A Manhattan residence owned by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei appeared for sale on the New York open market this month. The pied-a-terre condo in West Chelsea is priced at $2 million.
The property contains one bedroom and two baths across its 1,409 sq. ft. of interior living area. Its loft layout includes oversized windows and 12-foot ceilings. It is presently designed in a neutral style, with natural-toned hardwood floors and bright white walls and ceilings.
A bit of color sneaks into the kitchen, where soft blue is used for the cabinetry; however reticent, the dash of cool is welcome in an otherwise white-and-stainless treatment, and it is echoed, as expected, in the master bath. The unit also features a den and studio which could easily be converted into a second bedroom.
Views from the apartment take in London Terrace. The building features a rooftop deck, a courtyard meditation garden, and a theater and gym.
