If you grew up reading—and being read—fairy tales you might see stone cottages as romantic hideaways or cozy spots to keep warm or as warm defenses against cold nights (or maybe a combination of all three).
The intermediate level contains the living areas along with the outdoor kitchen and dining space that open towards the infinity pool and the outdoor deck. It is the lowest level of the house that holds the five adult bedrooms along with the kids’ bedroom and each one of them seems visually connected with the forest outside thanks to the large glass windows. allow the homeowners to switch between privacy and unabated views while the large glass pavilion above offers the perfect social zone all year long.
Additional dining spaces sitting zones and family areas throughout the house ensure that there is plenty on offer at every turn and a glass elevator connects the various lavish levels. A muted color scheme with earthen tones is employed in the villa with polished natural stone being used in every room. A ravishing master retreat 6 additional bedrooms and bathrooms a home theater a gorgeous home office additional service quarters and multiple balconies complete this exquisite villa.
The new floor plan of the renovated house focuses on blurring the line between both worlds and turning the large sundeck into a natural extension of the spacious living area. Sliding glass doors from the dining space lead to this large wooden deck and every area of the living space offers unabated views of the greenery outside.
A sleek staircase leads the way to the top floor that houses the private quarters which follow a similar color scheme and charm with ingenious textural beauty. Apart from the brilliant use of wood steel and concrete white is the color that dominates the overall setting with pops of green and yellow being used sparingly. A lovely backyard becomes an extension of the lower level living zone thanks to the use of sliding glass doors while a beautiful brick exterior stays true to the roots of the house.
Even in Scotland the stone cottage has gone modern proving that this style can endure the ages. (This structure from Croft 103 is sustainable too.) Two neighboring derelict cottages on the Irish coast were rebuilt and then combined using a modern addition of a glass vestibule. The result is an incredibly modern dwelling by Peter Legge Associates.
Spread across three lavish levels that include a living area and wine cellar on the lowest level a home theater a laundry room a sitting area and guest space on the first floor and a master suite along with three additional bedrooms and a TV room on the top level this renovated house is all about sheer opulence.
