100 West 18th Street, Condo Perfection In Chelsea


There are 2 types of condo buyers in today's market: those who settle and those who will settle only for the best. For those that fit into the latter category, 100 West 18th Street, a Brauser Group Development, could be the place for you.
I'm a perfectionist and I've looked at 100's of new condos over the course of the last couple of years, and I'll admit, I am a tough critic. If you try to slip in a GE Profile fridge next to a Miele dishwasher the experience is blown for me! Unfortunately, in nearly every condo you step into, you can instantly identify where the developer was trying to save money. That is not the case with 100 West 18th Street, where it quickly becomes obvious that no expense was spared.
It appears that The Brauser Group shares my values when it comes to quality and craftsmanship. Start with the kitchen, which is absolutely flawless. This open kitchen features honed black granite counters, white oak cabinets, and an exceptional group of appliances from Miele and Sub-Zero including both a conventional and convection oven. Additionally, the kitchen is outfitted with a garbage disposal, 26 bottle wine cooler, and a built-in Miele Nespresso coffee and expresso maker. The spa inspired baths are also a marvel to behold. The master bath, with both an over sized Tea For Two soaking tub and a walk-in European shower features gorgeous cut limestone (which I have only seen in apartments twice the price), and lava stone finishes. The living and bedroom areas have over sized windows, ceiling heights ranging from 9'7"to 10'4", interlocking buckle-proof floors, and an added touch that I love- a built-in iPod docking station in the master. I'm sure for a little extra they'd be happy to wire the entire apartment for you.
Finally, the building, while intimate at 11 stories, has every amenity you'd expect from a larger building. 100 West 18th features 24 hour doorman, concierge, cold storage for Fresh Direct, private fitness center, club room, and two communal outdoor spaces- a Zen Garden and a fabulous landscaped roof deck equipped with barbecues, outdoor showers, and drop dead city views. The location is also phenomenal. Located on West 18th and 6th Avenue on the historic Ladies Mile, you have the luxury of drawing from an incredible array of shopping, dining, and nightlife in Chelsea, Union Square, and the West Village.
Like they say, good things come in small packages, and in this case, this is a package I could get comfortable with very easily.
