A 15th Century Stone House


This is a lovely 15th Century Stone House on an island off Croatia. This residence that overlooks the harbor was restored by architect Steven Harris and interior designer Lucien Rees Roberts for themselves. I love the calm and serene surroundings of this stone house and the picturesque view that you get whenever you are outdoors. This house may not be my dream house where I would want to live everyday of my life, but this is certainly an ideal weekend home for me or a hideaway that I would love to go to once or twice a year, a place to rejuvenate tired body and relax the senses... And I just love the simplicity of design of the Master's Bedroom, but don't be fooled because it is definitely comfy and stylish for its furnishings include a Ribbon chair by Pierre Paulin, Glant chair fabric and Calvin Klein linens. I would definitely enjoy my meals in that inviting dining room situated at the center of the house with a wonderful terrace and island views on one side and a citrus court on the other. And I just love the spaciousness of each room of this lovely stone house.
