Al fresco dining takes on a new meaning in this stunning Balinese home where walls disappear to capture the essence of nature.

Almost entirely exposed to nature, the living and dining rooms, which look out to a beautiful pond, truly embrace the home’s all-year-long holiday feel.
“I open up the doors to the outside balcony and it’s just so beautiful. These are the moments when I pinch myself” – homeowner.
Infused with a calm and serene ambience, the main bedroom is the homeowner’s favourite room. Complemented by creamy cement walls, it has been decked out in soft, understated tones, with the bed layered in KID Cashmere ombre linen and a soft peach, daisy motif throw.
The guest bathroom features an open-to-the-elements shower and a wall swathed in a leafy Indonesian creeping dollar vine. Custom-made fish tiles bring a splash of pattern to the floor.
Decked out in shimmering Indonesian grey onyx floor tiles and featuring a sumptuous black polished terrazzo bath, this wash zone is a statement of pure luxury.
Greenery abounds in this beautiful home where the indoors blend with out.
A large window offers a front-row view of a terracotta patterned boundary wall constructed in traditional Balinese temple style. The homeowners’ poodle waits patiently at the foot of the floating stairs that have been inlaid with fragments of basalt.
