Recently Listed – A Luxurious 2-Bedroom Condo That Will Steal Your Heart

The Campiello Collection in Chelsea was developed by Elad. It was one of their first condos in New York in the early 2000’s when most people would head to the Upper East Side still when looking to buy, to find themselves a Classic 6 – as the traditional 2-bedroom coop homes were referred to with their closed kitchens and small maid rooms. While no one measures square footage in the same way, these ranged from 1,400 to 1,600 Square Feet.

By 1998 developers had started to convert former warehouses in lower Manhattan and Chelsea was about to undergo great change. Formerly the Barney’s parking lot (Barney’s is back – around the corner) this building was built ground up as a boutique full-service luxury condo. One of its key features that make it stand out today are the extra spacious living rooms and bedrooms. To attract buyers downtown back then, it was all about space. By the 2004 developers started chopping the apartment sizes down so many later New Developments in Chelsea and the area had small second bedrooms and tighter living / dining combinations.

This home was recently updated with the most beautiful of 5″ wide plank white oak floors which look and feel incredible under your feet. Peaceful beyond belief, this residence is a great escape from New York without having to leave. Enjoy this short clip. Price: $ 2,995,000

Buying Real Estate: “Collections” by Compass Makes It Easier

Buying New York real estate, or any real estate usually involves working with a buyer’s broker. Traditionally since around the mid-1990s that meant hundreds of emails back and forth over the course of your search over the period sometimes of many months to track which properties you or your broker were interested in. As technology and the world moved forward to a smooth and friction-free existence in process – for some reason, real estate did not. Sure, you get alerts from portals and your agent did too, but ever miss an email? Miss a new listing before it was snapped up? No more.

Compass created “Collections” for you and for your agent to be in synch with the market and your desired parameters, 24/7 in real time. No more emails. All your notes, discussions, hopes and dreams in one online location that’s on your phone or browser.

Want to make sure you don’t miss your next dream house? Download the Compass App or visit Compass.com to get started and contact me at Tony.sargent@compass.com. Let’s get your search moving from “I’m hoping for…” to “I can’t believe I found my dream home…” – Tony Sargent

“People think that the most appropriate building is a rectangle, because that’s typically the best way of using space. But is that to say that landscape is a waste of space? The world is not a rectangle.” – Dame Zaha Hadid

Recently, when I learned the sad news of Dame Zaha Hadid’s passing, I was reminded of the moment in 2015 when Read more…

Art Rules by Bill Cunningham – The New York Times

Do you love art and people watching? Before it’s gone schedule a couple hours Sunday, March 6th to make your way to The Art Show along with several of the other shows happening (PULSE Contemporary Art Show in Chelsea on 18th Street).

While many lament that the art scene and artists have disappeared from New York (high rents and gentrification), I love these art fairs and the Thursday night Chelsea Art District openings as much for the art as the fantastic people watching! It’s also a great reminder that art and creativity is a huge part what makes New York amazing.

If you are thinking of buying art, choose wisely and with your heart. Art makes a home come alive. I find that when staging our client’s homes, significant art and warm accessories truly add the personality to a home.
