ESP - Ubicada en el Club de Golf San Gaspar en Jiutepec de Morelos, en un terreno de 1,600 metros cuadrados en lo alto de un cerro; Widescreen se materializa en una sola planta para albergar un programa versátil. Hoy es una casa de descanso, pero mañana se convertirá en una residencia donde el cliente disfrutará de su retiro.
