I read something yesterday that really surprised me. Did you know that one of the most desired features these days for a high-end home in California is apparently a moat! The home below belonging to Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, is sporting one.
So is Christina Aguilera’s home. Since both of the these folks are celebrities, maybe it’s a way to ward off the paparizzi…do you think? They would need waterproof cameras and a wetsuit to get close.
This Beverly Hill’s home with its “wraparound moat feature” was designed by Architect Michael Palumbo.
You know what the first thing was that popped into my mind when I saw these three homes?
This. Yep, Cinderella’s castle in Disney World.
Interestingly, some of the other “luxury” features and amenities being asked for are dental chairs, Botox rooms, and garages that look like high-end showrooms. The garage thing didn’t surprise me but dental chairs did!
If you were building a fancy, schmancy home today and money was no object, what “most desired” feature would you want to incorporate? I don’t think a moat would be very high on my list, nor would a dental chair or a Botox room.
Mine would probably be a butler’s pantry. I need to think bigger, don’t I?
Okay, how about a really big, butler’s pantry! A Butler to go with it would be pretty nice, too.
What luxury feature or features would you include in your dream home?
