Chapter 59: Luxury

Translator:  Editor:

The luxury car stopped in front of the community as the driver rolled the window down to scan the identification card before the bar slowly lifted up . Peering through the window, Jiang Chen noticed that all of the security staff were muscular and fit, equipped with electric rods . Although he didn’t know the specifics of their ability, from the way they stood, he guessed that they must be retired soldiers .


His suspicions were correct; the fifty security guards within the community were all elite soldiers who retired without any infractions . The property management’s high reputation was certainly justified .


Since the community’s opening six years ago, many thieves set their eyes upon the property, but none were successful . The security team’s scouting skills had been honed in the army . If thieves managed to bypass them on their watch, then they might as well reconsider their career as a special agent .


The luxury car drove smoothly into the wide driveway in the deepest part of the community which was shaped like a flipped bowl on top of a large, artificially-created hill . Jiang Chen’s mansion was at the highest point of the bowl, overlooking the beautiful river scenery .


“The people living here are either rich or respective . This way, not only will you get to enjoy the complex, but you’ll also meet a lot of interesting neighbors . ”


Xiao Mengying was hinting that staying here would be beneficial for his career .


However, Jiang Chen didn’t seem to receive her intentions as he flashed a smile at her carelessly . Career was one thing, but the living standard was more important . Without it, what was the point of having a high net worth?


Since he purchased the mansion for his own enjoyment, the first priority was comfort . As for the rich and respectable neighbors? He had a feeling that they would come knocking soon enough .


The car came to a smooth stop in front of the mansion door as Xiao Mengying quickly got out and opened the door for Jiang Chen . She scanned her card on the door, making the metal gate automatically slide open .


“Once registration is complete, the mansion’s security system will update . You can even use the app our company developed to open the door . Of course, I recommend the special electronic key . ” Xiao Mengying smartly batted her eyelashes at him as she led the way into the mansion .


Behind the European-themed wall was another world .


The clean-cut grass field, straight stone-brick pathway, and the building that was a fusion between classical European and modern simplicity came together flawlessly without any contradiction to the two unique themes . The open French windows adorned the first floor of the mansion, completed by white, square blocks around the rest of the building . Elegant but open, the four-story building stood out among the other three-story mansions .


Jiang Chen was most satisfied with the oval-shaped swimming pool . Just as the document stated, with a press of a button, the dome retracted to the side, revealing an open swimming pool . The temperature of the pool could also be accurately increased to a specific range thanks to the heating equipment underneath the pool . Although these innovative designs were rather impractical, it fueled someone like Jiang Chen who thrived on the “coolness . ”


Xiao Mengying explained the high-end features within the mansion and led him inside .


The interior design pleased him even further .


Sample rooms were furnished for the sake of advertisement, and the company offered the option of refurbishing if the homebuyer was unhappy with the design .


But Jiang Chen was plenty satisfied with the decorations . The monochromatic living room was comforting, and the artistic furniture further enhanced the lively feel . The building itself had been built to perfection by a world-renowned architect . Even without knowing why it felt so right, Jiang Chen felt at peace here .


The dining room and kitchen were masterfully designed as well .

Xiao Mengying led him up the stairs to the second floor which had been designed purely for comfort .


The floor was mostly made up of bedrooms, but what shocked Jiang Chen was that every room was designed slightly differently . The intent was to allow the homebuyer to freely select a room based on their mood . One of the rooms was monochromatic with an emphasis on simplicity, while another was decorated with warm-tones to create an intimate atmosphere .


The third and fourth-floor flowed smoothly with the rest of the building’s design . Each floor had washrooms and two extra bedrooms . There were also some empty rooms that could be converted into whatever the homebuyer wished, such as an office or a gym .


He stood on the top floor balcony and gazed out at the beautiful scenery in the light river breeze . Although it was still the middle of summer, the wind was slightly cool which could perhaps be attributed to the vegetation around the area; it was vastly different from the heat in the center of Wanghai City .


“Not bad . This is a great place to live . ” Jiang Chen nodded at Xiao Mengying with a satisfied expression .


The green vegetation, elegant environment, luxury, and comfortable design were more than worth the price .


It was certainly more “modern” than the mansion in the apocalypse world that had been designed with a retro feel—it was the perfect environment for enjoying life .


And all for only two hundred million RMB .


Maybe because money came too easily for him, it was an obvious choice for Jiang Chen .


“Although our company cannot provide a discount on these types of mansions, based on the agreement we signed with Maybach, we’ll provide a brand new Maybach S600 for any home with a pricetag of one hundred million or above . This is a limited edition vehicle,” Xiao Mengying explained .


Jiang Chen had heard about the Maybach S600 before . The price overseas was around half a million USD, which was around three million RMB . Of course, people who owned one hundred million mansions would not lack this small amount of money, but it was a good gesture, and a gift seemed more natural rather than giving a discount as part of a sales strategy .
