All these for an unbelievable $21.8 million price tag which makes it (perhaps) the most expensive one-bedroom apartment in the world. So let’s say money aren’t a problem do you think such large single bedroom houses — 4434 sq ft (that’s roughly 412 square meters) — are a disadvantage or are they really good to live in? I reckon the building is monumental and highly appealing.
The couple admits that it had been a lot of work to renovate the whole structure which included even the shaping up of each and every single irregular stone. The home has four floors in total connected through an elevator accessed from an underground garage and wine cellar.
Schnieders is but not satisfied with the small size of the bathroom and the style of the kitchen. He also does not like the ceiling fans. But we feel that the fans are just alright in terms of the traditional accessories the house has been adorned with. Well he is a man who believes that even if a space is very temporary it should feel like our own otherwise we will be miserable. May be that is why he is so cynical about certain aspects of the house. We wish him and his family that their house under renovation would truly be a dream home.
The base shade of the walls and ceilings are off-white which enhances the already existing serene feeling. Arranged beautifully the living area is enticing with the shelves photo frames as well as the book shelf finding the perfect slots. Kitchen is quite big and is adorned with modest decorations.
A cleft between the high roofs and the walls allows for free passage of air and light into all the levels and there is ample natural ventilation. The architecture relies on minimal use of walls and they have been erected only in places where they are necessary with glass extensively and expansively filling up in most other places. From the highway the house appears too short and lying on its backdrop is the large beautiful ocean.
The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature. It is simply awesome to behold and looks like a perfectly cut and polished glass cube from outside with a blue tinge to it. But I really wonder how one could live inside such a building.
Wooden ceilings make the whole area so admirable and so do the brick walls. Metal rods that hold the lighting props which run across on the ceilings are kept exposed. The flooring looks as if it has been made to reflect the ceiling while the pillars sport a rustic look and the multi-paned windows have helped it maintain the elegance.
