First rule for marketing design & engineering: say German whenever possible. The listing for this west town 4BR contemporary makes good on this when describing the kitchen, and you can't help wanting to know just how good a shot the espresso machine deals out. The kitchen's not the only sleek room here, with the terraced front room, master bath, and basement lounge getting the Curbed gold star. Speaking of lounges, there's a pervasive loungey-ness throughout. We don't see a single straight-backed chair apart from the dining set. Outdoor space includes rooftop and garage top decks, and a balcony. At the end the day, there's a sauna to keep you forever young and vital. Our only beef: It's dimly lit and darkly painted. Just listed for $1.199M.
