“There are things in this home which you will never see in a New York City home,” Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller says of her townhouse in the above clip from LXTV’s Open House, and she’s right: Manhattan homeowners don’t usually drop swimming pools into their living rooms. The 5,000-square-foot house at 232 West 15th Street–listed by CORE’s Maggie Kent and David Grossmann–is certainly one of the most unique properties in Chelsea (which is probably why the television cameras can’t resist it), but it’s not the only one-of-a-kind residence in the ‘hood.
It didn’t take long to get another look at the incredible bronze floor in the Yves penthouse that caught the Daily News‘ eye recently. CBS 2’s Emily Smith just dropped by Stuart Sussman’s $10.4 million Chelsea listing to find out from its owner how the full-floor spread in the all-glass Yves manages to mix a few classic elements with its more modern tendencies. (Hint: A museum’s worth of practically priceless art doesn’t hurt.) Check out Emily Smith’s Living Large segment in its entirety below.
