Fusion’s most exceptional quality is the way it blends in with the mountain landscape. Visionary architect Greg Wright has created a magnificent villa that effortlessly becomes part of the rock and natural vegetation that surrounds it.The owner was deeply involved in the planning, his influence pivotal to the incorporation of elements of the actual mountain into his home. The gently ascending external stairway is of a unique terrazzo quartz and the outdoor slatted decking of balau timber. A large 8 x 3 metre pool lies flush to the deck, its extra deep waters refreshing like a mountain pool.
Fusion’s master suite rises from the pool deck. Large sliding doors open onto the pool area, and look beyond to the endless expanse of turquoise sea. The walls of the en suite bathroom are lined with quartz-side tiles, and timber planks cover the floor. A Jacuzzi-style bath is joined to a glass panel at eye-level with the lush back garden, the vegetation, wood and rock conspiring to give the effect of lying in a bath on the mountain’s forest floor.
Australian chestnut floors spread throughout the home’s main entrance. At the end of the passage is a neat, inconspicuous laundry room fully equipped with the latest machines. Bedroom two faces the garden, and has an en suite bathroom. Indonesian silk accents embellish bedroom three, a suite with stunning ocean views. This suites most exciting feature is its incredible shower, which is framed by glass on all four sides and looks out over a sheer drop to the road and the glistening bay beyond.
The kitchen is open-plan, making it simple to cook while entertaining guests. Entertainment is provided in the form of a plasma television, dvd and hi-fi systems. Views throughout the entire floor are breathtaking. Sections of the ceiling have been filled with clear glass, allowing the sun to stream into the rooms and offering magnificent views in all directions.
