This cedar and brick-clad house really does settle easily into the surrounding landscape, its understated design also making indoor-outdoor flow a priority. On a 254sqm floorplan, the Hamilton home has living spaces that all open onto the hardwood deck. This leaves no space untouched by sunlight, while the sheltered outdoor area with exposed trusses ensures year-round outdoor living.
The large, open-plan kitchen/dining/living is the heart of the property. The kitchen with butler’s pantry will inspire even those not known for their culinary skills to new heights. The three bedrooms are all of generous proportions, while the master also includes a large walk-in-wardrobe. As well, there are ample storage solutions to ensure the house is every bit as practical as it is visually appealing. There is also a flexi room, so-called because it’s a handy, versatile space that could be used as an office, rumpus room or fourth bedroom depending on the family’s changing needs.
