The overwhelming influence of Japanese design is apparent from the very beginning as one comes across a lovely stone garden and a stylish entrance that reminds us of a typical Japanese garden. An art gallery with sleek minimal design sits on the opposite side of the spacious pool house that offers unabated views of the lake thanks to the extensive use of glass. The interior is covered in teak floors plaster walls and a wood ceiling to give it a peaceful and organic ambiance.
The interior is clad in cool neutral colors with white and grey taking up much of the space. A sleek and stylish living room a contemporary kitchen and an elegant dining room are all combined in an open floor plan. A moat-like water feature that surrounds the house offers a sense of security even while enhancing the dramatic look of the place.
The ambiance of the home is inviting and unassuming creating a sense of serenity the moment you step in. Unlike many other houses the master suite kids’ bedrooms with bunk beds and guest rooms occupy the lower level of the residence while the top two floors hold the public spaces. This was done to ensure that the living areas got the best possible views while the bedrooms combined a smart blend of privacy and openness.
