The resort lifestyle is the essence of the design inspiration for this home. Three stories above the street, the penthouse living level is an open, gracious, and flexible space that flows effortlessly out to two terrace gardens. The west terrace is for entertaining and connects to panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. In contrast, the east terrace is a lush courtyard in which to relax and bar-b-cue and protected from the coastal breeze. An entire floor hosts the luxurious master suite with his and her baths, closets, and offices. The lower level opens to a beautiful surprise - a pool which is tucked away from the street creating a fun and private space for the family to play and that is connected directly to the kids' media room, dance/yoga studio, wine hall and guest suite.     

The design vocabulary of the home has both Moroccan and Bahamian influences and employs a clean and simple materials palette. Carved thick plaster walls are juxtaposed with steel doors and windows, wood elements, and louvered openings making for a unique and sophisticated home that is both effortlessly glamorous and approachable.
