Perched above West Chelsea's Contemporary Art Gallery District, equidistant between the New Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District and vibrant Hudson Yards to the north via the splendid Highline Park, this exquisitely scaled and renovated home with almost 50 feet of frontage through floor-to-ceiling windows was designed by Architectural Digest royalty, Annabelle Selldorf, and customized by Javier Robles of Utopus.

A hallway separates the bedrooms from the living rooms: the Primary bedroom suite with its equally impressive art walls features an exceptional, fully renovated Calacatta marble bathroom with Boffi hardware and a BLU soaking tub with a separate shower with a rain head, dual sinks, and a Toto commode. A large custom walk-in closet completes the picture.
