A Luxurious Stone House on a Rocky Cliff in Baja, Mexico
Like a warming spot in a cliffside cave lookout, the living room of Casa Finisterra in Cabo San Lucas has a primal quality.
The glass and stone house, from New York city-based studio Steven Harris Architects, clings to a rocky coast in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Some rooms of the coastal “cave” house are completely open to the private sun on the steep cliff.
The house is sophisticated and sleek, by contrast with its primitive setting.
The only sound, the unceasing swing of the surf on the beach far below.
The luxuriously sun-blessed house has seven bathrooms for its five bedrooms.
Some provide a peak at the ancient rock formations of the beach below.
In the balmy climate, an outdoor living room gets use both day and night.
Giant boulders are the only landscaping in the arid coastal climate.
These gigantic boulders are incorporated right into the stone and glass dwelling.
The infinite blues and greens of the gorgeous Baja coast provide the landscaping.
The rambling 9,000 square foot cliffside dwelling is part of a gated Mexican resort-community.
Almost entirely glass and stone, it’s built to survive the centuries.
