Part of an exclusive residential complex surrounded by forest, this 380m² wooden cottage is the retreat of a cosmopolitan family who have chosen to reinterpret the classic Russian country house by taking inspiration from the English tradition and blending it with colonial accents, exotic oriental touches and objects of design bought from around the world. The eclectic feel of the whole - designed by the Baharev firm - is also evident in the bathrooms where Victorian and American influences in the bathtubs, mirrors and Devon&Devon fittings blend with surprising harmony.
