Continuing from yesterday's post, we started the home tour in the kitchen/family room. Everything was sleek and modern with cabinets that had no handles but opened to the touch, a stove top that disappeared into the counter and a refrigerator that looked just like the cabinetry.
It was all very sleek and modern looking.
We toured the master bedroom and bath and both were just as modern looking as the this area. Then the salesman encouraged us to check out the lower level. We didn't even know the place had a lower level.
The lower level had a theatre style entertainment room with a wet bar.
And, a big surprise, the garage! On the lower level!
We knew we were in trouble when we saw this room and realized that the garage operated as an elevator. You drove in at ground level, push a button and go down to the lower level. In addition to this phenomenon, there were three more bedrooms each with it's own bath and a lovely wine storage facility that you can see a tiny corner of to the far left. There was even a small elevator to take people down to this area in case you didn't want to use the stairs. So how much does all this luxury cost? $3,595,000.00! Obviously, we were way out of our price range.
I have to admit, the house had some pretty amazing features and decor but really, why do you need your garage to be an elevator? Are there people out there who want to look at their cars while entertaining guests? And, what happens if the power goes out and your car is on the lower level? So many questions. It boggles the mind!
