East Hampton House, New York is for sale at Rp. 54.4 billion
Ever imagined inhabiting a transparent house? A house in East Hampton, New York built with glass facades. All walls in this house are built from transparent material. Even from the outside, all residents’ activities can be clearly seen. The idea to make this transparent house is the work of architect Juan A. Figueroa.
Although open, but the privacy of residents is still protected and safe. This is because the house is surrounded by 8,000 square meters of yard. From inside the house, residents can enjoy views of the entire courtyard.
The residence, which was built in 2016 with an area of 929 square meters, was sold at a price of 3.99 million US dollars or around Rp. 54.4 billion. Another uniqueness of this house is the first floor of the house designed with an open concept. The first floor is designed without a partition, so that some rooms, such as the kitchen, family room, and dining room are connected with other space functions. To give a broader impression, the architect did not burden the room with poles.
This house in East Hampton, New York, is equipped with six bedrooms and six bathrooms plus half a bathroom. All bathrooms are designed with marble so that it gives the impression of luxury. Three stairs are provided in this house. The first staircase is designed to lead to the main bedroom. While the second staircase was built to go directly to the guest bedroom.
While the last ladder is a link built to go to the underground floor. On this floor, there are four garages. Uniquely, this area is connected to a highway through an underground tunnel. The additional space in the basement can be used for various purposes such as private cinemas, recreation rooms, or just a storage area. The house is also equipped with a Smart Home system where residents can control all devices in the house, such as gates, lighting systems, and air conditioning devices.
For some people cleaning the house is a saturating activity. Only a small number of people who view washing dishes, folding clothes, sweeping and mopping the floor are part of our efforts to improve the quality of health.
completing your daily homework will not only make your home clean, but it will also clear your mind and make it more peaceful. “When we deliberately do something in our lives in a way that invites ease and peace, it will feel different than if we do something because of stress or obligation,” said a psychologist, Ariane Machin. “Taking an approach to what we do will bring a sense of calm to our body’s system, increase oxygen flow, and contribute to ourselves with satisfaction,” he added.
Resolving small and easy tasks is also believed to increase one’s attention to bigger and tense tasks. This is due to completing simple tasks such as vacuuming, simultaneously making you avoid feeling full of pressure and giving a sense of satisfaction to the achievements that have been made. In the end, completing routine work at home is not just needed, but also helps you to nourish your mind and body. Thus, if one day you have to face work such as washing clothes, folding clothes that are dry, sweeping and cleaning dust, do not complain first. Consider the positive benefits that you can get from completing these things.
