It's Free to Look: Intelligent Design

It’s a home that’s done its homework. Brown Harris Stevens calls it a “trophy” apartment, “renovated with careful attention to every detail of modern living.”

Located at 160 West 66th Street, this apartment knows just how to tempt you, beginning from the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook Central Park, the midtown skyline, the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River. Then, to satisfy your taste for technology, the customized kitchen “takes full advantage of space and light” along with its state-of-the-art lighting, cabinetry, granite countertops and appliances.

Mosey over to the master suite, and you’ll experience a “clever” office wired for sound, cable, fax and telephone, as well as an ensuite bathroom with a Whirlpool bath. The second and third bedrooms are also fully equipped for wall-mounted entertainment systems. Other “thoughtful” additions include a Lutron lighting system, integrated surround sound and automated window treatments. Even the layout is intelligent, as each room “flows seamlessly” into the next for floorplan perfection.

The condo also has direct access to the Lincoln Center Promenade, and is “perfectly situated to take advantage of the city’s finest entertainment and cultural destinations.” Offering “every conceivable amenity”–private swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym, reception room, catering kitchen–and a prime location to boot, 160 West 66th Street takes the idea of a “smart home” to a whole new level.

Just don’t spend too much time in that Whirlpool bath, playing with the automatic window-shades; if you forget to increase your own mind, your house just may outsmart you.
