Lovely shots. The external stonework looks `spot on!` & the interior looks cool & calming.

btw, where is the garage? (underground maybe ....with a lift :wink: )

Phil,

I think you have set a very high standard for architecture photography with your shots from Dubai and other places, it's a bench mark for those who would like to achive this level.

Cheers

It may be Dubai, but I want that house. Also great photos.

Thanks for the comments.

The villa did have a lift - but only for the ground to the first floor! There is no basement and no inside garage, but there is an external car port. I had to clone out the cars from the external shots.

The owner's runabout is a Bentley Continental GT, and his wife's is a Porsche Cayenne S (just for the extra space for shopping) - a nice driveway for anyone, but not particularly special for the area.

Next door had a Rolls convertible, Aston Vantage V12, Ferrari 458 and BMW X5M.

Love the second shot -- the way the sun is falling upon the wood and the stonework.

As for the interior shots, I like the designer's use of dark hardwood accents. Definitely a calming atmosphere you captured.
