The house is freestanding on a large fully landscaped block and faces north east toward the tropical forest. As the sun rises and moves around to the north we are treated to an ever changing panorama of filtered light and 50 shades of green. All rooms have views to the spectacular forest and landscape. We live outdoors all the time, even in the monsoon season when we sit under the outside ceiling fans.
DESIGN AND FUNCTION.
The kitchen being central is the epicenter of everything. Having living spaces on both sides of the kitchen means the whole of house opens to the landscape, the trees & the sky. The covered outdoor living area is big enough for everyone & we only close it up late at night. With 4 separated living areas there is room for everyones independence. The 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and upper level gallery enables spaces & privacy. Whether it is 2 or 10 guests there is room & independence for everybody. Most pools in Port Douglas are plunge pools but you can swim in our 13 meter pool.
