Big selling point

Aside from being a good investment property, the owner’s suite is completely decked out with vaulted timber ceilings, a gas fireplace and a 442-square-foot rooftop terrace. If the hot tub and infrared sauna aren’t enough, the house is directly across from the beach, so the new owners can easily pop over for a dip in the summertime.

Possible deal-breaker

The owner’s suite only has one bedroom, so guests will have to sleep on the couch.
