Three bedrooms along with a bathroom are nestled in this part of the house even as the top level holds the master bedroom terrace and a spacious library.
Much of this is achieved using a beautiful blend of stone and glass on the outside that marries two contrasting elements in a pleasing fashion. Designed by Vanguard Studio this Spanish Oaks home is as much about the outdoors as it is about the interior!
Using a series of pergolas balconies and nifty little niches an array of delightful outdoor spaces was created and they are constantly connected with the lower-level living area. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors play their part as well in this fabulous narrative where the lush green backyard becomes a dynamic backdrop for the neutral living area kitchen and dining room.
On the inside it is timber that still holds sway even as the entire house is divided into three distinct zones – the parents’ retreat the kids’ rooms and the common living area that overlooks the pool and wooden deck. The ambiance inside the house is modern coastal with serenity infused into the overall design of each room using neutral hues and wooden warmth.
Pops of red and lovely lighting give the large living space a bright and open appearance while the kitchen and dining space doubles as a wonderful gathering area for the entire family. Bringing an aesthetic value and construction style from an era lost in time this Spanish home effortlessly bridges the past and the present!
