Timeless appeal

Inspired by the homesteads of old, this dashing Queenstown abode exudes authentic character and charm. Beautifully positioned on established farmland, you’d be forgiven for thinking it had been here since the turn of last century. The deep front porch beckons for sunny afternoons with friends and family. The spa pool is a welcome addition.

Inside is modern, yet in line with classic construction techniques. Large architraves, deep sills, tongue-and-groove ceilings and visible brush work in the painted trim were all used to evoke a sense of history. Schist features, including a fire surround and kitchen wall, help to ground the design.

Enormous skylights bless the home’s heart with a natural glow. Three good-sized bedrooms provide a quiet escape from the open-plan living domain. Two well-equipped and detailed bathrooms include an ensuite off the master bedroom. A cosy second living room provides fl exibility.

The end result is an appealing family-focused and functional modern home that’s steeped in traditional values.
