A Charming Lodging between Foothills with Fascinating Collection of Artwork and Antiques

Bringing a fountain pen and a rose-colored diary along with faded memories, you alone, or with your sweetheart, drive on the winding road with a gentle breeze passing by the car windows, into this English forest. Suddenly, through glimpses of fleeting light, at the end of a gentle slope, you find a country mansion with red bricks and black tiles standing on the lawn, tucking in among the woods—the Border Hill Space, like an English house coming out from a painting that you᾿ve been missing.

 

 

The sparks between art creation and aged antique

Following the stepping-stone path, you arrive at this charming mansion. Soft yellow lights behind the black-grid bay windows stream in the clear air, while the retro red-brick walls with assorted grain textures are like pages of stories that enrich and complete this elegant building.

 

Going two stone steps up and pushing open the thick wooden door, the wooden floor delivers a calming atmosphere while an exquisite and elegant English-style living space unfolds before your eyes. The blend of European antiques and modern artworks creates a fascinating interior, as the host Art Sir, who has great artistic talent, decorates every corner of Board Hill Space with English antiques and contemporary paintings either from his collection or creation. You pull up a century-old antique chair, sit and look out a window, then open the diary. Now, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you’d be able to enjoy a peaceful moment and still your mind.

 

 

Stay in the English-style mansion embraced by the forest

Antiques encounter with contemporary art here, as light plays with shadow in the flow of time at every room and corner. Each floor has only one room in this three-story mansion for guests can enjoy spacious space without interference. In the “Scenic View Quad Room” on the ground floor comes with two double beds, each takes up one end of the room. Large windows let sunlight stream in, while the highlight would be the terrace facing verdant garden and forest. The imprint of Taiwan incense cedar leaves on the passage wall even conjures up a whiff of delicate woody fragrance. Reuniting with old friends who you haven’t seen for a long time, you all still enjoy each other’s company. At the fall of night, you sit on the terrace shoulder by shoulder, gaze skyward at twinkling stars, exchange your inmost thoughts, and together compose a beautiful concerto of friendship.

 

Climbing the stairs, you come to the “Forest Double Room” on the second floor, as the sunlight pours in through glass doors. Opening the balcony doors, slanting light chase shadows crawling across the wooden floor. You and your sweetheart may sit on the elegant armchairs and share the thoughts on the books you are reading, or have a little dance on the spacious balcony embraced by the greenery. When he puts his arms around you, both of you dance the waltz of your own in the blessing of light and wind.

 

Incorporated into a wall, three sets of Taiwan’s old-fashioned frosted-glass windows serve as a screen panel, delivering a wow effect when you ascend to the third floor. In the “Hill Maple Double Room,” under the pitched roofs, you can gaze out the rolling hills from the windows. In front of the fabric sofa facing the French windows, window frames cast shadows on the floor that lengthen as time passes. After night falls, stars twinkle and moonlight streams between the lines of the poem you write. Here at Border Hill Space, there are intimate whispers hidden in every dream.

 

 

The elegant and picturesque scenery

Waking up in the morning light, you go downstairs following the bright sunshine. Art Sir and the butler have prepared a hearty breakfast for you. By the windows full of greenery, you sip at a fragrant latte and read over a hardcover book from the host’s collection. After enjoying the afternoon tea, you stroll to the gallery in the company of golden sunset, admiring the paintings depicting nature’s beauty with faint brush strokes and simple lines that directly touch your heart.

 

Border Hill Space, surrounded by foothills, mountain creek, and forest, not to mention the fireflies in the summer, embodies the happiness that the host encounters here. Upon leaving, you feel a great reluctance to part with every corner, every piece of scenery, and every moment of light changing as seasons come and go. This English-style mansion will leave you with the most charming, elegant, and picturesque landscape in your memory.
