                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: I work in the magazine & film business based in New York City & Los Angeles. I discovered Brazil in 2000, and began traveling often to get to know the country and people better. With lots of flexibility in my work, I spend more than 3 months a year in Brazil. I bought this very special duplex penthouse 5 years ago. It's a bit a paradise just 2 blocks from the beach. I have just finished buying and renovating a 4 bedroom luxury penthouse next door. It can be rented separately or together for a total of 7 bedrooms.

                          Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
                          I bought this apartment because it was right in the middle of my favorite location, Copacabana. Copacabana is the original beach city of Rio. And has all the charm and life of a vital city. It's also so much more convenient to reach the downtown or other locations such as Ipanema.
