This Townhouse Has An $11 Million Swimming Pool For A Living Room

Living in New York City you see some pretty unusual things, people and real estate included. But really, this property owned by the McMurray Van-Zeller clan is unlike anything we've spied, with a 13-by-15 foot pool located smack dab in the middle of their living room (and leaving little room for much else). Their large Chelsea brownstone located on West 15th Street is currently selling for a whopping $11 million dollars and we might just need to see it in person to believe it—really, the video below just really wasn't enough. From making sure the furniture doesn't clash to arranging their medieval art around pool chairs, every decorating choice was centralized around their prized possession—you guessed it—the swimming pool. While all of this is fascinating, we were much more intrigued by how Ms. Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller looks like she would make a perfect addition to the Real Housewives of New York. Jump to three minute mark and watch Evelyn unleash her dog, Chloe in their upstairs "apartment" for their turtles. Oh, so this is how rich people spend their money....Sonja, are you watching?
