Beauty and mind, Form and function, style and substance – however you want to look at it, the best of both worlds is combined on two levels in this spacious tech smart home. The interior, built in 1984, has been completely renovated to create bright rooms that are enhanced by high-quality surfaces.

The digital functions are subtle and tasteful, but impressive nonetheless. The entire house is controlled by a Savant system, a premium program that can wake you up by opening the bedroom screens and playing a high-energy playlist at a set time. Then set the pool to an ideal temperature so that you can relax immediately after a long day coming home. The app can be used to control and configure everything from HVAC to lighting, video cameras and finger readers on door locks. Not only does it sound incredibly luxurious, it is also energy efficient to automatically turn off lights in empty rooms.

At the analogue end, sunshine streams through skylights and large windows in almost every room, underscoring the pattern of wallpaper that stands next to textures made of wood and stone. The 7,600 square meter area is ideally designed for a good party. The lower level offers a stylish bar and plenty of space for game tables or relaxation. Outside there are several decks of different sizes for small and large gatherings and a lounge by the glamorous pool. A nearby outdoor kitchen guarantees that drinks stay ice cold.

Each of the five bedrooms feels like a retreat with great views of nature on 1.2 acres (a rare find in Carmel), while the five and a half bathrooms have impressive tile work and elegant finishes. You don’t have to choose between automation or aesthetics. In this house you can remotely control your cake and eat it too.
