Tim Burton Plus Jules Verne Equals One Neon Steampunk Apartment

New, 32 comments

"At least they're honest," writes the tipster who called our attention to this listing at 120 West 29th Street. We'd be a little more generous: the apartment actually has some of the most intriguing brokerbabble we've seen in a while. Here, take a look:

This apartment is simply surreal, with a Jules Verne meets Tim Burton sensibility. This home is an incredible journey starting as you walk through the front door, which has been remodeled to resemble a submarine. The distinctive features within the home, from the pulleys and antique pipes, to the miniature planes and huge old wooden casts, have been individually hand-picked and are mired with history.
The Chef’s kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and impeccable finishes abound to compliment this one-of-a-kind apartment, from antique wrenches and tools designed as cabinet handles to the inescapable technicolored zeppelin that suspends across 32-feet of the apartments ceiling. Inescapable indeed! For fans of the neon steampunk aesthetic?and after seeing these listing pics, we might count ourselves among them?the apartment is asking $1.75 million.
