A 35-foot indoor pool runs the length of the ground floor and is surrounded by a tiled pool deck and soaring windows. While you're taking a dip, you have two views to choose from: the adjacent patio with a waterfall, or the overhead atrium extending all the way to the third floor balcony.
The home's main level has an open floor plan encompassing the kitchen, dining room and two living spaces. Gorgeous hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves are accentuated by sunlight pouring in through the walls of glass.
A floating staircase leads up and out to a green roof lined with gravel, small boardwalks and plants. What's more, the wooded perimeter of the half-acre property provides privacy and allows homeowners to fully enjoy this urban retreat.
We think this home's cool factor leaves little room for debate, but take a closer look at all its features in the gallery below.
