This home exemplifies innovative design that both respects and enhances the original structure. The design adapts to today’s lifestyle while anticipating the needs of the next generation, creating a luxurious, sustainable home in South Australia’s climate.
The heart of this home is unquestionably its expansive main kitchen and living area, which boasts elegant design features, including a custom-made recycled jetty pylon post to support the kitchen benchtop. The space is beautifully illuminated by highlight windows, showcasing the property’s architectural showpiece – the saw-tooth roof clad in Easy VJ timber panelling, reminiscent of Adelaide’s historical industrial areas. Exposed bolted timber trusses add a touch of rustic charm and uniqueness to this modern abode.
Thoughtfully designed to blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor space, the home features Western Red Cedar sliding stacking doors that sit flush with the internal floorboards and Spotted Gum deck. This giant six-panel sliding door provides a seamless transition to the outdoor area, extending the living space and allowing for indoor-outdoor entertainment. The alfresco area overlooks the pool and is equipped with an operable louvred shade cover, providing a perfect space for relaxation and entertaining in any weather.
Clever design continues with intricate truss detailing that adds visual interest and texture to the home’s high ceilings. The floating oak staircase, leading to the master suite, is a design feature in itself. Underneath, a concealed cellar with a hydraulic door seamlessly integrates with the floorboards and skirting, providing a smart storage solution without compromising the home’s sleek aesthetic.
The upper level houses the master suite, a tranquil sanctuary filled with an abundance of natural light, thanks to the carefully designed roof and high-level louvre windows. This private space creates an intimate retreat away from the communal living areas, a nod to the home’s thoughtful design for multigenerational living.
The pool area and outdoor dining space further highlight the seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living. All details were considered – even the pool cover is recessed to extend the clean lines of the extension, preserving the overall aesthetic. At night, the pool area transforms into a serene, illuminated space for relaxation and entertainment, showcasing the home’s versatility and attention to detail.
