This large, four-bedroom courtyard house is truly designed to accommodate the lifestyle of either a holidaying or a resident family, with a master suite and three generous bedrooms, all with private verandas with screened outdoor showers and shading pergolas.
The double-storey entrance, which closes off the private internal courtyard with its plunge pool, houses the double garages and a large first-floor studio. Continuing from the foyer, one passes into the open dining room and informal lounge/TV room.
Sliding doors spanning the full width either side of the dining room serve to open up the internal courtyard, through the building and to the space outside. The informal lounge opens onto a very generous barbeque area with a shading pergola.
The centrally-positioned family lounge, with similarly wide sliding doors on three of its sides, shares this barbeque area while also opening up the courtyard to the bush and strengthening the visual axis from the pool, through the courtyard and the house, to the mountains in the distance. The separated kitchen adjacent to the dining room opens onto a small yard providing access to the staff quarters.
