A stunning spiral staircase adds to the sculptural appeal of the decor even as a lovely living area kitchen entertainment hub and dining room complete the lower level of the residence.
Step inside and one sees the addition of quirky patterns colorful shelves and dynamic wallpaper which give the home a cheerful inimitable style of its own!

A giant concrete wall with painted scenery anchors the central staircase that connects the various levels of the house and adds an interesting and unique visual. With mezzanine levels becoming popular additions in 2014 it is barely surprising to see the lovely mezzanine floor with a cozy reading nook in the corner.
