Fortresses are not normally built as beautifully as this fastness of refinement and elegance. The attention is to an irrefutable balance of form and function. There is no tautological indulgence in this bastion of a home; no redundant element, no superfluous detail. Minus the ostentation, an aura of the palatial prevails. One’s gaze is cast upwards, outwards, unrestrained, as if in reverential reverie. Rejoice in the splendour.
