The rooms are oriented to the views of Mount Harmon and the surrounding villages. The house consists of large living room, family room, dining and kitchen, two separate master bedrooms, three visitors’ rooms, a driver’s apartment, a custodian apartment and two carports. A lookout tower above the visitor’s area for night viewing and star watching.
The Houses Material is a combination of: “ Eclatee” local limestone, Cedar Pergolas, zinc and red tile roof, cedar wood double glazed windows, with indigenous soft landscaping. This gives the house a familiar stature and friendly contextual setting.
