Situated between two pre-war buildings along West 21st Street in Chelsea is this Federal style townhouse that just hit the market for an even $7 million. According to property records, the home is owned by screenwriter and director Henry Bean, who is responsible for films like Noise and A Couch in New York.
The 3,600-square-foot home dates back to 1901 but you would never be able to tell by looking at its modern-day design that features 11-foot ceilings and exposed brick walls galore, creating a loft-like environment.
The parlor floor hosts the open living room that is outlined with brick walls and enormous arched windows that gaze out onto the backyard, as well as a dining area and an expansive kitchen. This space is overlooked by a glass-encased room on the third floor, adding further to the loft aesthetic that is in place.
Along with the five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms found throughout the space, there is a stunning library, a family room, and a room on the garden level that can be used as a home gym, yoga studio, or a playroom (per the floorplan’s suggestion). The intimate backyard provide a nice little slice of private outdoor space among the hustle and bustle of Chelsea.
