Architecture Wednesday: Casa Finisterra

Casa Finisterra; literally, the house at the end of the world.
This 9,000 square foot, five bedroom, seven bath--a bathroom for every day of the week--contemporary home sits upon a breathtaking promontory in the exclusive gated resort-community of Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
It is an internationally renowned private residence designed by Steven Harris Architects and decorated by Rees Roberts. It's also kind of a fantasy home if we’ve ever seen one. 
Upon entering the site, the central courtyard leads to both public and private enclosed spaces on the main level; the lower levels are tucked in below. The 80-foot long pool sits on an outcrop in the cliff between the house and ocean, collapsing the space between its waters and the Pacific down below. Stone patios, glass walls, and balconies overlook the sea, while gorgeous minimalist furnishings complement the view. It's on the cliff, and it's in the cliffs. Most rooms have fabulous sea views, with floor to ceiling glass, and many rooms have at least one wall that is cliff rock.
Minimalist. Simple. Elegant. Ready for Margaritas. And, as always, click to emBIGGERate,
