The focal point of the living, dining, kitchen is the expansive, glazed sliding doors, to balcony, creating a wonderful light, airy living experience. The elevated aspect and seamless inside out flow, extends the apartment and provides a fabulous outlook to expansive sky and the ever changing and wonderful presence of tree life. The balcony is a sanctuary for bird watching, peaceful repose and equally, an ideal arena for celebration, connection – think, long summer evenings, dinner parties with family and friends, a table set for plenty.
