A modern, self-sufficient, lock-up-and-go home, and an entertainer’s dream. This property is also low-maintenance and has luscious tropical gardens that surround the pool. But apart from these features, it is off the grid, ensuring that the family can live life to the fullest knowing that they are not harming the environment.
