My father is from Sicily and he was fond of the traditional classical style.”What a view- the ocean from almost every room.The features include black granite kitchen benchtops, Victorian-style tiled floors and glass chandeliers which add true a touch of luxury.The penthouse has columns with gold-leaf style finishes and a winding staircase which leads up to three ensuites bedrooms and two living rooms.The rooftop level, which has 360 views, features an impressive St Peter’s Basilica style dome above the dining table which lets in streams of filtered light.Fancy a bite to eat at this dining room table?
