Open to the dining room, the kitchen is an ideal spot for entertaining. Throw open the French doors in the dining room to enjoy the sparkling fountain and nature’s soothing soundtrack. Venture through a set of fabulous antique hand carved doors imported from India to retrieve a bottle of your favorite vintage of wine On the opposite side, a shaded outdoor kitchen includes a sink, grill, stove, fridge and lovely dining area.
At the top of the turned staircase, a Juliette balcony overlooks the living room and keeps the space airy.
