Chao Residence

  • For many years, it was assumed that the house wasn’t built, but it’s recently discovered to have already been built.

  • It is a 15,000 sq. ft single-family residence, placed on a sloping landscape. It has a loggia which connects the two main living spaces of the house.

  • The large screens have been removed. And it was rented to the Government of Ireland as an Ambassador's residence as of 2011.
