It’s not every day that you come across a listing that describes a property as “surreal, retro-industrial, and steampunk,” so I was eager to get a look at this New York City loft. I wouldn’t be surprised if an artist or set designer lives here because the rooms look like something out of a sci-fi fantasy flick.
There aren’t any photos of it, but the listing promises a “submarine-style front entry, complete with keypad locking system and working porthole.” Wow. You could call that a “unique selling feature.”
The 1,800 square-foot apartment is in Chelsea, and the asking price is $1.75 million. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.
Steampunk refers to the era when steam power was still widely used. It also includes elements of science fiction and fantasy. Think Jules Verne and how the Victorians in England envisioned the future would be.
The bathroom appears to be designed to look like something out of an old gas station. And I’m a little baffled by the toadstool in the shower…
Gotta admire the imagination that went into this place, even though I wouldn’t want to live in it. It’s too much like a movie set for me. Would be fun to look around, though, and meet the creative person who designed it.

P.S. Come back tomorrow to see the house from “Mrs. Doubtfire.“ Love that one!
