The sophisticated Moroccan-style Casbah Cove residence in Bighorn Golf Club features an amazing 30-by-40-foot retractable glass ceiling in the center of the house that opens to blue skies and starry nights. Built over four years by craftsmen led by a creative design team, Casbah Cove reflects the layout of a modern riad, with most of the rooms opening onto the central arcade that surrounds an indoor atrium with palms and lush landscaping. Limestone slabs, intricate tile work, and Siberian oak floors complement the carved white plaster accents throughout.
