History and modern elegance abound in this peaceful apartment located on the g rounds of the General Theological Seminary, a block-long enclosed garden once owned by author Clement Clarke Moore, offering zen-like appeal amidst the busy city. Designed by famed architect Alan Wazenberg, 455 W 20th Street is comprised of two buildings: to the East the conversion of one of the oldest buildings in Chelsea and the newer structure to the West, both connected via a stunning atrium-style lobby. Unit 5B, part of the recent addition, is a spacious and bright three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment with Eastern, Western and Northern exposures and numerous windows featuring views of the Close and the historic architecture of the Seminary, including the West Building, the Chapel of the Good Shepherd and The HighLine Hotel. The gracious layout features an entry foyer that leads to both a light-filled corner living and dining area and an open eat-in kitchen featuring custom rosewood cabinetry, marble countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf range and Subzero refrigerator. The third bedroom offers a pocket door to the living area, so that it could easily be used as a den or library. A wide corridor provides privacy for the second bedroom and the corner master suite with generous closets and master bathroom fully furnished with dual vanities, tub and separate shower, and radiant heat floors. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. Other features include oak flooring, paneled oak entry doors, crown molding, central A/C and Bosch fully-vented washer/dryer as well. All residents can enjoy access to the private grounds of the Seminary during the week as well as luxuries in the building itself. Amenities include a windowed fitness center, private storage and bike storage, full-time doorman and live-in super. Pet friendly. Located in the heart of West Chelsea with easy access to the Gallery District, shops, restaurants and bars and in walking distance to the High Line, Chelsea Market and Avenues of the World School.
