here was a time in history when designers began to imagine what the house of the future would look like. Ultrasonic dishwashers, waterless bathrooms, and even beds that make themselves in the morning; these sci-fi scenes were more amusement park attractions than they were practical home plans. But now that the future is actually here, we can see that same spirit of innovation and inspiration in the home of today. This home is the embodiment of all of those futuristic promises, but without the sterile sci-fi sensationalism. Instead, it’s a masterpiece that melds together modern amenities with timeless touches, sitting at the confluence of comfort and cutting edge. To start, its impressive architecture takes advantage of the unique .53 acre lot and layout of the property. Each of the three structures-main residence, garage, and pool house-is positioned perfectly to surround the pool and create your own private enclave. Each structure’s design complements the others with their bold modern lines, wood and steel accents. Each piece of the puzzle sits seamlessly together to create one cohesive masterpiece. The main residence boasts six bedrooms and six bathrooms, each with top of the line touches and a flawless layout. Of particular note are the windows, which let light in at every turn and make the already spacious ceiling seem sky high. While there’s no ultrasonic dishwasher, the kitchen far surpasses those nostalgic dreams of yesteryear with its hidden pantry, separate fridge and freezer, floating shelves, and a dedicated drinkware drawer. There’s plenty of food with friends in your future here. Working from home is the new normal, so this home hosts a home office-slash-library with its own dedicated bathroom for maximum efficiency and focus. You’ll fill those beautiful built-in shelves with all the Jules Verne and HG Wells in your collection. Ample space is given for a dining room, living room with a sleek gas fireplace. In fact, this home has one thing that none of those 1950’s dreamers ever imagined: plenty of storage, closet space and laundry on every level. The main floor is rounded out by the stunning primary retreat. This is truly a sanctuary and a place to recharge, relax, wake up with a beautiful pool view and live in the present. Just the bedroom portion of the suite itself is larger than many NYC apartments, with the added bonus of a deck that opens out to overlook the pool. That same spacious sensibility carries to the closet, and over to the bathroom. Enjoy a dual shower (they didn’t predict that one back in the day), dual vanity, and a tub so luxurious you’ll want to have your mail forwarded there. For maximum modern convenience, the laundry is located ensuite as well. Upstairs you’ll find two more bedrooms and bathrooms, plus an additional storage area and an upper living room. The basement houses two more bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a large game area, family room and kitchenette. Whether it’s the kids or your own inner kid at heart, the basement is where you go to let loose, take in a game, or have your movie night. We never could have imagined just a few decades ago how hectic and stressful life would get. While the main home helps ease the burdens of modern life, it’s the pool house (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms adding an additional 1175 SQ FT) that really addresses the challenges of modern life. Yes, the pool is definitely a big help in relaxation, but the 1175 sq/ft structure is a temple to tension relief. Step out of the sun, grab a quick rinse in the outdoor shower, and head into the pool lounge for a refreshing drink from the kitchenette. Whatever you choose, the weight of your day is no match for your own private resort feel getaway. The future is now.
