About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fabulous apartment is in a great location on 8th Ave at 18th St, in the heart of Chelsea, perfect to navigate the city from. The building is only 4 stories and the apartment is a short 2 stairways up. The city outside is at your door step but the loft is an extremely quiet and peaceful refuge from the fast pace of the city. For romance and relaxation there is a slate covered wood burning fireplace, a beautiful marble bath with two person soaking tub, and separate floating glass shower.

For entertaining there is a large gourmet kitchen. There is some outside space too - a small Juliette balcony off the bedroom overlooking a quiet courtyard below. The bedroom is the ultimate in comfort and offers plenty of custom wood closets. The apartment has air-conditioning through out for those warm summer city nights.

Chelsea is an extremely desirable and safe neighborhood that offers great shopping, Manhattan's hippest gallery district, excellent restaurants, cinemas, gyms and gourmet food markets. Extremely convenient to all of New York City's best - and within walking distance of the High Line, Union Square, the Village, Meatpacking District and SoHo, Broadway, museums, galleries, and night clubs. The apartment is also very close to Chelsea Market (9th ave and 15th St), Whole Foods, Trader Joe's. Chelsea Wine Cellar on 7th Ave and 21st St has a great wine selection.

Subways within two blocks radius include the A, C, E, 1, 9 and L, and cabs are always available outside the front door.

About Susanna Mitchell

I've enjoyed a diversified life with careers in Environmental Science, entertainment, real estate and design. I live in New York but grew up in Canada and Bermuda, two wildly different climes! When it comes to property I tend to prefer the extremes....extreme country, or extreme city, and that's what I love about NYC. You can't get more city that this!

Susanna Mitchell purchased this condo in 1998

Why Susanna Mitchell chose Manhattan

It is an oasis in the city. A perfect location near to all transportation links. It's spacious (as NYC apartments go) and has a quiet bedroom with Juliette balcony in the back. The living area and kitchen are well furnished and in the winter, the wood burning fireplace is an added bonus.

What makes this condo unique

'The location can't be beat!' Quiet bedroom in the back. Small building with only 3 other full time residents. Gorgeous fireplace and wonderful energy. Within walking distance of the High Line, Union Square, the Village, Meatpacking District and SoHo. etc. The apartment is very close to Chelsea Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's. Chelsea Wine Cellar on 7th Ave and 21st St has a great wine selection.

Great little apartment in the Chelsea

  • 5 of 5

Susanna, the manager, was extremely helpful from the very start and the apartment was perfect for my family of four. Very close to the subway, plenty of restaurants and shops close by and lovely neighbours. We had a wonderful 5 days in New York.

Responsiveness of management couldn't be better. Guests with luggage should be aware it's a walk up. As comfortable once inside as can be imagined. We found it clean and well-equipped. Apartment is unbelievably quiet for New York and there is a great sense of privacy vis a vis how windows face. Go for it!

Is as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled to NYC with our 9 year old son. The apartment was spacious enough for the three of us. The apartment is conveniently located a block from the subway, few blocks from Chelsea Corner and the meatpacking district. We had no issues during our stay.

Great location! Excellent accommodation for four.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was surprisingly quiet and spacious. It was comfortable, clean, and its amenities were exactly as described. There is lots of space to unpack into, and the kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with basics. Internet access was reliable and fast, and the air conditioning worked fine. It was great comfort to have a washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher. Chelsea is a perfect location for NYC visits. Right outside the front door you have plenty of restaurants, cafes, and supermarkets. There are several subway stations within a short walking distance from the apartment, which allowed us to move around the city quickly. Susanna is helpful and responsive, All in all we had a great stay, and we would definitely recommend the house to family and friends

Great location. Very comfortable space!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is well located for getting around Manhattan. It is only a few short blocks to the 14th St/8 Ave subway station where you can access both a north/south line and a crosstown subway line. It is also close to grocery stores or the Chelsea Market if you are planning to eat in. The owner was very flexible about allowing us to leave our bags despite the check in and check out times. She was responsive and quick to answer questions.

The apartment was well supplied and the furnishings comfortable. Lots of closet space. Great bed and the bedroom is located at the back away from the traffic noise which is important in Manhattan. This space would be very comfortable for longer stays although we were only there for 3 nights.

Be aware that this apt is a walk up so there are 2 flights of narrow stairs to be negotiated to access the apt. The stair access is the only reason we dropped a star on the rating. Very large suitcases would be a challenge! Also the hot water is extremely hot and should be approached with a little caution.

This neighbourhood nightlife was very quiet compared to other parts of Manhattan. We considered this a bonus.

Overall we would recommend this place and we would definitely stay here again.
