Finally a modern home that isn't about squares, rectangles and straight lines. The curved and organic shapes are stunning and sensuous in a way that boxy architecture could never be. Bold? Sure. Cold? No way! This place is too much in harmony with its natural surroundings to be cold or attention seeking. It is a thing of beauty.

This is a stunning home! Unique and luxurious without being a sprawling, ostentatious mansion. I love the curves, the light and the views.

I find it very warm and comfortable looking....the warmth of the different woods and craftsmanship of the shingles, gleaming copper, the earthy tile in the bathroom, dark leather sofas, the natural coloured pottery and burnt orange accessories such as towels and cushions. It's perfect!

Hats off to architect, Robert Oshatz, for the truly stunning build! The floor to ceiling windows on (I'm assuming) the water facing side are magnificent! Although the curvature seen every aspect of this home is certainly not something to be overlooked, it is my professional opinion that the floor to ceiling windows and integrated sliding door made this build the masterpiece it is. Keep up the great work!

Cheers - G&S
