Six years ago, Hernan was fed up with where he was living. "It had many rooms but each of them was very small. I needed fewer rooms and more space," he explains. He also yearned for more outdoor access. But after losing out on a nice flat with a big terrace in an exhaustive bidding war that lasted for months, he came across the home he lives in now. It didn't have a big terrace, but the top-floor flat overlooks a beautiful, lush sea of trees. And the gorgeous upgrades he's made to the flat's interior rivals even the views!
