Broker lingo calls this three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo within Chelsea’s former west building for the General Theological Seminary a “truly remarkable residence” and we’re inclined to agree. The apartment, asking $6.9 million, is one of just eight within the converted building and its units offer a “perfect mix of historical elegance and modern convenience,” not to mention nearly 2,500 square feet of space. Let’s take a look.
Judging from the floorplan, there appears to be two points of entry into the apartment, one from what looks to be a private elevator landing that leads into the foyer, and another that leads to the apartment’s hallway. The living room is where you’ll find 17-foot-high vaulted ceilings, oversized arched windows, and herringbone oak floors, while the nearby kitchen gives way to a 16th-century fireplace, a huge island, stylish wood cabinetry, some open shelving, and a wine cooler.
In the master suite, there is another fireplace, a dressing room with custom finished closets, an expansive bathroom, and three smaller closets. The two smaller bedrooms both have en-suite bathrooms as well, along with modest-sized closets of their own. The apartment also includes a laundry room with a washer/dryer, central air-conditioning, and radiant heated bathroom floors.
Common charges are a hefty $3,977/month.
