Nestled at the rear of a sheltered valley and enjoying great natural outlooks, this home by designers Marcus Freeman and Hayden Ball of Freeman Ball Developments is created mainly in tilt-panel concrete slabs and full height windows. The privacy wall behind the front yard barbecue and even the pool itself are built from the same preformed construction material.
