American Dream

On one of Chelsea’s most picturesque historic blocks, a cluster of townhouses is known as Cushman Row, considered the country’s most perfect renderings of Greek Revival row houses. Venture inside one of these homes and discover a three floor, three bedroom space dressed in the style of genteel Americana - a backdrop befitting a Norman Rockwell painting.

The Pursuit of Happiness

Your host is a distinguished gentleman who has led a storied life. Born in the Czech Republic, raised in Kenya, and schooled in England, he returned to New York for a career in engineering. Now retired, he channels his energies towards his hobbies: bike trails, making wine in the North Fork, and enjoying the music and cabaret in the West Village and Chelsea.

The Gilded Age

Enter through the front steps of an exemplary 19th century Greek Revival townhouse, and into a classic drawing room. A fainting sofa, stately armchairs and lamps with classic banker’s shades are clustered around a fireplace, as well as an antique gilded Federal eagle mirror. In the adjoining apricot-hued bedroom, a brass bed stands, regal but welcoming. A walnut kidney-shaped writing desk is perched in front of windows overlooking a private garden, where red-tailed hawks sometimes come to roost.

Recollections of the historic passage to the New World are replete in this home, from the second floor bath featuring tiles painted with ships, to the maritime-themed wallpaper festooning the stairwell. In the words of Auntie Mame, life is a banquet, and the downstairs dining area flanked by a galley kitchen and a brick hearth is certainly set for it. Outside, a garden with tumbling vines, stone steps, and a moss-covered cistern provides a quiet spot for delving into a great American novel. With a Meyer lemon-coloured bedroom on the first floor and another styled with rustic Big Country aplomb in the basement, this home is at the ready to receive pioneers evermore.

A New Frontier

Outside, a veritable gold rush of experiences awaits. The High Line, an elevated park built on a historic freight railway track, is a stone’s throw away. Venture south to explore Chelsea Market, rich in all manner of gastronomic delights from Jacques Torres Chocolate to Iron Chef Morimoto’s cutting edge cuisine. For acclaimed American fare, you need only venture around the corner to find Cookshop. For festivities rivalling those of The Great Gatsby, head to the Meatpacking District.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too. Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities. Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
