This stunning residence blends the elegance of a chic urban retreat with the all-natural feel and openness of an idyllic getaway.

Spanning 310 sq. m (3,335 sq. ft), the house is arranged across three floors, featuring two living areas, a large dining room, a professional kitchen, and 8 bedrooms.

Custom-designed furniture pieces, handmade craft-led items, and specially commissioned pieces such as rope wall art further add a bespoke touch to the property.
