Entrance to the home on the ground floor opens into the master suite where exposed brick, timber ceilings, French doors and plush carpets fashion an inviting private sanctuary – an expansive and luxurious arrangement of sitting room, breakfast nook, bedroom and ensuite. The grand bedroom includes an impressive stone fireplace, a wall of wardrobes and a picture window – imagine waking up to views of the garden-edged lawn from your bed. A spacious and light-filled ensuite with sash windows, terracotta floor tiles and over-bath shower adjoins the bedroom.
A carpeted staircase to the second storey can be closed off to create a private and self-contained ground-floor apartment. Views of the stunning fireplace fitted with a slow combustion heater greet you on entering the lounge. Made of local granite, the soft greys of the perfectly proportioned stones anchor the room. Reclaimed brick and exposed beams define this subtle and welcoming space with its deep-pile carpets, raked ceilings, high light-windows on the north side, and French doors to the balcony wrapping the front of the home. A dining alcove with south-facing windows and a door to the balcony summons visions of long, expansive meals surrounded by family and friends and filled with conversation.
In two of the upstairs bedrooms French doors open to the balcony and views of the gardens and surrounding hills. In the larger of these bedrooms, a corner window with skylight will have you feeling like you are sleeping in the trees. The third junior room has access to the rear decking, the perfect spot for a quiet start to the day. A cleverly designed bathroom and a second separate toilet are practical inclusions in a family home.
The country kitchen is a functional space, with wrap-around work surfaces and under-bench storage. Tucked beside the back door, with easy access to the rear deck and garden, is a space-saving European laundry.
Extensive landscaping has created a series of garden rooms across the terraced site, offering private spaces in which to enjoy various aspects of the gardens: from cool and dappled patios and a secluded south-facing deck to the shaded verandah with views across the lawn to the pool. The salt-water pool sits within paved and terraced gardens and affords views to the hills of Boya. The use of local granite in the garden’s walls and paving gives this home an organic hold on its site. A well-placed and restrained carport and garden shed complete the pitch-perfect outdoor areas.
This much loved and well-tended home is a beautiful example of form following function, the use of local stone and reclaimed window frames, doors and brick infuse it with an atmosphere of strength and continuity; the perfect setting in which to craft family life.
