A landscaped, gently rising path leads to the main door at the front of the house. Inside there is a slightly inclined ramp on axis with the central stone fireplace that leads into the main space, which contains all the main rooms and is richly detailed in wood. Built-in furniture, storage and lighting simplify the interior décor and contribute to the overall aesthetic. Within this flowing space, windows are carefully placed to bring in light and provide splendid views. Several terraces also enjoy these views and provide areas for outdoor living; some are sheltered spaces and some are open to sun and sky.
