House Rules

Absolutely no candles ...woody house.
No parties, but dinner parties are fine.
Prefer no shoes once in the house.
No high heels as can damage floor boards.
Responsible caring guests who will respect the house, as there was a great deal of "love input" into the design and building of this penthouse.
It is a very special property, one of a kind.
The owner travels a great deal and is absent for a minimum of a month and usually stays away for no more than 2 months, but the trips can vary.
Will advise.
