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
