The Bower Barn is the most intimate and romantic of spaces with Barn doors that slide open at each end to extend the living space into the private courtyard beyond, complete with cobblestones and lush tropical plantings. The Barn has lashings of luxury, sophisticated elegance and a cool colour palette of creams, white, black and greys. It’s a perfect blend of textures with lots of sumptuous linen balanced beautifully with more rustic features such as the century-old timber beam running through the centre of the barn, wide floorboards, warm white panelled walls, perfectly restored vintage deco cottage windows, linen covered chairs and textured timber furniture.
The bathroom is a private oasis in itself with over-sized, soft grey textured floor to ceiling wall tiles combining beautifully with the rich patina of copper tapware and moody industrial lighting. But the piece de resistance is the deep, egg-shaped bath sitting under a full glass ceiling, putting Mother Nature on show day or night. It’s hard not to be seduced by dappled sunlight weaving its way through swaying palms or watching the rain cascade down the glass after a moody Byron storm with its free lightning show. And then there’s the priceless spectacle of the thousands of stars, deeply embedded in a cloudless night sky. The Bower Barn’s aesthetic truly pays due homage to the past while infusing all the expectations of sophisticated, luxury living.
