No one wants to step out of the shower or bath into a chilly room. That’s why one of life’s simple pleasures for dwellers of older buildings is warming towels on the radiator. This pleasure has evolved into the heated towel valet. Those methods have been trumped by this mansion’s master bath, where bathers can warm their towels, robe, and slippers by the marble fireplace. There's also a plush lounge that’s conveniently placed next to the fireplace, which, by the way, is in the bathroom. The mansion is in a gated community and has a circular wet bar, a negative edge pool with swim-up bar, and an outdoor kitchen.

Did I mention there is a fireplace in the bathroom?
