Even its exterior presents a unique picture with three different structures clad in natural-edge weatherboards batten timber cladding and cool mud brick.
The idea here was to not just fashion a home that connects with the panoramic scenery but also to incorporate design flexibility and adaptability that lets it grow along with the needs of the homeowners.
But what really draws your attention at this modern-rustic home is the wonderful use of old brick warm wooden surfaces and smart bespoke lighting to create a refined and cozy fusion of contrasting styles.
The secluded pool deck multiple terraces and additional balconies enhance the quality of life here as it is the greenery and fresh ocean breeze outside that truly make this home special.
A healthy dose of greenery on the lower level creates a fabulous fusion between the interior and the poolscape and backyard beyond the sliding glass doors. The two lower levels of the home contain the public spaces and guest room while the top floor house the master suite and additional bedrooms.
