House of the Week: $4.3 million for a modern mansion with a resort-like pool
The Place: A modern, five-bedroom house nestled among the manicured lawns and regal homes of Bedford Park.
Bragging Rights: Even fancy butler’s pantries seem lame when compared to this place’s full-fledged second kitchen, which has a six-burner range, fridge, dishwasher and industrial sink.
Big Selling Point: The drool-worthy backyard with its elegant rectangular swimming pool, hot tub and gas-powered fire pit. There’s no need to drive three hours to a cottage when you can swim and make s’mores in the backyard.
Possible Deal Breaker: With nine separate levels, the home makes great use of vertical space. However, though architecture buffs and Cosmo Kramer would probably love the look, it’s not ideal for small kids and smaller dogs.
By the Numbers:
• 250-bottle wine cellar
• 9 levels
• 8 bathrooms
• 5 bedrooms
• 2 kitchens
• 1 sauna
• 1 in-ground pool
• 1 hot tub
• 1 outdoor fireplace
