Long corridors double up as storage space with built-in shelves and hidden cabinets while an ergonomic home office is tucked away in the rear.
The foyer and the living room combine a dash of the classic Hollywood Regency look with a mid-century approach while vintage additions like bright neon signs steal the show with ease. Horizontal black and white stripes in the entrance hall vintage framed posters and a giant vase welcome you gleefully.
A front and rear pavilion indoor courtyards and open balconies extend the living area outdoors as the panoramic views outside add to the overall appeal of the house.
