Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich submits plans to turn three New York homes into stunning $78m mansion

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has submitted further plans for an incredible multi-million dollar mansion in New York.

The Russian billionaire wants to convert three homes into one $78million mansion on the city's Upper East Side.

He spent months battling to turn the townhouses into a five-story home.

Initial plans were delayed by New York's Landmark's Preservation Commission but they were approved after revisions.

Abramovich wants to combine the three properties along East 75th Street near Central Park into one house with a pool, sauna and a two-floor art room.

The stunning plans also include a central atrium, a roof-top garden and a library.

Despite being approved by the commission, the plans must also be cleared by the Department of Buildings.

The Chelsea chief bought the £125m family home, which measures at a staggering 16,000 sq/ft, in 2009.

The luxury complex is set to cost him around £28m, reports the Sun.
