Kelsey Grammar’s Chelsea Loft Is All About the Views
Minimalism reigns supreme in the light-filled Manhattan loft of Kelsey Grammer, which just hit the NYC real estate market for a cool $7.95 million — and would make Frasier Crane proud.
Grammer’s 3,000-square-foot Chelsea condo features floor-to-ceiling windows with 100 feet of panoramic views over the Hudson River and High Line, soaring 11-foot ceilings of open layout living and entertaining spaces, 3 bedrooms and 3.5 and a half and bathrooms, and clean lines that even his most beloved character would love.
The property was originally purchased by Grammer for $6.4 million in 2010, then listed for sale in 2016 for $9.75 million but recently relisted at the reduced price of $7.95 million this week, according to Architectural Digest. (Apparently, it is true what they say about apartments in Manhattan proper getting more and more affordable across the board right now.)
Part of the conceptual “vision machine” of a 23-story, 73-unit tower at 100 Eleventh Avenue designed and built in 2010 by Parisian architect (and 2008 Pritzer Prize winner) Jean Nouvel, right across the street from the Frank Gehry IAC building on the West Side Highway, the building features one of the most technologically advanced curtain wall systems in New York City and other cutting-edge luxury amenities: a private 70-foot indoor/outdoor lap pool, garden, fitness center, sauna and steam rooms, and 24/7 concierge services provided by Luxury Attache.
The Trulia listing from 2016 boasts the unit’s versatility and functionality for entertaining, including a living room with a wet bar with wine fridge, Sub-Zero mini fridge, Blanco sink and Caesarstone quartz countertops and a West-facing dining room fit for all-year gatherings around the gas-burning fireplace, where guests can watch the ships pass by along the Hudson, plus a Wolf double oven and five-seat island in the kitchen. All three bedrooms have en-suite baths, unobstructed waterfront views and complete privacy, while the master suite features a massive walk-in closet and bathroom to match. Additional luxuries include motorized shades, terrazzo floors, and a Crestron home automation system.
