Fancy car and gobs of cash aside, the design-savvy house and its many amenities are plenty exciting. Here are the top four reasons we like it.
The wet bar
A far cry from the wet bars of decades past, this one is inviting, it seats three, and is large enough to invite a small soiree. Plus, there's a Dacor Discovery WineStation, an automated, temperature controlled, four-bottle wine dispensing and preservation system that lets guests select their favorite wine and pour as much or as little as they please.
The personal assistant
What if your refrigerator could take a photo of its contents and send said photo to your phone? Maybe it could coordinate everyone’s schedule, leave notes and reminders, stream music, and display pictures, too. This home has the Samsung’s Family Hub Smart Refrigerator, which does all this, and — indeed — more.
The home also has PetCube, a camera that lets you see, talk to, and (sorta) play with your pet when you’re not home. For a good laugh, engage its moving laser from your smartphone.
