A spa-like bath connects the two rooms and offers a two-person Jacuzzi, sit down shower, double sinks with marble counters, and dressing area. The top two floors offer four more bedrooms each with en-suite marble baths, and Brazilian cherry floors. A large full-width terrace is off the third floor rear bedroom.
