If this Residential Design looks a little like a commercial building your not imagining things. The owner of this 16,341 sq. ft. residence was a commercial developer and much of the materials used were reclaimed and/recycled from the demolition of previous projects.
Over 50% of the square footage on the first floor is devoted to the garage. There are three primary bays for vehicular access. The outermost bay is deep enough to accommodate a full size bus or recreational vehicle. Each of the other two bays can hold two vehicle at ground level, with another 2 vehicles (each bay) being suspended above the floor with commercial vehicular lifts. All told, while officially an 8 car garage, it could hold as many as 12-14 vehicles (if the RV wasn’t parked there).
The house is only 2 bedrooms but contains 4 bathrooms. This house is not designed for a family, it is designed for entertaining. The kitchen is a Chef’s Dream Kitchen with all the amenities that a professional chef would ever want, including separate refrigerator / freezers and top of the line appliances.
The marble staircase is beautiful, but why take the stairs when you can use the full size commercial elevator. Then cross the glass floor bridge to the 2nd floor living spaces.
Grab a bottle of your favorite wine from the 408 sq. ft. climate controlled wine cellar and head up to the rooftop deck to relax in the spa or just sit next to the fire pit on the roof. Maybe even throw a couple of shrimps on the bar-b-que.
Of course, a state of the art residence like this deserves “redundant” state of the art security systems to keep the home safe.
