                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: I work in the magazine and documentary film business based in Los Angeles, New York and Rio. 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 4 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.

                              Why the Owner Chose Rio de Janeiro:
                              I bought this apartment because it was right in the middle of my favorite neighborhood, 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.
