Since inheriting this Chelsea apartment from her brother in 1995, Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller and her family have enjoyed the lifestyle of what she describes as her “trophy, bragging-rights property”. Now these bragging rights are officially up for grabs, that is for anyone willing to spend $10.955 million to be exact.
Unassuming from the outside, this 5-story gem, located on West 17th between 7th and 8th Avenue, fulfills any lifelong dream, complete with six bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and an indoor swimming pool of course. Originally built in 1975, the pool is surrounded by cave-like, medieval, architecture with a Moroccan flair. As if a 15×30 foot swimming pool in the center of your living room were just not enough, the property also comes equipped with it’s own private sauna and gym. In addition, the 5,000 square foot home has access to a lush rooftop garden with exquisite solarium greenhouse framework and yet another, smaller, pool.
With no more perfect a space to entertain guests, the one-of-a-kind property is simultaneously designed for privacy and comfort. Five wood-burning fireplaces and a cozy library/office gives you the perfect balance between practicality and play. What else could you possibly ask for?
