Here at LLNYC we have come to the conclusion that rich people just don’t like sharing.
We were first tipped off by his-and-hers closets, although we deemed that really quite sensible. Then it was the his-and-hers bathrooms, which are frankly more practical than anything.
But then came his-and-hers kitchens — which can come with four islands, three sinks, and two pairs of fridge and freezer columns — and we begun to get suspicious.
Now, with the news of his-and-hers terraces, sitting rooms, swimming pools and even master bedrooms, we feel like we are on solid ground.
The aforementioned sex-segregated swimming pools are located in a £19 million (roughly $24 million) country mansion called Kingsmead. Broker Alex Newall told The Telegraph:
“The Russian owners built a second swimming pool for him as he loves having a really hot banya (Russian sauna), then swimming lengths in the fresh air, whatever the weather. But her view is why would you go swimming outside on a cold day when you can relax in the warmth? So she has her indoor pool, with an exercise bike submerged in it for water aerobics.”
