Sometimes it just takes a little vision to identify a client’s perfect home,
Citi Habitats agent, David A. Palmieri recently helped his client close on 256 West 21st Street #2B, an alcove studio co-op, for $585,000 (pictured top).
Located in Chelsea, the home features south-facing garden views, 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed brick accent walls and a decorative fireplace. A hinged sliding barn door and partial wall separate the sleeping and living areas.
“I was able to leverage my background in architecture to show my vision of the space to my client,” Palmieri said. “We could take this loft-like studio and easily make it into a one-bedroom with a lot of charm.”
Palmieri’s client appreciated the opportunity to make a one-of-a-kind home. After some negotiation, they closed on the unit for $25,000 off the $610,000 asking price.
“As agents, it’s our job to show clients all the potential a home can have,” Palmieri said. “Walls can be put up or knocked down, but a great location lasts forever.”
