A striking façade that’s hard to miss
Surrounded by the pristinely landscaped neighborhood, the home stands out with it’s brutalist-inspired industrial façade. It looks far from your typical modern architecture with a structure that’s almost reminiscent of ancient moated cities or temples in East Asia. It has a unique walkway from the sidewalk to the front door which let’s you appreciate the front sloping garden before entering the house.
Despite the home’s industrial architecture and style, it blends well with the lush surroundings. An abundance of unfiltered, natural light brightens the entire home and balances all the dark tones inside. The raw cement and wood finishes compliments the greenery that can be clearly seen from indoors.
Even if you’re staying indoors, the house itself provides a satisfying view. The raw finish of cement and wood in contrast to the steel accents of the frames and railings, provide a spectacle for the eyes. Just walking up the flights of stairs can be delightful. Speaking of stairs, the layout of the staircases provide an unique visual treat from the second floor landing.
Instant views of the coast from the front door
As you walk through the front door, you will be instantly struck by this home’s prime feature. A clear glimpse of the ocean views and beautiful Zamabalez mountain range can be seen through the vast, floor-to-ceiling windows. You can either bask in the views from the indoor living room or take it all in from the balcony. The view alone will keep you from leaving.
The home boasts spacious outdoor areas on all floors of the home. Each upper floor features generous balconies that allows residents to bask in the magnificent views. On the ground floor, an outdoor dining area with a view of the sloping backyard and coast can also be enjoyed. Imagine entertaining guests in this chill, spacious, and scenic space.
Cook and dine with views of nature
On the basement floor, you will find the spacious kitchen and dining room. With ample storage and counter space, you can keep everything you would normally need if you were in the city. You can even store enough to stay in the property for weeks. Keeping up with the theme of the entire house, the ground/basement floor also flaunts big windows so you can take in all the nature while you prepare and enjoy your meals.
Kitchen and utility access from the driveway
The house’s driveway leads up to a 3-car port that provides quick and easy access to the utility space and kitchen. Supplies from the city or town proper won’t be difficult to take in and store inside the house. The utility space is also big enough to house smaller vehicles such as a golf cart or motorcycle. It can also be used to place washers and dryers if need be.
A dedicated staff room can be accessed through the sloping garden and outdoor dining area. This provides privacy for the homeowners and for the staff as well. From their quarters, staff can also enjoy the beautiful views as they time in and out for the day.
Common bathroom with ample space

It also features a smaller private balcony that towers over the lush greenery below.
From the master bedroom, you can make your way to the second bedroom through a sliding door within the room. Originally, this second room was made to be a bedroom but this can also be converted into a walk-in closet or storage space if needed.
The triangular structure of the home and roof give the bedrooms a unique shape. They similarly have an attic-style feel to them that provides solitude and coziness to whoever resides in them. From the outside, this gives the house an interesting look.
The top bedroom is a private sanctuary—just check out that bathroom
Even if it isn’t the primary bedroom in the house, the bedroom on the top floor is quite desirable. You have direct access to the top floor balcony which boasts the highest and best views of the ocean. Given the same unique structure, it feels like you’re living in a luxury tree house with views of nature all around. Not to mention, it has its own en suite bathroom.
The top-floor en suite bathroom hides a surprise. Upon entering, you will be greeted by a flood of natural light from the massive skylight above. You can wash up to bright and sunny view of the sky.
