Staff accommodation was placed on top of the new garage.The original two kids bedrooms became a study, and the original main suite a guest suite.”
The new house has a infinity pool, the ground floor living space was gutted, and a large open plan, partially double volume living space housing the family room, dining room, kitchen and ancillary spaces created.The original cellar was retained as a wine cellar and a home theatre with views into the pool.
