And it has very effortlessly managed to combine eclectic style with lavish comfort in its spacious interiors. Wood has been used profusely throughout the residence for a rich, warm appeal. Different elements like stone, brick and glass has also come together to fabricate a lifestyle which is elegant, tranquil and surprises you with dashes of old world charm now and then.
