Taking this sustainable and resourceful approach forward is the in whichacquired a beautiful new extension along with a revamp of the existing home. The creative minds at Bates Masi Architects decided to keep the original skeletal structure of this waterfront home intact while giving it an imaginative makeover.
A rock pathway and a water feature add the exclamation point to the garden area and large sliding glass doors with an intricate design blur the lines between the interior and the private backyard. All-white walls grace the interior while elegant additions like the rattan dining table chairs and pops of bright color give the home a sense of exclusivity.
make up the core of the revitalized house along with the new top-level addition that doubled the overall living space of the home. Using these prefab walls allowed the architects to easily solve many spatial and structural conundrums that the project faced.
The shell of the historic structure was largely preserved while the interior was revamped completely to fashion a sleek contemporary residence that is spread across four opulent levels and 4500 square feet. An interesting foyer area welcomes you home and leads to the wooden staircase that was crafted using the timber beams of the previous structure. Exposed brick wall additions in different rooms bring textural contrast to the home while reminding the owners of its storied past.
The house uses some conceptual premises as defining elements such as a large podium in contrast to the steep terrain. The elevated views over the natural environment change the perception of the environment as the water feature visually merges with the sea. In this way the archetypal images of the island are assimilated and reinterpreted retaining their language and proving timeless. Time seems to just stop when you gaze out the windows.
A cellar laundry pantry garage for two cars a separate service apartment and a fabulous indoor swimming pool complete this opulent villa. Currently for sale this majestic villa that blends old world charm with new-age comfort could be all yours for $7.46 million!
A large deck outside offers unabated views of the landscape surrounding the cabin and one cannot help but fall in love with its unassuming appeal. In a time when most modern cabins are turning out to be extravagant and indulgent affairs we love this stripped-down and budget-conscious design. A getaway that most of us would be glad to call our own!
