'Cassells' - The Art Of Living

INSPECTION BY PRIVATE APPOINTMENT.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” It would be easy to imagine the famous quote from Thomas Merton was first heard here in this landmark Research property, a home that is itself a piece of art. It’s a residence that is mesmerising, inspiring and curious. Intricacies in the design provoke thoughts while emotional responses are unavoidable every time you turn a corner. It’s a myriad of wonderlands that combines to become a place to find and lose yourself.
Designed by famed architect Ross Henry and expertly constructed by stonemason and builder Leigh Wykes, the property hosts three clever buildings offering a multitude of possibility.
