The main level living area flows to the outdoor living area, without one step or change in elevation. Engineered marble slabs measuring 5 x 10 feet are Italian-imported and create exquisitely seamless floors throughout. With years of dedicated experience facilitating the production and selection of customized materials for clients, Shelly and Avi have traveled to far corners of the world to bring rare, stunning, and oftentimes unexpected elements to this property. Nothing in the home exists for a singular purpose, but rather to evoke an emotional and lasting connection. Guests are sure to stop in their tracks when they experience the living room powder with its angled mirror and floating sink design. The metallic black pearl wallpaper lining the master bathroom creates a mesmerizing, kaleidoscope effect, while the 150 feet of custom floating planters outside present privacy in a captivating way.
The front or east block has the public functions such as the entry lobby, drawing room, dinning, and bar all of which face the large front lawn as well as the relatively intimate courtyard. The rear block has a large double height family living room which opens out to the courtyard and the pool deck and two bedrooms facing the rear lawn. The upper level has four bedroom, puja room, and a lounge area for the family to gather. The gym and sauna pavilion sits just across the swimming pool, along the Northern face of the property, and squares-off the sense of enclosure around the courtyard.
Generous overhangs, external sliding shutters and perforated steel and aluminium eaves assist with naturally shading the facades. All doors and windows have performance glazing and are mostly full height which, together with the careful arrangement of internal spaces, ensured that the magnificent views are optimised for all rooms.
