THE FLATIRON LOFT-HOUSE - 34 West 21st Street combines the best of townhouse and loft living in this brand new one-of-a-kind, ground-up construction, steel and concrete 7-story limestone landmark with a curb cut private garage in the heart of the Ladies' Mile Historic District that embraces the best of 5 neighborhoods: The Flatiron District, Chelsea, Gramercy NoMad and Union Square.
Moments west of Fifth Avenue, you enter via a discrete entry foyer or the adjoining garage (perfect to house your G-Wagon or Tesla), Manhattan's ultimate convenience. A commercial grade glass elevator whisks you from floor to floor, as you are reminded that this is not merely square footage: with 12-15 foot ceiling heights, the CUBIC footage is as impressive. Originally conceived and designed by architect Karl Fischer and interior designer Andres Escobar, this approximately 7,500+ square foot single-family residence has been built to the highest standards with concrete slab construction and an elegant limestone facade that surrounds enormous windows that fill the interior spaces with light all day long.
There are three levels of entertaining spaces with every room spanning the full 16 foot width of the building giving a spacious and lofty feel on
every floor. On the entry level is a large 37-foot long studio with a powder room, perfect to be used as an office too. One flight up is a grandly scaled dining room with an adjoining double-height-ceiling, Chef's Kitchen, the perfect floor for casual or more formal entertaining that leads out onto a big, 33-foot terrace. The floor above houses a splendid living room/den that overlooks the kitchen below. A wall of 24ft-plus windows faces south. The following two floors house two well-proportioned bedroom suites each for a total of four. The top two floors - or duplex penthouse - serve as an Oscar-winner-worthy primary bedroom suite with its own private terrace.
In the large basement, a mechanical room houses all the brand new state-of-the-art mechanicals as well as a sauna, laundry and another bathroom. The developer will deliver this property about 90% completed to allow the new owner the ability to customize and decorate to their exact specifications....the fun part!
The Flatiron Loft-House boasts the convenience and privacy of a single family home with loft-like attributes and highly sought after amenities normally associated with a larger building. This ultra-convenient centralized location is also in close proximity to Midtown Manhattan, Hudson Yards and the West Chelsea Arts District to the West, not to mention Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District to the south. Every conceivable convenience is within moments of your front door: from Eataly, to Madison Square Park, the Union Square Farmers Market, hundreds of the world's leading art galleries, all modes of transportation, every imaginable restaurant type and entertainment and cultural options to keep you enlightened for years.
This first floor and basement are zoned as commercial space, making this home the perfect income producing property, or live/work opportunity. Images are virtually staged and renderings. Listing courtesy of Compass
