Take a look at this special Chelsea steampunk loft and consider this: it costs $1.7 million. The entire house looks like it's straight out of an H.G. Wells or H.P. Lovecraft book/movie, starting with the front door which is modeled after a submarine porthole.

The rest of the house is just as freaky and otherworldly, including large wooden gears that weigh 500 pounds, a blimp mounted on the ceiling that changes colors, and sepia colored concrete floors. The loft is 1,800 feet, contains one bedroom and two bathrooms. The sole bedroom in the Chelsea steampunk loft is decorated in the style of an exploding Zeppelin, with a bed that raises and lowers when a deactivated bomb switch is flipped.

The Chelsea steampunk loft also comes with a private terrace. All ballin' science-fiction fans: this is the home for you. Click through our gallery or view the video for a more detailed look at this unusual masterpiece.
