Every space inside the three-level home is blessed with beautiful views of the distant sea and the landscape just outside. An even more breathtaking aspect of the escape is the study that cantilevers above the main house and extends outside in a striking manner.
Clever arrangement of spaces throughout the house also ensures that the flow between one to the next is unhindered. Opening up to the backyard the rear addition invites the outdoors inside with large glass windows which take a metallic bay window form when they transition into the bedrooms and kids’ spaces.
