This private residential home was transformed from a somewhat unimaginative pile into a vibrant living space by the masterly hand of an accomplished architect. It is not often that a property, discreetly tucked away in a cul-de-sac, blends so seamlessly not only with its rural environment (the mountains, forests and vineyards), as well as with the neighboring establishments.
The cutting edge architecture, a subtle blend of urban and industrial architecture, is a field that has also evolved to combine functionality and design of which the interior of this property offers numerous examples. Traditionally the main room is the hardest working room in the house, as its entire purpose is to serve multiple key functions all in one shared space. The goal with this property was to make everyday living just a little easier, and to make a communal space more enticing. Never has open area living been more attractive as with this property (the newly installed staircase, gas fire and the blending of textures). The floors are of solid oak wood in the living area and blend perfectly with the stucco floor finishes of the kitchen. The energy efficient electrical fittings include downlights, pendant lights and classic chandeliers. White painted architraves, door linings and skirtings where applicable.
The four bedrooms in the main house are airy and spacious. The en suite bathroom includes a white double ended bath and two white rectangular porcelain wash basins. The walls of the second bathroom (shower only)are clad from floor to ceiling with plain white porcelain tiles.
Admission to the property is through a wooden pivot door fitted to a stone clad wall. The front door of the property, a double pivot aluminum door with fixed corner panels, is linked to the street entrance by a timber pergola, supported by steel beams.
The entertainment area centers around a pool, and includes a stainless steel barbecue unit as well as a gas cooker.
The two self-contained flatlets which are annexed to the main house are ideally suited to either be utilized as a business office unit, or as permanent online classrooms for the school going members of the family. Parking for visitors is available.
