Surrounded by Manhattan’s twinkling lights, just off the Hudson River in Chelsea is a whimsical penthouse palace. Floating fairies, rustic branches and butterfly artwork give the modern two bedroom, three bathroom space a fanciful elegance. Steps below, feed your imagination at the prominent art galleries that define this West Manhattan neighborhood.
Cinderella and Prince Charming
Urban royalty, your hosts hail from Europe (she’s Italian, he’s Swedish) and work in media. They currently live happily ever after in New York City.
Airy and dream-like, this castle in the sky seamlessly blends fantasy with the ultra-modern. White-on-white décor, shimmering mirrors and organic accents set the backdrop for the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area lined by a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Highlights of this space include sleek kitchen appliances such as an espresso maker and wine fridge, a gas fireplace and a large wooded dining table for royal feasts.
Woven throughout the home are delightful characters that meet you at every turn – a family of charming wooden ducks, frolicking fairies and a mural of singing birds.
Warm hues and European antiques make their way into the master suite that opens onto an opulent white marble bathroom with double sinks, a large walk-in shower and a separate, oversized soaking tub. Painted in an ethereal blue, the light-filled guestroom includes a single twin bed and playful objects, perfect for sleeping beauty. There are two additional polished white bathrooms within the home.
Magical moments take place on the expansive landscaped terrace that offers skyline views. The outdoor space includes a large seating area outfitted with fluffy white cushions, rocking chairs, a dining table and a gas barbeque.
Manhattan is the city where dreams come true and the diverse, vibrant neighborhood of Chelsea offers an inspirational setting. Here visitors can find colorful markets, provocative art, swanky nightclubs and tranquil sunset views over the Hudson River. The apartment is steps away from the High Line, an elevated public park built on an historic freight rail line. Walk south along the High Line to the Meatpacking District and soak-in the energy and stunning scenery of Manhattan’s West Side.
