Hamptons Style In Subiaco
In the annals of history, the 1970s and the 80s will not go down as a period of particular good taste. If the hair and the clothes weren’t bad enough, home builders of the period frequently opted to cover up the beautiful red bricks that provided the structural foundations of their homes. A comprehensive renovation of this secluded two-storey home, on a 353sq.m, block, restored the brick-work to its rightful place as an eye-catching feature by the entrance. It contrasts with white-washed brickwork and white timber beams beneath pitched ceilings. Harwood floors lead past a home theatre to an open-plan living area, complete with an overhanging mezzanine walkway.
It is like living in a holiday home
The kitchen underneath is an upmarket affair, featuring Bosch appliances, Caesarstone benchtops and ample storage space. Glass sliding doors, set at an angle, open from the dining area to a covered deck. White timber-panelled ceilings lend the alfresco area the fell of a Hamptons retreat, and it included a television mount above the outdoor lounge.
“It is like living in a holiday home,” say the owners. The main bedroom is at the back and has a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a double shower. There are two bedrooms upstairs, each serviced by its own staircase. The mezzanine walk-way links the bedrooms and provides access to the contemporary shared bathroom.
