With over 7,300 square feet of accommodation space and five bedroom suites, the luxurious Grange View Residence was envisioned by Harrison Varma Architects in London, UK. Three landscaped terraces, a courtyard balcony and a landscaped rear garden ensure the existence of plenty of outdoor opportunities. Folding windows and patio doors with solar control double glazed units add practicability to the exterior. A white color palette defines the living room, bedrooms and bathrooms. The social area boasts a generous sofa set, a large dining table for ten and modern TV unit. Custom made joinery incorporating walnut desks and bedside tables, automated curtains and unique fabrics define the master bedrooms and guest bedrooms. The most appealing interiors of the entire residence are probably the home theater and the 10 meter pool room with glass mosaic tiles.
