The contemporary farmhouse has a generously sized central area with 10m high antique ceilings, which have the original bricks still visible. Other original features are the terracotta floor tiles that are in a traditional herringbone pattern.

Period furniture and contemporary art can be seen in each room, giving the house a comfortable feel. This contemporary farmhouse has character and style; with many original features playing a large part in how each room functions. Everything from the modern stainless steel kitchen to the colorful rugs on the floors has been carefully selected to enhance the house.
