark brown stain, balanced with a white marble slab countertop and backsplash. Top-of-the-line appliances include a Miele electric convection oven, speed oven and gas cooktop with fully-vented pull-out hood; a Gaggenau 48-inch built in refrigerator; and an under-counter Marvel wine cooler.
One of the three bedrooms sits on this side of the apartment, a spacious enclave with a private bathroom and windows that offer beautiful views of the Church of the Guardian Angel. It can easily be enjoyed as a private office. Across the gallery entryway is a second bedroom- also with an en suite bathroom and has access to the terrace. The primary bedroom is a true den of grandeur. At 250 square feet, it is generously sized and features a grand bathroom adorned with white statuary marble walls, majestic brown marble flooring, custom bronze-trimmed vanities, a large free-standing cast-iron Toto soaking tub, marble double-vanity sink, separate oversized walk-in shower and radiant heated floors by NuHeat.
The apartment itself comes with designated storage space, and is pre-wired for telephone, data, and Verizon FiOS. A zoned 4-pipe fan coil system allows for customizable temperature control.
500 W 21 is an 8-story eye-catcher of glass and limestone designed by award-winning architect Kohn Pedersen Fox. All of the interiors are by West Chelsea-based designer Mark Zeff. With only 32 units, space in the building is at a premium, but your residency comes with an array of high-end perks: a 24-hour concierge, a 2,000-square-foot fitness center by The Right Fit, a club room for entertaining, children's playroom, limited on-site parking, and an expansive private garden designed by Rees Roberts + Partners.
The location is also top-notch, of course: plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as easy access to the High Line and Chelsea Piers. Culturally you're at the heart of New York, with the David Zwirner Gallery, the Dia Art Foundation and The Kitchen performance space just a few of the artistic offerings in very close proximity.
