Talo Verde Executive Residence

Tumon Bay, GU

Total SF :

This executive home was featured in The Wall Street Journal’s “Home of the Day.”

This 8,200 SF executive home was designed for a long narrow lot overlooking Tumon Bay. The home includes multiple guest suites, a music room, library, billiards room, spa, wine cellar, cigar bar, exercise room, and a large three car garage. The greatest challenge was to fit these required spaces within the setbacks and view corridors as called out by the subdivision design covenants while still allowing for a strong connection with the outdoors. RIM took a split level design approach which makes for a dramatic connection of spaces, and allows one to experience tropical gardens and ocean views from every part of the house. The multiple levels allow for a 2,100 SF daylighted basement, a design feature not typically found in Guam. The backyard has a large negative edge swimming pool with a whirlpool and dramatic water feature walls plus covered lanais, an outdoor kitchen and entertainment areas.
