Ocean View House

Modeled after the famous Kaufman House in Palm Springs, California, this modern luxury retreat at the other end of the globe is garnering some attention of its own.

This stunning, sprawling combination of indoor and outdoor spaces comes together in a distinctly “California” fashion. The outdoor living spaces are at the same time inviting and intriguing. A large deck boasts covered and open lounging areas, encircling an infinity pool that ends where the breathtaking view begins. The home exterior is dominated by its expansive windows and bold, geometric frame. What appears from a distance as a low profile home is anything but from the inside, featuring double-height ceilings, open-concept layouts and floor-to-ceiling glass that creates a seamless border between indoors and out. Four king-sized bedrooms, five bathrooms, a powder room, five living areas, a chef’s kitchen, cinema, gym, wet bar, steam room, cool room and four-car parking complete the floor plan.
