The Wall Street Journal caught up with Evelyn McMurray Van-Zeller, who lives in a townhouse on West 15th. It's a huge space, sure, and in a fabulous neighborhood, but what makes it unique is the thing that inhabits most of the living room space -- a ginormous swimming pool.
The 30,000-gallon pool was a fixture of the home when Ms. McMurray Van-Zeller's brother, a bachelor, lived there. She inherited the home from her brother after he passed away in 1995.
"This is definitely a trophy, bragging-rights property," admitted the owner.
From the Journal:
The renovated townhouse is split into a triplex with two apartments on the top floors that rent for $4,000 and $5,000, respectively. The entire townhouse has six bedrooms, five bathrooms and a garden with a small pool--this one for the owner's turtles. There are also five fireplaces, including one in each of the rental apartments.
The house is currently on the market for just under $11 million.
