Let’s first explore the luxury that abounds within. Shall we?

The Interior

The expansive open floor plan and vaulted ceilings are fascinating. Elements such as the rich wood flooring, vintage-style furnishings, and well-organized shelving are quickly noticeable to the eye, thanks to the area’s uncluttered design.

You don’t need to invest in expensive pieces of artwork for your living room. Books carefully arranged on floating shelves also do a perfect job.

From the second floor, you can have a clear view of what is happening in the lower floor. Large lighting pendants come in handy in the absence of natural light.

Your eyes can’t miss the charming parallel panelling on the ceiling. There’s more greenery on the upper floor teamed with sleek wood flooring.
