This cloak of green allows for the design of an open home where pavilion-style interiors flow into the fabulous courtyard the expansive pool deck and the rejuvenating Jacuzzi outside.
Both the pond and the mature landscape around the house give it a cloak of green and provide ample privacy even as the dashing white structure with black trims stands in captivating contrast. A cleverly concealed driveway snakes through the trees and leads you to the entry of the minimal residence.
