The interior is kept simple and minimal with white dominating the landscape.
Stackable glass doors help in separating the various zones within the home while allowing natural light to flow through. The contemporary kitchen is the showstopper of the house with its stunning island and sleek ergonomic design. The decor is kept modern and neutral with bold colors barely making their presence felt.

The line between the two is instantly blurred as you would find yourself spending more time around the outdoor fireplace while the star-studded sky takes over each evening!
