The living room is aspected towards the swimming pool, with a large U-shaped sofa built into the four pillars of a century-old joglo.  A chandelier hangs from the centre and when the glass doors are open the breezes blow through and the sound of running water can be heard emanating from the waterspouts in the lily pond behind.  The doors can be closed for air-conditioned comfort and this also applies to the adjoining dining room, which is furnished with a teakwood table and a colorful mixture of 10 steel chairs.  Integrated into the dining area is a chic, custom-designed kitchen – the sort of cutting-edge space that would equally delight chefs and anyone else with a discerning taste for functional beauty.  Here, a central island incorporates four gas hobs and a breakfast counter, furnished with four high chairs and lit by a funky assemblage of hanging bulbs.  Adjacent to the living room is an open-sided outdoor dining area that sits under a soaring wooden roof.  Here, a massive table with bench seating for up to 20 people is positioned for alfresco feasts alongside a smart barbeque area.
The master bedroom is characterised by a queen-size bed built into the extraordinarily-carved, tiered core of another antique joglo, which extends way up into the high roof, and is magically illuminated at night.  The suite also presents a pair of separate walk-in dressing rooms, and a sexy garden bathroom with a rain shower and huge outdoor soaking tub, framed by frangipani trees and living orchids.  A cosy air-conditioned den is fitted with comfy modern sofas, a desk, and a wall unit filled with books, games, and a 46-inch TV and DVD player with surround-sound.The guest house offers an alternative TV lounge with a 42-inch TV and DVD player, which will be appreciated by kids or guests staying in the three bedrooms located here.  These bedrooms, along with the guest room in the main building, are all furnished with queen-size four-poster beds and adjoined by open-air bathrooms with soaking tubs and rain showers.  The spa room rests in a third building.  Finally, the garden has a flat lawn with a 20m swimming pool, majestically bordered by 16 palm trees.  A circular all-weather sofa lies under a sail-like canopy in cool dappled shade, while two cabanas furnish the garden, one with seating and one with three sun loungers.  The garden is beautifully lit in the evenings and filled with stone lamps and statues.
