Moreover, the property itself is unique, regardless of whether it’s used as a permanent home, a lock and leave or a part time luxurious rental / Air BNB which can easily pay for itself at that level. It is certainly a ‘One of One’ in a class of distinctive and premium assets within that destination market," stated the Icon Global Group’s founder Bernard Uechtritz.
