Water bodies lies beneath either side of the central internal stairs. The rear comprises kitchen, pool facing formal and informal dining spaces with a master bedroom. A pool with wooden deck run along the walkway, placed centrally between living and dining spaces acts as a focal center and also as a central evaporative cooling surface. 3 bedrooms with private terraces and balconies and a large family area occupies first floor.
