This property features an open plan main residence, one guest house and one artist studio, each artfully designed with considerations made for the family’s active lifestyle, art collection and

Complemented by exceptional sweeping views, the property offers ample outdoor space to lounge in and explore – the pool is surrounded by an Ipe deck for relaxing. The residence also featured a secret, a rustic outdoor living room graced by a canopy of Eucalyptus trees, solar lighting and farm table for large gatherings.

The residence offers an innovative interpretation of midcentury design and modern touches, skillfully balancing interior and exterior spaces with deft touches of color and statement pieces. There is a distinct flow to the environment of the home, starting from the moment you enter. Each room is evidently crafted to reflect the owners’ unique personality and sense of style, with delightful tokens of sculpture, art and texture.
