Karim Rashid's former residence at 357 West 17th Street in Chelsea has been redesigned into a 5-story, 12,000-square-foot mansion. We first got a look at the renderings in September last year, a few months before the townhouse was completed. Developers Wonder Works Construction acquired the townhouse for $9.35 million and brought on Andres Escobar and Workshop Design + Architecture for the overhaul. The residence now includes five bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and amenities one would normally see in a high-rise condo. Not surprisingly, this renovated pre-war mansion comes with a hefty $36.8 million price tag.
357 West 17th Street features 11,000 square feet of some seriously spacious living space and an additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor space. The residence is elegant yet inviting through its accentuation of white, cream, and dark wood tones. The muted design scheme is carefully blended with Italian brands and aesthetics and emphasized with stunning details like Swarovski crystals and leather-like accents.

The mansion was meticulously designed for grand entertaining as evidenced by its restaurant-quality kitchen with soaring ceilings. The kitchen also has two massive islands, two ovens and two pairs of refrigerator-freezers. Next up, the 26-foot by 23-foot living room features a must-have DaVinci gas fireplace which adds a warm focal point to such a luxurious space. An added plus to living in this mansion includes the mezzanine formal dining area that is able to seat more than a dozen guests comfortably.

There are four bedroom suites, each containing en-suite bathrooms and a full-floor master suite with twin bathrooms, a powder room, kitchenette, sitting rooms, custom cabinetry and plenty of wardrobe space. The master suite level also has an office and another bathroom.

Lucky residents will enjoy a ton of outdoor space throughout the home. The mansion has a small garden, two oversized rear terraces on the second and fifth floor, and a beautiful roof deck surrounded by 360 degree Manhattan views. Amenities in the residence are definitely comparable to those of newer condos. Of course, these amenities don't require sharing with other residents. There is a 400-bottle capacity, temperature-controlled wine cellar, along with additional wine refrigerators in the home's primary kitchen, and two wet bars. The cellar-level features a swimming pool, a steam/sauna and a modern fitness center. There's even a first-floor soundproof home theater with stadium seating, a 3D HD projection and THX Dolby surround sound.

WonderWorks Construction is also responsible for the Williamsburg's Oosten at 429 Kent Avenue as well as the in-progress 48-unit project Vitre in Yorkville.
