One of West Chelsea’s First Homes Just Listed for $8.7M and It’s Looking Fresh

The New York City neighborhood of West Chelsea has long been a charming part of the city, and its vibrant residences stretch all the way back to the 1800s. Boasting rows of beautiful townhouses, there’s one stretch called London Terrace that features amazing Greek Revival homes built between 1849 and 1850 when the neighborhood was first being developed. Now, a home on London Terrace is on the market asking $8.7 million for its regal stature and chic finishes.

This brick abode at 455 W 24th Street has only belonged to a handful of families in all its years. With five floors spanning 4,328 square feet, the bottom three are for entertainment and gathering while the top two are for recharging quietly. You enter the home on the garden floor, which couldn’t be a more fitting name considering the residence stands out for its unique front garden and back garden. Whether you enjoy dining al fresco or doing morning yoga under the sun, there’s more than enough outdoor space.

Equally tranquil and bright, the interiors employ a mostly neutral color palette. Spaces are contemporary and livable, but still pay homage to a more opulent Manhattan age with gold chandeliers and mirrors that glisten. And, while the main floor is geared for a New Yorker’s everyday hustle and bustle, the parlor floor’s great room and dining room sit poised for classic formal occasions.

Nikki Field and Mara Flash Blum of Sotheby’s International Realty share the luxury, four-bedroom listing.
