It was thoughtfully planned and impeccably executed with the highest quality appliances and finishes that will stand the test of time and use. In the cooks kitchen, an unpolished granite countertop and stainless steel cabinets encase top-line appliances that include a Capital 5-burner range with integrated wok burner and convection oven, hot and cold filtered water, an Insinkerator Batch garbage disposal, and fridge and dishwasher by Sub-Zero and Miele. The second bathroom is lined in highly-polished steel penny tile and accented with a black Caesarstone countertop. Its stand-up shower offers a fold-down teak seat. The master bathroom, lined in Porcelanosa Kathmandu stone, features a deep soaking jacuzzi tub and Thermasol steam shower, integrated sound and video and a double-width slate vanity. The separate laundry room is outfitted with a Miele washer and dryer and moisture-proof steel shelving.
With its plush carpeting and steel finishes, this home evokes the suave allure befitting a classic James Bond, but with 21st Century technology and automation features that were a mere fantasy for Bond. Every detail was carefully considered to create a customized home that maximizes both comfort and convenience. Nowhere is that more evident than in the master bathroom, whose centerpiece is a Kohler Numi toilet: a feat of technology and engineering that James Bond himself could not have imagined. Its motion-activated open and close mechanisms, self-cleaning and seat-warming capabilities, and integrated music player allow you to automate the heavy lifting.
