Location: Hollywood Hills, Calif.
The Skinny: Here's a sleek Hollywood Hills house that is definitely not for the technophobic: with self-closing kitchen cabinets, an automated Neorest toilet in the master bathroom, and a sound system that's controlled via a Smarthome system, this place might very well be among the first to throw off the shackles of human domination when the A.I. singularity occurs. Until that unhappy moment arrives, though, the Jay Vanos design provides everything an early-20th-century free-range human could want in modern luxury. Inside there are Miele appliances in the kitchen (including a built-in coffee system and wine refrigerator) and heated bathroom floors; outside there's an infinity pool with a swim-up bar and spa, all with panoramic city views. The 5,200-square-foot home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms (one full, three partial) that are served by an elevator which, hopefully, is not powered by a semi-autonomous computer chip nurturing a murderous rage toward the people who make it go up and down all day, every day. The listing is asking $7.825M, regardless of whether Skynet is about to awaken or not.
