255 West 23rd Street, Apt 5-BE

A bring-your-toothbrush apartment; this pre-war one-bedroom has been thoughtfully renovated since its last sale. The terrific kitchen, with custom maple cabinet frames, granite counters, and appliances including a garbage disposal, Bosch dishwasher, Samsung refrigerator, and Bertazzoni range, is entirely new, and has been opened to the large dining foyer via a breakfast bar. If you prefer, the foyer can be a home office area, as there is abundant space in the 20-foot living room for dining as well. Through-the-wall air-conditioning and new ceiling fans provide modern climate control. The windowed bath is done in updated pre-war style, with black hexagonal floor tile and a gleaming chrome and glass bath enclosure. The Art Deco step-down from foyer to living room is a gracious and charming detail, as are the capacious custom closets. This is truly a "just bring your toothbrush" apartment in wonderful condition; three virtually staged photos are attached to show the apartment's possibilities.

Chelsea Gardens is a full-service prewar co-operative, with full-time doormen and a live-in super. Two buildings are set around a luxurious common garden, which is large enough to allow for relaxation with social distancing. (Please see the photos of the garden taken during the building's current parapet work, which is expected to be completed next year.) Four separate lobbies provide places to interact with guests and give the building a boutique feel. The lobbies and the elevator cabs are done in a grand Art Deco style. The co-op is serviced by a common laundry room and a bike room (separate fee). Steps to the subway and easy walk-to-work for many Downtown offices.

Price: $1,345,000. This home has low, low maintenance of just $1,347. Pied-a-terres, pets, and case-by-case trust purchasing allowed. Showing with COVID protocols and by appointment. Don't miss this one!
