Terrace Boasts Patio & Pool

Yes, it's true -- the property includes a terrace with a swimming pool! Because it's built right into the cliff, the water feature almost seems to blend into the horizon.

Sofas Establish Symmetry and Balance

Penthouse Boasts Open Floor Plan

On the other side of the sofas, a long table with several barstools creates a formal dining space. The dark wood of this vignette perfectly complements the accent wall, which becomes a focal point for the open layout.

Family Room & Other Features

Just a few steps from the living room, a large sectional and fireplace create a comfortable space to unwind after a long day. In addition to the balcony, sitting area and dining space, the penthouse also features four bedrooms and four baths.

Master Suite With Spa Bathroom

To make the master suite feel open and airy, the architects eschewed a traditional wall in favor of twin columns. On the other side, a large soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower create a spa-like bathroom.
