While you were sleeping, barbecueing and beach-going this long weekend, an apartment asking $12.75 million at Chelsea’s Walker Tower went into contract on July 5th.
One of the few remaining condominiums at the 212 West 18th Street conversion, Unit 14CD measures 3,838 square feet and has four bedrooms.
The residence boasts hydronic radiant heated flooring, an eat-in kitchen with island, walk-in closet in the master suite, custom Smallbone kitchen with Sub-Zero appliances, externally vented kitchen and laundry exhaust, Crestron Home Automation System and north, west and south exposures. The master bath features a freestanding cast iron bathtub, heated towel rack and steam shower with body sprays and rain showerheads by Waterworks.
The 50-unit, 24-story luxury building was first designed in 1929 by Ralph Thomas Walker. Half of the residences have private terraces and large tilt-and-turn windows, while all homes have French Herringbone oak flooring, marble bathrooms with steam showers and quiet central air conditioning. Amenities include a 24-hour lobby attendant, concierge, children’s playroom, gym, lobby lounge and library, bicycle storage, stroller storage and a package room. There’s also a roof garden with observation deck, lawn, roof lounge cabanas and dining area.
Douglas Elliman was tapped in late May to market the last remaining units at Walker Tower. The priciest available unit is PH5, a duplex three-bedroom (with a terrace! And a wood-burning fireplace!) asking $14 million.
