This minimalist house sitting on a large plot area boasts of an appearance signifying homestyle repose for the family. The frontage is elegant with inviting woody warmth for the main entrance which is flanked by garage space on both sides.

Wood and White mean Hearty

The fluid layout of this mellow minimalist kitchen-cum-dining area conveniently houses the well equipped kitchen with plenty of storage as well as the tastefully functional dining space. The mellowness of wood predominates with the base of the  kitchen counter, storage cabinets, dining table as well as the credenza. The designer pendant light and tiny ceiling LEDs add luminosity to the space bathed in warm sunlight. A truly welcoming interior!
