The beautiful Finnish villa is much more than just the view on offer with its unique design combining a touch of coastal charm with classic villa design and modern ergonomics.

Part of the home is etched into the bedrock on the site and it is this rock that acts as an inimitable wall in certain parts of the residence.
A white picket fence is a timeless feature. Even when it loses its initial glistening white look it will still feel just as charming as ever giving the home’s outdoors a traditional appeal!

A house and a fence can blend together so well they seem to become one entity. The exterior feels synchronized in the most wonderful way capturing the allure of simplicity. A retro house is a total eye candy! Everybody gushes as they pass it and it would seem unfair to completely block it from the onlookers. A white picket fence is a great way to set up a barrier without blocking the view.
