The house was designed in accordance with Feng Shui principles, with the shape, position, orientation of all the spaces and bodies of water all reflecting this.

Stepping inside the front door, you enter into the lower floor of the house, where there’s a double garage, storage area and a staff area. There’s also a set of stairs with hidden lighting and a lift that lead up to the main floor of the house.

Interior design firm Ann Alderton Bespoke, completed the interior design of the home that includes a luxurious and sophisticated interior with a touch of glamour, but also serving the needs of a growing family.

Just of the lounge, there’s a rim flow swimming pool with a natural stone waterfall feature and a sundeck. By placing these elements at the side of the house, they are shielded from the winds coming off the ocean.

Around the corner and looking at another side of the house, you can easily see the roof forms with large eaves, an overhanging upper storey, and at night, light is used to highlight the design.

On this side of the house, there’s panoramic sea views from the north east through to the south east, and an outdoor lounge area and shallow reflective pool provide a calming place to relax.
