Bucks County Estate Incorporates Japanese Design Practices for an Aesthetic Masterpiece
A home in Bucks County features a unique design style that helps it to stick out among other luxury properties in the area. Staff writers at Sotheby’s wrote about the home.
Villa Terra, whose name means “country house of the earth”, is located at 2025 Freeh Lane in Springfield Township.
The home is a beautiful place for those looking to live in the area in style, mainly due to the designers’ and architects’ utilization of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy on aesthetics that embraces imperfection as a form a design.
The handmade designs found in the walls and furniture echo the long-celebrated design ethos. Screaming “organic”, the home is not a spotless model of what homebuyers see on realtor websites; it fully owns the rustic nature of itself for those who want something different.
“Wabi sabi is about engaging all the senses, which is why the grounds and gardens of Villa Terra are so spectacular,” Sotheby’s wrote on their website.
“The breeze blowing through the canopy of the trees and the gentle babbling of Cooks Creek provide a soothing backtrack while enjoying the veranda, fire pit, and sunbathing patio.”
