With a reflection pond that leaves you spellbound a watery forecourt that is connected by a vivacious spiral staircase encased in a glass cylinder and an infinity pool with a patio to offer lovely view of the sea the entire villa is as fluid as it is solid! The floor-to-ceiling glass windows and the open design ensure that every moment you spend here is both luxurious and memorable.
The most apparent aspect of the estate is the extensive and at times extravagant use of glass which gives the home not just a very transparent look but also helps it bring in the many sights and sounds of the rocky Mediterranean coastline that surround it. With the interiors and the furnishings strictly adhering to a cool white template the house depends on the beautiful natural cove area to give it its unique character and a dash of color and freshness.
Overlooking the port Philip Bay area the home designed by Maddison Architects is an amalgamation of two distinct structures into one. The idea is to bring together a south and a north facing facade with simple and elegant design. While this gives the house a unique look it also helps in terms of energy management and ventilation a great deal.
The stylish luxury villa is located in Alto-Alentejo Portugal and sitting on top of a hill and overlooking extensive olive groves it does offer a panoramic view to sore eyes bored with the concrete jungles of modern cities.
The lower floor contains the kids’ bedrooms the guestrooms and other facilities like the gymnasium and the home theater which are beautifully integrated with the rest of the house. The central attraction of the residence though is the serene and minimalist pond of Buddhist inspiration that should put any worries to rest.
