Safety and privacy are the two most important things that people should think when they want to settle in a place. In the family home of Sharon Cuneta in Mandaluyong City, it’s easy to notice how much she values life without the showbiz limelight and away from the public’s eyes.
The Megastar considered herself a homebody. She prefers to spend her time at home spending time with her children, reading books, and watching television whenever she is free from her showbiz engagements. Having a beautiful house that is very homey and relaxing, it’s no wonder why she would choose to stay here than go out.
Instead of using blinds or thick drapes, Sharon decided to use bamboo curtains which adds up to the cozy and homey vibe of the house. On both sides of the big main door are identical tables and cushioned chairs.
At the entrance of the house, the guest will be fascinated by the sunburst-and-cherub sculpture that Sharon brought in Paris. There is a console cabinet in the area and two chairs are placed on each side.
The staircase alone already shouting with class and elegance. It has wrought-iron railings and marble steps which adds up to the classic vibe of the house. The elevator can be found just a few steps from the round table holding the tall vase.
As Sharon loves both music and arts, she decided to build an area in the house where art and music meet. In this area, she has a huge framed music sheets. It can also be seen the mother-and-child painting by painter and priest, Fr. Armand Tangi. The El Dios Pan painting by Juan Luna defines the area. Sharon even went to Madrid to buy this painting for her friend, Claude Tayag.
Sharon personally chose the paintings and artworks displayed in her house. In one corner, there is a painting of hose carriages by Antonio Leano.

Sharon often welcomes her friends and guests in this area. There are light mocha seating pieces, paintings, and table lamps in the area which adds up to the relaxing and inviting vibe of the house.
The door near the television leads back to the foyer. Below the AC units are the sliding door which covers the storage for food. The house is very spacious and big that’s why there are doors and partitions in the house to secure the privacy of every area.

Near the microwave over was a dumbwaiter, a small elevator that is used to deliver food in every area of the house.
