Every so often, a truly unique listing hits the market that’s spectacular beyond words. In this case, it’s this 6,400-square-foot warehouse conversion in West Chelsea, asking a cool $18.5 million.

According to the listing description for this unorthodox home, the space is configured as a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath abode that spans four levels and features both ground and parlor level entrances. In the central atrium, ceilings soar a mind-boggling 32 feet high, with exposed wooden beams, while other dramatic details include the plethora of exposed brick throughout the home, double height rooms with 20-foot-high ceilings, a series of stairs that connect the floors, and a footbridge located on the third floor.

There’s a multitude of ways in which one can utilize this space. After all, it includes a studio on the lower level, an office space on the entry floor, an expansive atrium on the third floor with three skylights, a library on the fourth floor, and a glass-enclosed terrace that overlooks the garden. There’s also the huge open kitchen that’s flourished with custom cabinetry and even comes with “salvaged Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels.”

Getting back to the garden, you get 750 square feet of yard space with a bit of landscaping (though it could use some more), a walkway crafted from “original Dutch ballast cobblestones,” and 22-foot-tall walls that give privacy from the outside world.
