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?
