London Terrace Towers boasts some of the most innovative uses of space in the city. Often because we’re home to some of New York’s most creative people in all walks of life. Take, for instance, this smashing south-facing alcove studio. The kitchen has been opened up to allow for maximized work space as well as a custom island with storage on both sides and plenty of space for dining or serving guests.
Varied textures and hues are created with a mix of marble counters, back splash, and slate tiled floors. Full size stainless steel appliances will appeal to the chef in you and the custom light fixtures from School House Electric add the perfect finishing and working touch!
Your sleeping alcove floats behind a gauzy curtain but the sun won’t awaken you as the remote blackout shade behind the interior shades will insure a peaceful morning. The alcove leaves plenty of room for entertaining in the living area, especially with the open kitchen.
Just as the kitchen was built with storage and function in mind you’ll be astonished by the amount of room you’ll find with two separate closets. The hall closet is full size with plenty of room for outerwear and guests. The walk-in closet off the bathroom affords you maximized storage with a customized Alfa system.
And the bathroomit’s a perfect mix of new modern rustic materials. The customized sink with pull out drawers for storage meets up with the re-glazed original, deep soaking tub complete with rain-shower head and chrome fixtures. Washed grey wood-grain patterned tiles pared with clean lines create the balance of modern, warmth, and texture. Following the kitchen’s blend of surfaces the hexagon tiled floor blends color and tone with three different stones.
London Terrace Towers is known as the mid-century anchor of Chelsea and the High Line just steps away added a walkway to the future, with new, architectural residences adding depth and cultural activity to the horizon. Now, with the opening of the Hudson Yards shopping, restaurants, and artistic venues you’ll clearly be living at the epicenter of New York City.
At London Terrace you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds; Prewar details including nearly 9′ ceilings and amenities found nowhere else in Manhattan. Your maintenance includes use of the half Olympic size pool, locker rooms, steam rooms and saunas, all maintaining the historical beauty of the 30’s. The 3000′ health club is just $400 annually, run by The Wright Fit, and fully outfitted with equipment (including a stair climber) and two Peloton bikes which you can reserve for a nominal fee. You’ll enjoy free classes and, in the warmer weather, yoga on our beautifully landscaped roof. The only utility fee you’ll pay is for WiFi and cable and everything, including electric, is wrapped into your maintenance.
Your laundry facility is right downstairs and available 24/7 just as your concierge/doorman and porters so with a live-in Super and his staff there’s always someone to assist you. Within the Towers you’ll find two dry cleaners, one organic, a bank, post office, grocery and liquor stores, and Joe’s coffee right at your front door. So come, check us out and see why so many people love London Terrace.
