It is said to sell an apartment, one should make it as neutral as possible — returning walls to white and decluttering — so potential owners can best visualize themselves in it. All that went out the floor-to-ceiling-windows of this mad-for-mod-pad, which just hit the market and appears to have been renovated to look like an Austin Powers set.

Still, it seems fitting for this over-the-top decor to be housed in such a talked about building. Set in the iconic and historically rich Dakota (think: Rosemary’s Baby, John Lennon and Vanilla Sky), this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom apartment boasts 12-foot ceilings, an office, laundry area, library, expansive city views and a $17.5 million price tag. What’s even literally hotter? It also boasts seven fireplaces! However, we’re not totally sure about its vertigo-inducing pattern clashes and twee styling.

Moreover, it’s a bit of a contradiction, since, even with its colorful splashes and whimsy, the unit has retained a lot of historic charm. 6sqft explains, “The master bedroom is also playing with modern design, although its still got its moldings, dark wood door frame and the wood floors.”

And maybe most noteworthy is a closet to house your cool duds that is big enough to rival most NYC studio apartments.
