For $5.75M, a 116-year-old Chelsea townhouse that exudes 'old-world charm'

The last time this lovely home hit the market was 20 years ago


This lovely townhouse in Chelsea is nearly 116 years old but you would never guess from just looking at it. The last time the home hit the market was back in 1997 for a mere $550,000 but of course, the price has ballooned since then, now asking more than ten times that price at $5.75 million.

The single-family home is full of classic charm and elegance alongside modern upgrades. Its five levels span 2,776 square feet, hosting four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. On the parlor level, there’s some industrial-chic vibes happening, with whitewashed brick walls, 20-foot high ceilings, exposed beams, and wooden framed doors and windows. The kitchen boasts what brokerbabble calls “Old World charm” with a huge wooden island, a “deep farm sink,” and French doors that lead out onto the garden.

The second floor is dedicated entirely to the master suite where there is ten-foot ceilings, four large closets, and a bathroom with a clawfoot tub. The upper floors feature more bedrooms (and more white brick walls) along with flexible floorplans that can be rejiggered to create a home office, gym, or whatever else one’s heart desires.
