You drive by a rolling estate, a McMansion set of the road walled in with winding driveway visible behind the security titanium gate, night vision cameras, armed serious looking guard employees.The amount and cut of the angled glass, stone work, shrubbery and landscaping hit the corner of your eye. As high end Italian and German cars, Alpha Ones, other decked out SUV's, stretch this and that whizz by you. Careful not to hit anything as it would be expensive. Involve lawyers that defend OJ's, the stars. Probably jail time too. And later an ankle bracelet during the probationary period for the infraction in this posh neighborhood where they don't have garage sales. Just toss the stuff, update with something shinier, more sleek, more top shelf.
The home, setting, zip code is pretty impressive until you think of the expense, the overhead. And the why why why Mr Anderson do you do it? If you are rich, you need to look kingly, regal, in a league of your own. And what about accessories inside the place? We're not talking the model or year chopper on the heliport circle outside the terrace built of imported this and that. Overlooking breath taking views, something with water.
Something as basic as the appliances have to reek luxury, hideously expensive, nothing found on the set where Trailer Park Boys is filmed.
And you thought your fifth warming ring on the glass top Kenmore electric range was hot stuff. Pretty cool.
We're talking exotic, rare in suburbia subdivisions of ranches, capes, split levels. But standard equipment on the home circuit of boatloads of money owners. Or obtained by nose bleed section credit lenders where "your mileage may vary", where it is no object for now. Boils down to the money is the air, water, artificial life blood, purpose of the sport. To flaunt it, swim in it, get lost in the ambrosia. The designer silk, crystal, platinum and pearls, polo playing horsing around lifestyle of it all. So how to deck out just the kitchen, the area the help only sees, labors in. What today would be standard equipment in a luxury spread to fit in, to be "it"?
Well Sub Zero takes care of the refrigerator, what they tout as "food preservation" angle. And it's little brother team appliance for the God's Wolf holds down the cooking of that exquisite food on the menu tonight for that exclusive dinner party. Where the food was flown in special from all four corners of the world.
In fact the wine cooler section of the site reminds all of us "wine that is well cared for becomes a meal's most worthy companion."Ha...always thought fresh, cold, tall local glass of milk did that but whatever. To each his own.
Here is one website that is the cat's meow. Neat, slick looking, working high end appliance store where you can deal direct, save some money. And I thought promoting in a new listing the Jenn-Air down draft cooking grill, griddle was a big deal, something you did not see every day. This kitchen appliance site even lets you see with the kitchen with different floors, walls, counter tops, cabinets, everything in a variety of choices. Think our real estate sites will offer the same what it would look like someday with this, this or this type of windows on that front full angled shot? The color change is not so big a whiz bang as building your own vehicle has offered that feature for quite some time now. But adding landscaping, reversing the driveway, etc might help a place that did not make the real estate buyer's short list. The cut suddenly worth a second swimsuit runway cake walk re-peek, renewed consideration.
Miele, Northland, Thermador and Viking are also pricey kitchen appliance makers along with Sub-Zero, Wolf.Maine, pretty meat and potato place, not pretentious. Just like the down to earth, friendly people here.
