It is possible to create entrances from both streets because this house sits between two cul-de-sacs. Those entrances are the guest entrance and the entrance to the basement parking.

Completed with a water feature, a plant room, and an atrium, the basement parking can accommodate up to 8 cars. There is also another double garage with a staff cottage on the ground floor.

The front door can be reached by crossing through a skylight-covered glass bridge over the water feature at the basement level.

The double-volume hall is separated from the dining room by sliding glass panels and it opens to the lounge area. The double-volume family room leads to the lanai while the dining room is open to the kitchen.

This house’s ground floor is defined as a glass box with brick walls used for storage or privacy.

One can access the home theater, games room, indoor pool, and a covered patio from the entrance hall while a guest suite can be found to the south of the lounge.

The first floor can be reached through a cantilevered staircase from the hall. There is a bridge over the lounge and hall that connects the main suite and balcony to three kids’ suites and a pyjama lounge.
