A smart home typically refers to a structure that touts intelligent elements designed to make life easier, but in our opinion, no feature is smarter than a built-in coffee maker. This stunning, nearly 4,000-square-foot home in Westlake, which just hit the market today, offers caffeine on-call and myriad other impressive add-ons worthy of a resort.

Listed with Jill Fugger at Ebby Halliday for $2,450,000, 1712 Post Oak Pl. is a spacious Mediterranean residence inside and a lush, tropical paradise outside. Multiple entertainment and cooking areas dot the backyard, all equipped with high-grade appliances and electronics and plenty of plush seating. An infinity edge pool, waterfalls, fire pits and exotic tableaux — think Moroccan hanging lanterns and breezy white tapestries — make the outdoors a luxurious oasis.

The front exterior is just as inspiring, with stately landscaping and dramatic lighting that emphasizes the home's grandeur. Beyond the towering front doors are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, multiple living areas and three fireplaces. There's even a screening room, set up with oversize daybeds and cushions for lounging.

The kitchen is in line with the house's open and livable layout, boasting custom cabinets and a built-in wine cooler.

Much like the enviable backyard, the bathrooms make great use of stacked stone, giving the home a natural yet sophisticated touch. It's the custom closets, however, that might truly take your breath away.
