Before we head indoors, we head slightly to the right to get more of an idea of the shape and structure of this modern farmhouse. Clerestory windows sit on the high side of the shed roof, while the long length of the property becomes visible.
Alongside the property, the flat roof patio-cum-verandah offers protection from the bright daily sunlight, while allowing the afternoon glow to seep inside the adjoining rooms. For added protection from the sun's harsh rays timber shutters have been installed to each side of the room, and pair beautifully against the rustic, exposed brickwork.
The patio is a real highlight of this home, and offers a lovely place to gather friends and family, or simply relax in the afternoon sun. The timber roof is a lovely dark timber cladding, with ceiling fans to keep cool during the hotter weather.
For a quick look from the other direction we can see the bar, which services the dining space, and offers the potential to entertain and host events in the large lawn space.
Inside the dwelling, large windows bring in a huge volume of natural light, which illuminates the dining table and offers a wonderful view of the scenic farmland outside.
To ensure circulation of air throughout the home, the property was designed with an array of hopper windows. These maximise the fresh ambience, while promoting air flow.
In the kitchen the atmosphere is contemporary and impressive. The cooking and preparation area feels professional, and the designers have opted for a simple yet striking colour scheme.
Throughout the dwelling we see many rustic touches that have been combined with the contemporary aesthetic. An oxymoron, these 'new rustic' inclusions help bring together the overall concept, and offer an age-defiant modernity.
In the bathrooms, exposed brick walls function as the backsplash for the vanity, while contemporary brushed chrome fittings add a charming and characterful aura.
Like a bright beacon of warm and cordiality, this home is striking under the night's sky. Stepping out once again, the home is simple and charming, boasting an impressive array of charismatic inclusions, and timeless features.
Undeniably one of our favourite properties, we here see the entrance, which is illuminated by porch lights. The rustic brick wall is also illuminated by a wall-mounted light, which helps enhance the eye-catching, textured surfaces.
