Luxury Real Estate Often Includes the Luxurious Home SpaAugust 29, 2011
The spa atmosphere evokes feelings of relaxation, peace and purity and while visiting a spa is always a treat . . . here are what some of the luxury real estate homes are including in their home spas:
Aequum: Combining the expertise of an osteopath and a bespoke furniture craftsman, British massage couch company Aequum creates voluptuously curved, polished hardwood massage tables, dressed in Swedish Elmosoft leather. The Aureus massage couch features an ergonomically contoured face rest, detachable side armrests and eiderdown head and leg pillows.
Wellness Enterprises: The company’s Wellness Shower helps reduce the signs of aging and repair damaged hair by removing harmful free radicals from the shower and enhancing it with reduced negative ions and rare Japanese volcanic minerals. Containing one replaceable cartridge, the unit arrives in a hand-polished bamboo box wrapped in biodegradable spun sugar.
Sanijet: While the fixed pipes in most whirlpool tubs are prime breeding grounds for harmful bacteria, Sanijet Spa Baths are outfitted with easy-to-clean, removable jets instead. The company’s baths can be equipped with up to 12 ultraquiet jets that propel water at 18 to 20 gallons per minute.
Stone Forest: Doubling as a millions-of-years-old geological find and a stunning in-home water feature, Stone Forest’s Basalt Dome fountains are chiseled from a single basalt boulder. The Santa Fe company, known for its granite and copper sculptures, preserves each boulder’s individual coloring (evidence of natural oxidation) while delicately exposing its black interior.
ThermaSol: The company is taking the home spa to a new level, combining music, aromatherapy and chromatherapy with the curative effects of steam. ThermaSol’s Premium Control Package converts your home shower into a steam bath and includes six distilled essential oils and an LED light and music system that features high-performance speakers and a built-in FM receiver with MP3, CD, DVD, satellite radio and cable box capabilities. All functions can be accessed by a waterproof remote control.
