Running alongside the water feature is an open hallway that allows for the sun to shine through during the day, and at night, it can be lit up for a more dramatic entrance.

Here’s a look at one of the bedrooms that sits beside the pool. A simple wood light fixture adorns the wall, and a sliding glass door allows natural light and the breeze to enter the room.

For the children of the house, there’s a special area just for them, a cantilevered room that features a wood box within a glass box. This cantilevered space has large floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the garden.

In other areas of the house, it is apparent that the owners like horses, with two art pieces gracing the home, a colorful standalone horse and a wire outline of a horse on the wall above a plunge pool.
