A series of smart bookshelves line the walls of the interior as large glass windows connecting it visually with the wooden deck outside. A loft bedroom and a tufted bay window seat with storage provide additional options which allow the retreat to multitask with ease.

On the outside the old brick wall of the house was improved and given a white sheen and this keeps away prying eyes. Added to its stoic presence are creepers and natural vegetation that are easy to maintain and will sustain the change of seasons.
The transformation is neither drastic nor revolutionary. It is smart sensible and incorporates the rich past of the house into its present form – the reason why this cabin seems so very special!
There is absolutely no lack of space inside the cottage with one area flowing into the next. An open spacious deck outside further extends this sense of being one with the landscape. Inviting modern and unique this exquisite cottage has a bit of something for everyone in the family.
This lovely walkway clad in sliver-gray weathered wooden planks gives the interior a unique appeal with the double height living area and dining space becoming the heart of the social zone.

This was done by using wood from the latter alterations to give surfaces a weathered look even as modern kitchen cabinets smart blue alcove doors in the bedroom and other contemporary additions make their presence felt.
