“This country home is defined by an eight foot thick Gabion wall, which acts as a spine, from north to south,” the architects explained. “The break in the Gabion becomes the point of entry into a densely planted courtyard that frames a phenomenal view.”
The interiors are bright and spacious with charming rustic elements exuding their warmth. Open showers, high ceilings, terrazzo en-suites and brass lamps add to the overall breezy atmosphere.
“The infinity pool sort of drifts away from the veranda as a reflective mirror plane, pointing to the peak on the opposite shore,” the designers added.
This is a high precipitation area, so a full-length rain collector was installed. The system ensures that water shed by the roof is tamed and redirected away from the veranda. A perfectly manicured lawn surrounds the property and creates a seamless visual connection with the neighboring hills.
