Some­times na­ture in­spires the de­sign of a home. The Cork House fea­tures an im­ported cork tree, a sym­bol of re­silience and in­ten­tion, planted as the cen­tre­piece of an out­door en­ter­tain­ment area. The sym­bol­ism of the cork tree served as in­spi­ra­tion for the con­struc­tion of the home, with the sin­gle tree in­te­grated into the de­sign early on.

The new de­tached house fea­tures five bed­rooms and var­i­ous en­ter­tain­ment fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a wine/ tequila cel­lar and a pro­jec­tor room be­neath the glass-bot­tom swim­ming pool. There is also 5,000sqft of pa­tio space for al fresco din­ing and watch­ing the sun­set. Floor-to-ceil­ing glaz­ing can be pulled back to cre­ate in­door-out­door spa­ces, so oc­cu­pants feel con­nected to the nat­u­ral world out­side. The US$28 mil­lion prop­erty is on sale through Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty.
