This magnificent space overlooks the garden and pool and is connected to the kitchen by a rustic wooden bridge over a fishpond.
The kitchen, finished in super-stylish black terrazzo and equipped with fabulous matt black crockery, features Chinese cabinets and a wall display of traditional Javanese metal cracker jars. Adjacent to the kitchen, the open-sided dining room seats ten and overlooks the garden, pool and balé.
