Designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, this spectacular crown jewel of a penthouse is located directly on the High Line in West Chelsea, just moments away from Hudson Yards.

The luxurious 11,121-square-foot abode was created by merging two penthouses, and it includes seven bedrooms, nine-and-a-half baths, an expansive great room, and a wraparound terrace large enough to accommodate up to 100 guests.

The roof includes a private 3,892-square-foot terrace, which wraps around the interior lounge and pavilion and provides breathtaking views of the Chelsea skyline, the High Line, and the Empire State Building. This area also has the potential to house a pool or hot tub.

Designed inside and out by Zaha Hadid, the penthouse features the famed architect's signature curves throughout. Each level is united by a sculptural white staircase.

The extravagant home is perched on top of a boutique high rise, and it's one of only 39 residences located within the building. Leisure amenities include the city's first private IMAX theater, and a wellness center with a 75-foot-long skylit swimming pool. Scroll ahead to take a peek inside the mind-blowing property, currently listed for $48,750,000.

The home is filled with magnificent features—such as 10-foot-wide motorized windows that frame breathtaking views in three directions.

The double-corner great room on the middle level spans 1,900 square feet.
