Fit for a king! Ballet legend Mikhail Baryshnikov and his wife show off their lavish home in the Dom
De la Renta and Iglesias were the first two people to build homes in the area, and designer explained to Baryshnikov that there was going to be a residential community called Corales built inside the Puntacana Resort & Club.
They promised him there would be 'very few people' in the area before offering him a piece of land for a 'very good price.'
Baryshnikov accepted their generous offer, and de la Renta suggested he meet with Ernesto Buch, the architect who had designed his home.
When Baryshnikov and Rinehart sat down with him, the architect said he wanted to do 'something theatrical' with 'squares, arches, colonnades, and a touch of Spanish.'
It took two years to construct the spacious home, which was built into a land slope on two levels.
