The four bedrooms and spa-like bathrooms judiciously combine panoramic views with adequate privacy while the exclusive water features outside become a natural extension of the interior. An infinity swimming pool and an unassuming wooden deck that promises idyllic evenings and magical nights under the stars complete this posh home with a relaxed ambiance.
The interior of the house showcases a wonderful balance between glass concrete and wood to ensure that there is ample textural contrast. While the expansive use of wood in light tones gives the home an inviting and cozy vibe extensive floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows ensure that the living area extends into the long balcony outside.
Surrounding the house is a dense oak forest and the designer took complete advantage of the views outside as they form wonderful framed backdrops in the kitchen the dining room and the bedroom. An open-plan living area with a comfy sectional a corner fireplace and unassuming decor is visually connected with the garden outside. The master suite boys’ bedroom with twin beds and a stylish girl’s bedroom are housed on the top level.
The ‘view’ is the most important aspect of the house and shaped its contours as architects from Gavin Maddock Design Studio ensured that every room of the home enjoys unabated access to the sight of the sand and the surf that is just a stone’s throw away.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms elegantly distributed over two stacked boxes perched on the rocky cliff. The open-plan kitchen and the living area have floor-to-ceiling windows to make sure you don’t miss the beauty of the scenery – the stunning lake and the surrounding mountains. But everything changes when you walk outside on the expansive roof decks and recharge your battery from this terrifically laid-back escape from the pressures of the real world.
The top floor contains the master bedroom and luxurious bathroom along with an expansive walk-in closet. Embracing a neutral color scheme all three levels seem like a natural extension of one another even as pops of bright color are kept to a bare minimum.
