Chelsea Mercantile – 7J

Timeless Renovation

The juxtaposition of modern design and classic architecture.

The transformation of this loft sets a new benchmark for design and function. The architectural team commissioned to transform this prewar loft began with a modern vision for the kitchen. The choice would be the German engineered Balthaup/ B3 system with appliances that are top of the line Gaggenau which include a five-burner cooktop, 36 inch built-in oven, energy efficient dish washer, built-in wine cooler, recessed coffee machine, warming and storage trays.

The kitchen seamlessly blends contrasting materials like glass, walnut, anodized natural aluminum and stone. The interior of the cabinets and draws are accessorized to create organization and beautifully displays contents from cutlery to cookware. There is also a fully integrated and panelized Subzero refrigerator/ freezer and a Miele washer and dryer.

The clean lines of this loft are emphasized by the many pre war characteristics like ceilings that soar to 11 feet and 7 foot windows through which beautiful eastern light is distributed. The second bedroom/ home office is separate and detached from the master-suite and great room. This split configuration enhances the sense of privacy and the absence of a hallway leading to bedrooms, increases the footprint in all rooms. Solid french doors open to a large master suite with dressing room and vanity outfitted with ebonized oak panels and custom cabinetry. The master bath is clad in travertine and limestone and showcases a deep soaking tub, a floating teak counter-top with stone sink and mirror by Boffi. The rain shower and fixtures are by Dorenbracht.

Fluted glass french doors reveal a guest-suite with lacquered panelized walls, floating walnut cabinets and work station also by Balthaup. The second bath is ensuite and has an oversized shower with glass tiles and a custom vanity designed to maximize storage. The loft has been wired for sound throughout and recessed lighting highlights texture and creates drama in the evenings. The condominium's newly renovated gym keeps you in shape, a private elevator takes you to your car and Whole Foods delivers.
