As you enter the apartment you will be struck by the light streaming in from the enormous north and south-facing windows. The great room, facing north, boasts a beautiful wood-burning fireplace and plenty of room for a large dining table for entertaining. Opposite the wall of windows is a huge open chef's kitchen. A few steps up is a hall with full bathroom and a laundry room with a washer/dryer., and just beyond that is the crowning jewel: the south-facing living room with 14' ceiling height, and a wall of glass French doors leading to a small terrace with full view of a resplendent fir tree and the garden below. Built-in cabinets line the LR walls and an elegant curved staircase leads upstairs to a gigantic master bedroom suite. The MBR opens onto a stunning terrace, with ample room for a table and chairs and a view of the Empire State Building - a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening aperitif. A wall of closets and a large master bath complete the upstairs.

The new virtual doorman and low monthlies make this a dream opportunity in the heart of Chelsea, near the Highline, the great restaurants and excellent transportation.
