This beachfront beauty by Vertice Arquitectos is like a treasure buried in the sand, just waiting to be discovered! And this local architecture firm certainly has a knack for designing cool coastal houses that give the sparkling waves a run for their money!
Located near Lima, Peru, this contemporary house sits on a sleep slope overlooking the sea and sandy shoreline of Palillos beach. To make the most of these breathtaking waterfront panoramas, the home takes shape in multiple levels, incorporating both indoor and outdoor living areas that artfully extend the home's square footage well beyond its walls. While solid wall facades flank either side of the house, for purposes of privacy, sea-side it's all glass, presenting a prime vantage point to take in the million-dollar view.
The main entrance leads you into the upper level of the house, overlooking the two-storey central living space below.
A free-flowing, open-concept layout embraces the outdoors and every drop of sunlight seeping in through the large floor-to-ceiling window wall. We love that the home's five bedrooms also offer a little piece of paradise, each with its own private balcony - totally dreamy!
Just outside, a swimming pool puts the cool aqua blue hue within easy reach, and with the oceanfront mere steps away, this home is a water-lover's paradise! Vertice Arquitectos
