    The Future is Here: Melbourne Home with Facial Recognition Door Sells for Under $950,000

    A state-of-the-art home in Melbourne, known as the “home of the future,” has been purchased by a young couple. Located at 2/210 Nell Street in the suburb of Greensborough, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom townhouse boasts a plethora of modern features.

    One of the most impressive aspects of this property is its fully-electric setup, which means there are no gas connections. This not only reduces the home’s carbon footprint but also leads to more affordable utility bills. Additionally, the listing highlights the presence of a cutting-edge “facial recognition door.”

    According to Agent Kenneth Kong of Ray White Burwood, the facial recognition door operates using a sophisticated 3D image system that only recognizes family members. Once family members sign up and provide their 3D images, they can use the door’s unlocking feature. This innovative security measure adds a sense of convenience and safety to the home.

    The townhouse is designed with a calming grey and timber palette, creating a modern and sophisticated interior aesthetic. The presence of floorboards, statement pendant lights, Moorish tilework in the kitchen, and timber-frame windows adds a touch of elegance to the overall design.

    The property spans two levels, with the ground floor featuring a double garage, shed, living and dining areas, kitchen, butler’s pantry, and laundry. On the upper level, you can find the bedrooms, bathrooms, and a study nook. The inclusion of a private paved backyard offers a space for outdoor entertainment.

    Situated in the family-friendly suburb of Greensborough, which is just 17km north-east of Melbourne’s Central Business District, this home is conveniently located near shops, cafes, and schools. With a median house price of $945,000 according to Domain’s House Price Report for the June 2023 quarter, the townhouse offers a modern and stylish living solution at an affordable price.

    Innovative features like a fully-electric setup and a facial recognition door make this recently sold home a glimpse into the future of residential living.
