The style is calming and under-stated, ensuring that nothing detracts from the extraordinary view. The restful decor comprises unique pieces of antique furniture from Bali, Java and Lombok, local artwork, traditional weavings, carvings, statues and antique shadow puppets. Integrated into the natural contours of the steep-sided river gorge, the house is cooled by ceiling fans and cross breezes from the river. The three-storey building is entered on the top floor.On the lowest level, accessed by a stone stairway, is a freeform, infinity-edge swimming pool, which appears to overflow into the jungle below and offers stunning views of the tropical forest and the rush of the river. To one side of the pool is a terracotta tiled sundeck with four sunbeds.From the upper floor, a staircase curves down to the middle floor, presenting a large dining area with an integrated terrace, open at the front to the view. In the centre of the room is a dining table, constructed from sections of an antique Javanese house. The table can comfortably seat up to 10 guests, and is lit by two glass hanging lanterns, while the back wall is furnished with a carved sideboard and embellished with softly-lit alcoves showcasing woodcarvings of Balinese goddesses. The room is equipped with a sound system incorporating a CD player and speakers.
Three on the upper floor and two on the middle floor. All are accessed by antique Javanese doors and are fan-cooled as you will have no need for air-conditioning in these refreshingly cool highland climes. One bedroom on the middle-level is air-conditioned for heat sensitive guests. The delightfully spacious, high-roofed master bedroom on the upper floor is furnished with a queen-sized bed crafted from old teakwood, as well as an antique Javanese batik table and a glass-fronted cabinet of books. The ensuite marble bathroom is accessed via a walk-through dressing room and is fitted with a luxurious terrazzo corner soaking tub for two. A door opens to a open-air shower deck, bordered by walls that are high enough for privacy yet low enough at the front to enjoy the view. A small kitchen is situated next to the dining area where the staff prepare breakfast. It is fitted with terrazzo worktops, a four-burner gas hob, modern appliances and utensils.

A garden path leads through tranquil lotus and water-lily filled fish ponds to an open porch furnished with two carved sofas.
