The top floor has another large, south-facing bedroom, with views overlooking the park and the Chelsea skyline. The rear bedroom has been subdivided into a guest room for your visitors and a spa room for everyone’s indulgence on the massage table. Another full bathroom, linen closet, and laundry room complete this floor.
Up the spiral staircase, the roof level houses a utility room with mechanicals serving the home. The rooftop is bright and open with glorious views overlooking the park and the Chelsea skyline.

On the garden level, you are guaranteed to have a spectacular time! The front room has its own private entrance. Currently configured as a sitting area, this room can legally be used as an office or you may want to use it as another bedroom, with its own ensuite bath.

Here is where you will cozy up by the fire in front of the TV or with a good book, have a game night playing chess or cards, or host an elegant indoor-outdoor garden party.
