147 West 15th Street, PH9S
The ultimate New York City penthouse. This 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath duplex loft is located in a discreet cooperative at the crossroads of Chelsea, Flatiron and Greenwich Village. An extremely rare offering, with jaw-dropping 360 degree views and one of the nicest private roof decks in the city.
Perched on the 9th floor of a boutique coop, the contemporary open loft is bathed in natural light all day from oversized double paned windows. The corner living area faces South and East and is centered by a wood-burning fireplace. There is a separate dining area that can accommodate a large table, perfect for dinner parties, and is adjacent to a high end industrial kitchen by Boffi. Clad in stainless steel, there is an abundance of counter space and a center island with storage. Appliances include multiple Miele dishwashers, Thermador and Gaggenau range and ovens, and SubZero refrigerator with separate freezer drawers. A separate butler’s pantry conceals more storage along with a full wet bar with built-in freezer drawers, wine refrigerator and shelving that can be easily closed off with custom sliding doors.
The modern primary suite highlights stunning and unobstructed views south all the way Downtown. Custom built-out closets line the walls. The luxurious primary bathroom offers a windowed steam shower along with a separate soaking tub. Across the loft is the second bedroom, replete with its own en suite tiled bathroom with tub. A home office is smartly tucked underneath the wide concrete staircase, while a powder room and large separate laundry room complete the main floor. Poured concrete floors and 10’ ceilings add to the drama of the main floor.
The focal point of the home can be found upstairs in the solarium, with a massive skylight and floor to ceiling glass doors, allowing for easy indoor/outdoor living. With a wood-burning fireplace and full Boffi kitchenette with two Fisher & Paykel dishwashers, and two Sub-Zero mini refrigerators, entertaining is a breeze.
At approximately 1500 sf, the roof terrace is nothing short of extraordinary. Quintessential city views abound in all four directions. Lounge in the comfortable seating area just outside the solarium, or enjoy a meal under the pergola at your separate dining table. With a cascading water feature and lush gardening that has been a passion project for the landscaper for over 20 years, it is impossible not to feel transported while on this terrace. A walk-in shower and gas grill round out the remarkable outdoor space.
147 West 15th Street is a pre-war loft building that converted to a cooperative in the mid 1980s and is known for its striking architectural details. Security includes video intercom, key locked residential and freight elevators and a superintendent. Ideally situated on a residential, quiet block lined with low rise buildings, but close by to both every day conveniences and high end culture including some of the city’s best restaurants and art galleries.
