Property Styles Ranch The Ranch is our most popular house type – simple yet stylish. This house has a distinct character, which is represented by glued laminated timber framing, slate details and large glass walls. With 153 m2 of living space this property includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sauna with changing rooms. Visitor’s Villa Visitor’s villa is a six bedroom house to ensure that all of your guests can be comfortably accommodated. All of your friends and golf enthusiasts are invited to spend an eventful weekend or a sporty week.

Estonian Golf & Country Club.indd 15

Cabin The plots for the cabins are covered with dense forest. As a result of this, the architecture of these houses has drawn inspiration from the surrounding environment. The building reminds you of a ribbon that is “swirling” out of the ground, forming the floors, walls and the ceiling for the house. The interior has two distinct spaces: the smaller one includes the garage, the storage room, the utility room, the sauna; the larger one includes bedrooms, the bathroom, the dressing room, the guest bathroom. The central area has the hallway, the kitchen-dining room and the living room.

Property Styles Villa Birdie The space solution of this house joins the indoors with the outdoor room on the side of the house. The architecture, partitioned with terraces and shelters, skilfully involves the surrounding landscape to create cosy areas for people working both inside as well as outside of the house. The L-shaped configuration of the building creates a private courtyard, which is the central part of this architectural example. The Villa Birdie boasts three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Serpentine House This vermicular example of abstract architecture has a wood batten fence, which joins the different areas into one. Its flowing shape makes it difficult to detect the true size of the house.

Estonian Golf & Country Club.indd 16

The result is an actively used compartmentalised space. With its flowing shapes, the house enables comfortable movement indoors as well as outdoors. This large property includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Golf Ball The freestyle architecture of the building has drawn a lot of inspiration from golf and the surrounding landscapes. The sphere-shaped building is depicted as compact and energy-efficient, however the interior provides all the functions of a regular private house. The lower ground floor houses technical rooms, storage space and the sauna whilst the first floor boasts three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Property Styles Hillside House The Hillside House is a detached property with exceptional design built on an elevated site. The architectural design of this house provides many ways to use the residential space with living rooms on the ground floor and bedrooms on the first floor. The first floor has direct access to the golf course. The property boasts three bedrooms with two bathrooms and also includes a sauna.

Design Houses Design Houses are houses with a unique emotion. Three projects offer different sizes and solutions. All house types are good examples of modern design – spacious, functional and stylish. With their massive windows, they blend with the environment and offer enchanting views from every part of the house. The living room with its 6-metre high ceilings is the star of this project.

Estonia - The Baltic Tiger Located on the north-eastern edge of Europe, facing Finland and Scandinavia a short distance across the Baltic Sea, Estonia became a member of the European Union in the spring of 2004 helping to raise the country’s political and economic profile.

While the country and its capital have a long and rich history, Estonia is also a young and technologically advanced country with high-speed broadband enabling the establishment of high-tech enterprise.

With more than 1,500 islands, its diverse landscapes include rocky beaches, old-growth forest and many lakes. Formerly part of the Soviet Union, it is dotted with castles, churches and hilltop fortresses. In overcrowded Europe, Estonia’s sparsely populated countryside is the perfect retreat for nature-lovers.

In 2011 the capital, Tallinn, was voted the European Capital of Culture, highlighting the rich culture the city has to offer. It is known for its preserved Old Town, museums and the 314m-high Tallinn TV Tower’s observation deck.
