The living room and dining room share this large and open room that’s been split up into sections with the use of furniture and a fireplace. At one end of the room is a TV area with a small sofa, next you have the main living room with a fireplace hanging from the ceiling, and last, is the dining area with a table large enough to ten people.

Behind the dining table is a wood wall that slides open to reveal the kitchen and extends the living area of the home. Patterned tiles help to define the kitchen, while a black countertop contrasts the rich wood cabinets.

Next to the swimming pool is another entertaining area, this time it’s been set up with a pool table, bar area and a lounge. This space also provides access to the kitchen and living areas, as well as the stairs that lead to the upper floor of the home.

As mentioned earlier, the internal garden is positioned in the middle of the home, creating a centerpiece that the house wraps around. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a view of the garden, while at the same time allowing light to flow through to the interior of the home.

The bedrooms are located on the top floor of the home, and they have a neutral color palette to allow the mountain views to be the focus of the room.

Unexpectedly, the bathroom that’s also on this floor has a private garden that creates an almost tropical feeling.
