The bling: Leisure. It’s your life, right? You’ve got the money to play all day, and my goodness, you’re going to fritter it away having fun. There’s absolutely no time to sit back and take it all for granted: a seamless cycle of entertainment and relaxation doesn’t happen by accident, you have to build it into your routine. No slacking allowed. It would all be so much easier if you could just live at your local (very exclusive and expensive) health club, but then you would have to share, and that will never do. But panic not. We at Big Fat Deal are always scouring the province searching for the perfect pad to fit every niche and cranny, and yes, we have turned up your ideal space. It may look like a (relatively) upscale community centre, but this pleasure palace is filled to the brim with distractions to keep the ennui at bay. You can swim, shoot pool, swig wine and saturate yourself in Netflix. Indeed, if you can actually find a way to split yourself in two, you can binge watch Narcos and Game of Thrones AT THE SAME TIME. Miraculously, someone has had the quite brilliant idea of noticing that the only thing better than one fully fitted home theatre is having two big-screen media rooms in the same house. Yes! Yes! Your own multiplex. Chill on, my friend. 

The hidden extras: All the fancy pants appliances and finishings, lots of glass and concrete, wine cellar, mini golf, guest suite
