Perched high on a rock with vistas of lush hills, this latest villa on Rosyth Estate reflects an inspired architectural design that encompasses its natural setting and adds a modern touch while retaining a quiet elegance – it is a perfect place to relax by the plunge pool, sunbathe on the deck, shower under the stars and soak up the tranquillity of the surroundings. Situated about 150 metres away from the main house, this bungalow contains two suites – the Rock (master) and Banyan – a living room and a mezzanine floor in an area that extends over 225 square metres. A magnificent roof that aligns with the hill opposite it projects itself over the rock and stands guard over the plunge pool while framing the panoramic windows in the cosy living room. Concrete columns support the villa to minimise stress on the rock and there’s a pond to collect rainwater. An external staircase accesses the roof terrace, which is an ideal place to admire the environs. Rosyth Villa was built to take advantage of the beauty of these environs and its breathtaking views – and it has done that and more, thanks to its design and construction.
