Every once in awhile I like to go on the luxury real estate sites and visit the uber expensive homes. It is always nice to dream of what I would buy if I was insanely wealthy. It`s funny, they don`t often show the bathrooms. I find that strange because for me the bathroom is so important I would absolutely want to see it before visiting a house.
This home has 8 bathrooms, as usual we only get to see one of them, but boy oh boy is it a beauty. I`ve saved it for the last photo, I`m sure you will love it! It is extremely luxurious. The bathtub is made out of a solid piece of marble. However, first let`s snoop around the rest of this house.
To get a feel of how truly luxury this estate is, I`ve included parts of the description:
One of the most prominent estates in the region and only 22 miles from downtown Philadelphia, this 40,000-square-foot modern residence was designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. Situated on 70 picturesque acres, the distinctive main house is built around an impressive Belgium stone courtyard.
The master suite is a sanctuary with his and her imported marble baths, dressing rooms, a sitting room, and an office. One of the sumptuous baths is adorned with a tub carved from a solid block of marble, and a private flight of stairs leads up to a tower retreat that enjoys 360-degree panoramas of the entire property. A separate living suite has been created for a live-in au pair. An atrium connects the guest wing to two other en suite bedrooms, each with balconies and imported tile in the baths.
It sounds incredible.
Talk about a gorgeous living room! It has a bit of a modern museum vibe but still very relaxing and chic. I love the lilac chairs, the incredible chandelier, the massive doorway, the wood panelled ceiling and the blue artwork on the side wall.
The kitchen I find so-so, I am not digging the green cabinets. I would have imagined something more modern in the style of the living room. However, I do like the kitchen chairs, they remind me of the chairs outside Paris cafes and the rod iron base of the table is beautiful. Do you like this kitchen?
I would be very happy staying in this guest room. I`d love to take that painting home and the bedside table is tres chic.
Or I could leave the painting where it is and move in so I could spend all my free time practicing on their indoor tennis court and
swimming in this pool:
Now that would be the life! They also have an outdoor tennis court, so
I am wondering if any famous tennis player owns this house.
Now for the piece de resistance....
The ultra glamourous, ultra luxurious bathroom.
After seeing this bathroom I wish we could see the other 7. I can`t even imagine how grande they must be! No expense was spared in this bathroom. As I mentioned, this tub was carved from a solid piece of marble. Imagine how heavy it must be! The doorway is also lined in marble or perhaps that is the shower? It looks to be Staturio or Calacatta marble which are some of the most expensive marbles in the world. I have seen this floor design before, it is bugging me where I last saw it. The circles along the ceilings also appear to be made out of marble. The vanity is stunning, and the satin blue seat cushions add the perfect touch of colour. It must feel like stepping into heaven walking into this bathroom in the morning. Don`t you just wish you knew what these people do for a living?! I know I do!
