The Living Space

This glorious, be-spoke house features 15,000 square feet of living space artfully designed by Cara Builders under the guidance and certification of renowned Feng-Shui Master Max Liang.
The majestic two-story entry foyer is a breathtaking introduction to this glamourous home. From the hand-made 10k Gold Leaf groin and ribbed ceiling, to the Venetian plaster walls, to the Italian porcelain flooring with brass inlays, to the expansive curved staircase with custom wrought iron railings and solid brass handrails, this grand entrance enchants in an unforgettable fashion. The magnificence continues throughout the 14 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 8 baths and 2 half baths with a symphony of details that blend to form a true work of art both in architecture and design.

Beyond the entrance is a spectacular open-floor plan, formal living room and dining room. The eye is immediately drawn to the staggering water views beautifully displayed through seven arched French Doors leading to an expansive covered terrace. The living room features two custom-designed sliding panels on the Venetian plaster walls that open to reveal a hidden mirrored television. The banquet-sized dining room is separated from the kitchen by a two-sided linear glass fireplace clad in Travertine slabs. This is all tied together by a custom-designed recessed ceiling with beam accents.
