So much character packed into this 1,050-square-foot home

Few instances occur when we’re inclined to agree with the overstated nature of listing descriptions, but in the case of this two-bedroom loft in Chelsea, that brokerbabble calls a beauty that is a must-see, we can’t argue.

The apartment, asking $1.79 million, is a co-op that has undergone a thorough renovation that made preserving its prewar characteristics while enhancing it with modern charm a priority. Throughout the 1,060-square-foot expanse, you’ll find exposed brick, 11-foot restored pressed tin ceilings, original cast iron columns, hardwood floors, and elaborate molding. The bathroom offers a clawfoot tub, along with black-and-white floor tiles and white subway wall tiles.

There is a spacious kitchen that is befitted with custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a washer/dryer. Other contemporary touches include an abundance of iron-framed windows that bring in loads of natural light, custom lighting in every room, and a sizable walk-in closet for storage. The building offers a few nice amenities too, with a roof deck, community garden, and bicycle room being among them.

Maintenance goes for $2,225/month.
