The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
A tall wood cabin is a delightful sight to see in a peaceful setting surrounded by greenery. The polished wood in a light shade feels traditional and familiar bringing the focus to the balcony that is the greatest observation spot of the entire residence. A simplistic cottage has a distinct character that feels very kind and welcoming. The rustic exterior gives it a timeless look brought to life by the striped design and the classic positioning of the windows and the door!
As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
By adding a large floor-to-ceiling glass window in the living area towards the south and the east the kitchen sitting zone and dining space now enjoy unabated view of the hypnotic scenery outside. Even the loft style bedroom gets a long window of its own that allows guests to take in the sights and sounds of Eidsvåg even as they soak in its comfort.
A big treehouse hidden deep within the forest can almost be overlooked if you don’t look closely! It’s built around a strong and powerful tree and appears like something out of an adventure book! A wooden treehouse with a geometric design that is situated near the highest treetops has a big glass wall that lets the light in opens up the space and offers the most incredible view!
Spread across three different levels a central courtyard that flows into the rear garden and sparkling recessed lighting put the final touches on a South African home where outdoor living takes precedence.
