Built 250 feet above the ocean on the Baja Peninsula, Casa Finnestra, the 7,500 square foot five bedroom, seven bathroom palace designed by Steven Harris, has hit the market in this tropical locale at $10 million.

The home, located in sunny Cabo San Lucas, offers sweeping views at 180 degrees, and is designed to optimize sunlight and open air freshness year-round. The balance between architecture and nature is everywhere in the home with structures along the perimeter of the courtyard designed by Margie Ruddick.

Natural light guides movement throughout the house with inviting interiors designed by Lucien Rees-Roberts. Hidden skylights, walls of glass rods, slender clerestories and floor level windows paired with reflecting pools that play with sunlight during the day also let interior light escape to illuminate the exterior at night.The home harkens back to the chic, California and Mexican coastal homes depicted in David Hockney paintings, brought to high luxury levels with sleek design and tons of light flooding in.

The guest suites, each with its own recreation area, make up the lower levels of each wing. The study, separated from one guest suite by a sandblasted glass shower, overlooks the 50-foot pool that cantilevers out across the cliff toward the blue horizon. Framed by walls of stone and concrete, the pool feels almost completely private from the other parts of the house. The home is being listed by The Agency.
