This modest single storey and contemporary designed home built for a narrow size block cleverly allows this home to be a low maintenance “sanctuary” as its Italian name suggests. For those with a busy lifestyle, this home is the perfect mix of privacy and functionality with its master bedroom located at the rear. Despite being compact in nature, the heart of the home based in its centre, this use of design allows one to retreat to either end of the house for a peaceful retreat. A subdued colour palette will also complement and enhance this well-proportioned lock and leave residence.
