The basement features a stone-walled wine cellar and a beautifully finished additional room.

The oversized second-floor master bedroom and sitting area has exposed-beam wood ceilings as do the separate his and hers marble bathrooms with walk-in closets. Off the master bedroom is a large balcony with spectacular views of the Andes Mountains and Vilcabamba River. The balcony wraps around the side and back of the house. Also on the second floor are a video room, an office, massage room and gym (with full bath) all with great views, and a wrought-iron lined corridor that looks down on the Great Room.

The Main Residence is surrounded on all four sides by porches. The porches are 10-feet deep on the front and open to a large 30-foot radius half-circle stone-walled patio in front of the house, perfect for outdoor parties, entertaining and dancing. Multiple flower gardens bring splashes of color year round.
