A high-tech, fully automated mansion has hit the market in Australia for $7million. The spectacular estate has a voice-activated waterfall.
The house sits in the affluent Melbourne suburb of Brighton and boasts a sprawling rooftop garden, where you can soak the rays. High-powered house hunters have already started expressing their interest in the extravagant property. The house is fully automated, with the lights, blinds, air conditioning and intercom all activated by smartphone, iPad and the voice-operated Alexa system. This guarantees a new level of convenience and comfort with minimal manual interference required.
There is a 20m pool with an in-floor cleaning system and a voice-activated waterfall. The large rooftop garden has its own spa, providing stunning views of the city.
Multiple living areas inside the home provide plenty of space. There is a fireplace and its own theatre system.
In addition to the inside chef’s kitchen, there is an outdoor kitchen, as well as a butler’s pantry and a fitted study. The very expensive build has a brilliant design throughout. The Miele kitchen features an induction cooktop and butler’s pantry, and is complemented by an alfresco kitchen.
Outside, the house boasts a futuristic design with lots of clean cuts, sharp edges and minimalistic features. Open spaces, sliding doors and a grey-white palette give the interior a modern, laid-back vibe with lots of seating areas and wooden panelling. Ample decking on the second-floor terrace provides a lounging area. The living area on the ground floor has an open-fireplace.
The modern masterpiece is located at 1 Blairgowrie Court and is within walking distance from Golden Mile beachfront, Brighton Grammar, Firbank Girls’ Grammar and Church St. The two-storey house was designed by Frank Macchia and features a striking “concrete wave” that flows throughout.
Originally built in 2002, the residence was totally upgraded two years ago.
