Towards the front of a sprawling 2-acre block, an exposed aggregate concrete driveway leads you to an elevated porch. The porch is accentuated by the contemporary Moroccan design and soft naval palette of the ceramic tiles. A pair of matt black, industrial wall lights illuminate the entrance to the designer/builder 364.9m2 home, which is marked by a muted aqua door. Sturdy, white-painted brick pillars, to the front of the house, sit in contrast to the tall native Gum trees surrounding the dwelling. The Grey Pale James Hardie Linea, covering the exterior of the home, replicates the horizon. The home maintains a sophisticated design fusion where coastal vibes meet industrial chic. This contemporary Australian twist on, the Hampton style, provides the foundation for 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, guest room, powder room, media room, children’s retreat, mud room and generous outdoor entertaining areas.
Once inside, the timber-look floors and cool grey walls create flow throughout the open plan living area. The elegant kitchen is refined with shaker style cabinetry, and glass panels on the overhead doors. The splashback balances functionality and style with Spanish handmade tiles. These grey patterned tiles complement a large, white farmhouse sink. Nestled behind the kitchen is large Butler’s pantry, with generous storage.
Beyond the main living area, the hallway leads to the bedrooms, main bathroom and powder room, and kid’s retreat. The mudroom forms the organisation hub of the home. The practical space features a cubby for each member of the home, with racks for shoes, hooks for jackets and catchall storage. The bench seating assists with shoe removal and completes this designated space for keeping the home clean and clutter-free.
The main bathroom and powder room see the convergence of artistry and functionality. Cretement Vintage Grey Taco mixed vintage patterned tiles, in 450 x 450mm, flow exquisitely from floor to ceiling in the shower recess and then wrap around the inset bath. Devonshire White, 75 x 150mm, subway tiles meet James Hardie Axon, providing clean white spans from floor to ceiling. Matt black fixtures and tapware contrast against the crisp white space and continue the industrial chic style. The on-trend tiling, accessories and cladding finish the superbly functional design, where the absence of showers screens makes for easy cleaning and the nib wall provides innovative storage.
The parent’s retreat rests at the opposite end of the home. The royal blue backdrop, of the Scyon Stria, cladding stretches behind the master suite to create a spectacular focal point, which is adorned by two matt black pendant cage lights. In keeping with the textures and palette of the main bathroom, the ensuite mirrors the fine selection of cladding, tiles and fixtures. The free-standing bath coupled with the outlook over the paddock offers a new level of luxury, making for a sensational, relaxing space. Decorative, brushed brass handles extend the luxury to the cabinetry and two matt black, wall-mounted, retro lamps light the space.
Connecting the home to its natural environment, rebated sliding doors create a seamless threshold between the main living area and the alfresco space. This vast space, with a Merbau hardwood kitchen servery, is ideal for entertaining. Rectified, 300 x 600mm, tiles in a brick bond pattern brings a contemporary touch to the outdoor space. A recessed exposed aggregate border, below the tiled platform, wraps around to frame the footprint of the home.
This Hampton inspired home radiates a coastal flow, with industrial chic embellishments. The
workmanship throughout the home shows a keen eye for detail and custom features are incorporated throughout, from the inbuilt cabinetry and VJ and stria cladding to the round, rustic brass handles on the washroom cabinet. The builder’s responsibility for all aspects of the build, down to the finest detail, embodies Hamptons on Narooma as the ultimate modern, Australian home, where comfort and class collide.
