3. Mansion Monday: Your own trading floor. I've covered luxury real estate for 15 years and in that time, I've seen just about every possible amenity. Giant movie theaters, dog spas, humidors, giant aquariums, infinity pool, — been there, done that. Today's property has all of that plus something I haven't seen before: a trading floor. The home of Neil Schneider, a trading-obsessed retired nephrologist has a financial center with a trading computer, 10 monitors and an LED news ticker built into the wall. The NY Post reports that the wood-paneled room is served by two internet providers so that if one goes down the second one kicks in.
The six-bedroom home was custom built by Schneider and has Intracoastal waterway frontage. The home has custom woodwork, hand-painted detailing and wrought-iron staircases. The outdoor architecture has a loggia overlooking an infinity-edge pool. The Schneiders are also throwing in one more amenity, a stretch limousine with a satellite television and most of the furnishings. It is listed for $12.99 million. — NY POST
