Attention movie stars, jet setters, designers and fashion people, this huge 2350sf three bedroom, (convertible to four if needed), and two and a half bath corner loft is a chic and modern take on luxury living. No detail was spared in its meticulous Architectural Digest-quality European Bauhaus style renovation so much so that it feels more like an Italian designer's atelier in Milano.
However, it is located in the Capital Building, a turn of the century prewar furrier warehouse co-op building on West 26th Street, around the corner from Whole Foods on 7th Ave. This is a great loft for design people: it is one of the few remaining legal Work/Live buildings left in Manhattan so you can open your office here and live comfortably in the rest.
What strikes you as you enter the space is the expansive great room flooded with light from the towering industrial 7 foot multi paned steel windows that run the length of the 41-foot wall. The incredible height of the ceilings, measuring just under 11 feet, add to the impressive scale of the space. The loft spans the front corner of the building and the views are open looking both north and west. There's plenty of room for a large living room as well as a large dining area.
The loft checks all the boxes that define true luxury living. The kitchen is a large open floorplan with beautiful Italian custom Pedini cabinetry creating tons of storage. The white marble island is massive with a stainless hood and seating & white marble countertops allowing for lots of prep space. The appliances are all Miele stainless steel. An added European detail is the built in expresso and coffee maker next to the wall mounted Miele oven.
Continuing down the list of amenities, the unit also has central heat and air and all of its lighting is Lutron controlled. There are enormous seven foot German Agoprofil doors throughout the loft, plus details such as beautiful white marble window sills running the perimeter of the apartment.
The layout is ideal with the bedrooms down the hall and far away from the great room. The oversized master suite has a huge walk in closet providing enormous storage space. The master bathroom is lavish and includes top of the line Philippe Stark for Hans Grohe fixtures and fittings, gorgeous tile, a separate shower, double sinks and large soaking tub. Another luxurious detail is the bathroom floors; all have radiant heat. There are two additional enormous bedrooms and both have custom closets and share a hallway bath, that also has a separate tub and shower plus double sinks. The washer/drier is located in a closet in the hallway.
The loft has a private storage room on the floor accessible from the common hallway. Additionally, the maintenance for the unit is much lower than the average at $2,653 a month. Note: For those people who need more space, there is a potential combination with a neighbor which would create a palatial 4200sf loft.
While 236 West 26th Street is a co-op building, attention CONDO buyers: it's a flexible co-op which permits sublets, is Live/Work, and is pet friendly. The lobby is renovated with all of the original 1920s brass detail and terrazzo floors. There are 25 units, 12 floors, 3 elevator banks, a beautifully furnished roof deck with Empire State views, video intercom security and a fob controlled elevator. Basement storage is available and the building has a flip tax.
The building is conveniently located near Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Fairway. In addition to this, Chelsea is home to some of the top restaurants, galleries, shopping and entertainment options. Also nearby are many subway lines. The entrance for the C train is just literally around the corner at 25th and 8th Avenue.
