Historic Chelsea townhouse with mansion potential wants $7.5M

New, 5 comments

The home, currently configured as two units, could go back to a single-family residence

Offering "multiple opportunities for comfortable living and/or investment purposes for the discerning buyer," this $7.5 million Chelsea townhouse comes divided into two separate condos, though the brokerbabble points out that it could also be an "exceptional opportunity to create a gracious, well-proportioned single-family home."

For now, though, the first two levels make up the garden duplex, a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath unit decked out with built-in bookcases, a wood burning fireplace, and a breezy chef’s kitchen. The "garden oasis"—a planted brick terrace—is accessible from both floors.

Upstairs, there’s a spacious four-bedroom triplex with not one but two outdoor spaces: a mahogany terrace overlooking the garden (and your neighbors), and a roof terrace with Empire State building views. Indoors, there’s an open kitchen, multiple marble bathrooms, three skylights in the master bedroom suite, and two wood burning fireplaces. Both units have gorgeous wide-plank floors, exposed brick walls, and—less historically but more conveniently—in-unit laundry.

The Greek Revival-style home (with Renaissance revival flourishes) is part of the Lamartine Place Historic District, a mini-development of 12 row houses that dates back to 1847.
