Nestled on a sloped lot and surrounded by lush green bush the fabulous family home has a unique entry that weaves its way through the greenery and leads you to the rear of the residence. The natural slope of the site was utilized to the benefit of the Pavilion House as the furthest point away from the canopy is completely surrounded by its green goodness.

Thanks to the U-shaped structure of the residence the homeowners enjoy complete privacy as they spend time in the courtyard even as the street façade keeps away prying eyes. A separate living area for guests and the master suite are also integrated visually with the rear yard.
