 A beautiful smart home has hit the market in London. Nearly everything in this home can be controlled by tablet or smartphone, from the alarm system to built-in speakers.

This home doesn’t sacrifice style for technology, however.

The owner told the Wall Street Journal that her goal was to create “a cozy, relaxing and family-orientated environment, but with all the high-end appliances and furnishings synonymous with a prime London property.”

It’s listed with Savills for 16 million pounds, or $26.8 million.

The 9,559-square-foot home is located on a large lot overlooking Hurlingham Park, in London’s Fulham neighborhood. Even the front gates can be secured with a tablet or smartphone.

The house is one of only three properties in the park.

Inside, the home has gorgeous tile floors and a swooping staircase.

The fireplace in this reception room can be turned on with a remote control.

A stunning chandelier commands attention in the dining room.

The kitchen is sleek. The Sub-Zero refrigerator comes complete with a wine cooler and iPad docking station.

The master bath is gorgeous, and there’s a flatscreen TV embedded into one of the walls.

On the lower level, a bar room features a temperature-controlled wine storage unit.

There’s also a luxurious home theater that can be controlled with an iPad or smartphone.

 

And this 12-meter swimming pool is an added bonus.
