With a peaceful leafy position backing onto a local reserve, bringing the outside in was the primary desire for the owners of this split level home. Opening up the living areas, maximising light and incorporating unique features has led to a stunning transformation.
With baby 3 now a preschooler and a pup joining their busy family, our client was keen to rethink their lifestyle and truly revolutionise their living space. The vision was to create a family wonderland, with pathways leading to fun outdoor play areas for the kids and breezy chill out zones for the adults. Large glass sliding doors opening onto the wraparound back deck and complementary bi-fold windows to an outdoor servery have dramatically extended the living space. A key element of the brief was to convert the downstairs apartment into a parents retreat with a luxe ensuite and adjoining family media and games room. Natural wood finishes tie in with earth tones, coastal whites and splashes of colour on feature walls, lending an understated casual elegance.
