                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About the owner: I work in the magazine and documentary film business based in Los Angeles, New York and Rio. I grew up in California, where the only thing I knew about Brazil was that I loved Sergio Mendez and Brazil '66!! I really discovered Brazil first hand 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 4 months a year in Brazil. I bought this very special duplex penthouse 5 years ago. It's a bit of paradise just 2 blocks from the beach.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
                                  After renting for many years, I bought this penthouse in 2005. It was a beautiful, and historic property and in an ideal location. It is convenient to everything. 2 blocks to the beach, 1 to the subway. The neighborhood is completely safe and full of supermarkets, cafes, banks, etc.
