A Former This Week’s Find Returns to the Market

Just on the other side of Macarthur Boulevard, this former This Week’s Find is thoroughly modernized, both in aesthetic and between the walls. The current owner retrofitted the house with smart and technologically-advanced features during a 2011 renovation, enabling control of electronics, temperature and lighting via a smartphone or tablet. Both the kitchen and the master walk-in closet have sleek steel-and-wood cabinetry and shelving systems. The house also has a two-car garage that includes an electric car charging station and a terrace with a hot tub.
