Borrowdale Brooke - House
This modern home stands uniquely positioned on multiple levels while north facing. The entrance is on the southern end and the entertainment area is on the northern side. The house is designed to mimic a butterfly that is gently positioned in flight above the Borrowdale Brooke Estate creating an outstanding view. Looking in at the house from the road entrance is the main house pivot door which is beautifully done in exotic wood and is flanked on both sides by wings; one being north-east facing whilst the other being north-west facing. The two distinct house wings accommodate two separate family settings poised in balance around the butterfly shape of the house. The North West wing has a lovely levelled terraced garden with two floors above whilst the other wing has three distinct levels.
The landscape around the house is designed to be an integral part of the home, creating a blend combining on one level the entrance driveway and the front/north east garden level comprising a pool area and on the other side a fire pit area comprising terraced garden levels on the north-west side. The windows on the entrance south side are slightly exposed with some direct views straight through to the transparent north light filled glass zone views. From a reverse angle most rooms and living spaces face north overlooking the Borrowdale Brooke Estate.
The main circulation path, for movement around the house is from the central axis running south to north and east to west. As a bonus the paths are mostly within open planned spaces, with no traditional passages, which makes moving from one room to the next a very smooth transition. As such the southern and northern rooms are separate but are connected by the subtle circulation pattern. The views form a crescendo from the south through to the north facing glass opening up into the vast landscaped garden area and through to the lush golf garden estate. Beyond are amazing rolling hills and plateaus of neighbouring surrounding areas with the climax being the amazing sky and sunset views. The effect of the home design is immense as it travels time, space and zone, perhaps teleporting you to a place in California, however this home remains perfectly rooted where it sits within the Borrowdale Brooke Estate.
