Ultra-Luxe Israeli Villa With All the Trimmings Asks $9.9M

This gated villa in Herzliya Pituach, one of Israel's most affluent, tech boom–benefitting districts, has all the features of the region's specific genre of staggeringly expensive luxury real estate: a preponderance of "ultra-modern" "museum-quality finishes" in white and black, washrooms of marble and granite, and the kind of over-the-top amenities that justify a pretty outrageous price tag. Because double-height dining rooms are for squares, this svelte seven-bedroom abode has a triple-height one, along with an expansive media room, a cascading Zen fountain, and a master suite with a cool sloped roof. It's all pretty pristine and bloodless, which is where the phantasmagoric modern art comes in, trying to inject a little joie de vivre into a place that has all the warmth of an Apple store. Asking a whopping $9.9M, this 7,000-square-foot barn-shaped abode gives nothing but gloss in return. Go ahead, have a gander:
