Dream homes are often about extravagant interiors luxurious decor and expansive rooms that surround you with opulence. But that is not the only way of creating a magical setting that leaves you spellbound. Why not let Mother Nature take over and do what she does best?
It is hard to describe the magic of this house in mere words as it seems to be cloaked in a blanket of green for the better part of the year. With an exterior that embraces the greenery and is adorned by many flowering plants the house boasts a rustic style that is both refreshing and unique.
The fabulous white kitchen and the spacious dining room continue this bright rustic theme while neat candle sconces chandeliers and pendants offer the appropriate lighting. Featuring four bedrooms and a home office along with the baths on the top level this cottage in Lodi truly captures the magic of a dreamy summer escape filled with lazy evenings and long nights!
Both the bedrooms and the bathrooms have been designed to take complete advantage of the lovely views that the house offers. Each of the bedrooms is clad in diverse hues that range from a minimalist black and white to vibrant reds and bold greens. The accompanying bathrooms also embrace a similar color scheme. With a refreshing pool an expansive deck and comfy furnishings completing the home functionalism precedes form at the Serengeti House.
The idea was to design a home whose aura was as close as possible to the homeowners’ previous farm house clad in wood paper and concrete. Criss-crossing wooden beams make up the most prominent feature of the home and allow natural ventilation to make its way through to the top level.
With changing seasons also comes a change in the hues outside and along with it the house acquires a completely different aura. With a picture-perfect river and creek a stone’s throw away from the house this is a getaway that leaves you enchanted…
The owners of the house include a family in their fifties with a couple of kids as well as their mother who wanted a house with the aura of a timeless Japanese design. The interior is clad largely in Japanese cypress that has been brought from the family’s farm in the forest near.
