This generously proportioned double storey house features a more formal approach and entrance. A sweeping staircase in the double volume lobby leads up to an open study area and three of the four bedrooms; two of them complete with viewing balconies. The fourth bedroom on the ground floor is perfect for guests. Exiting the lobby via double doors, one enters the double volume lounge with its gumpole-raftered, steeply pitched, exposed thatch roof. Wide sliding doors in the flanking walls, together with the cruciform plan of the roof structure created by the matching dormer windows above, emphasise the visual cross axis beginning at the courtyard swimming pool, passing through the lounge and covered porch to the spectacle of the mountains beyond. The gallery walkway linking the bedroom wings has been positioned above the sliding doors flanking the courtyard in order to further emphasize this direction of flow. Double doors either side of the fireplace on the far wall lead to the separated dining room and kitchen, with the staff cottage accessed across an enclosed kitchen yard.
