There’s a modern mansion in Chelsea where every floor of the multi-story home offers a new surprise.
The contemporary townhouse façade is a standout on West 17th Street. The eye is first drawn to a large frosted glass door.
Shawn Elliott, of Nest Seekers, led the tour.
The glass-walled garage offers just a hint of what the 11,000 square foot home has to offer.
“In the living room, you’ve got 14-foot ceilings,” Elliott said. "You’re looking at a $50,000 fireplace.”
The colors inside can change with the mood. On the other side of the grand entertaining floor is a fully bling-ed out kitchen – the handles all adorned with Swarovski crystal.
Off the kitchen, it’s an outdoor lifestyle with the first of three terraces. Formal dining was on the next level. A starry chandelier, valued at over $100,000, illuminates the space and the kitchen below.
A totally cool surprise awaits in the home’s elevator. It has a glass wall that opens to the stairs.
“You’re about to see not only a master bathroom, but a world-class spa,” Elliott said.
A huge, custom mosaic anchors both sides of the space, with an enormous shower and equally oversized tub. Glass doors lead into a huge master bedroom.
More of the home’s five bedrooms are also on this floor. The residence has a jaw-dropping list of amenities, including a theater, yoga studio, gym and 20-foot resistance pool.
The lower level has everything for an extravagant lifestyle and, of course, wine storage.
Finally, crowning it all, is a two-sided roof deck.
“This is where you want to live,” Elliott said.
To live large at 357 West 17th Street will cost you $18 million.
Rumor has it, Lady Gaga once lived in the house for a brief period.
