Stepping inside and to the right of the front door is the dining room. A simple white table ties in with the walls and a large window provides a view of the garden.

Just off the dining room is the kitchen, that was opened up to more directly connect it to the adjacent living spaces and a floating island was added. Off the kitchen is a small patio area for casual outdoor dining.

The interior of the home is bright and airy with white walls and contrasting dark wood floors. To the right of the living room is a sitting area with doors that open to the backyard.

In the backyard there’s a swimming pool and at one end, 2 sculptural chairs sit underneath a small pergola. Gravel surrounds the pool and a dark wood fence provides privacy.

Also located on the main floor of the house is a bedroom. Large windows allow natural light to fill the room and at the same time provide a view of the backyard.

A staircase leads up to the second floor of the home, while skylights and windows continue the bright and airy feeling upstairs.
