If you have about $1.6 million lying around and a hankering for the classically quirky innovation of the Victorian era, then this New York City apartment situated in Chelsea is your chrono-plasmatic cup of tea. The flat is 1,800+ square feet of zany Steampunk delight. The large kitchen rests under a LED glowing Zeppelin, a hidden bathroom behind cogs and pulleys, a bedroom underneath a silk greenhouse-frame, and a spacious 500 square foot terrace surrounded by green bamboo. The front door is an oxidized submarine hatch with a locking porthole from the inside as if it came right off Captain Nemo’s Nautilus. Feast your eyes on a literal living museum of a wondrous age gone by.
