Arrive at this Greendale property on the Canterbury Plains and you’ll see a beautiful two-storey heritage homestead. Except that this 384sqm stunner isn’t a grand old house, it’s actually a brand-new build. The homeowners wanted to create a farm homestead that looked as if it had been there for decades. So the team from Craig Rogers Building took its standard Fendalton Heritage Home plan and adapted it to suit their clients’ needs and their country setting. The collaboration between client and company resulted in a win-win design: a five-bedroom, two-storey stunner with the charm of a house built in the 1920s, but with all the mod cons of a brand-new build. When it came to creating an authentic yesteryear look, no stone was left unturned. The team’s craftsmanship is evident in every room, from the period-style fittings and detailing in the kitchen to the bathrooms with their tiles, cabinetry and fixtures. And a classic design doesn’t mean the owners miss out on modern indoor-outdoor living. Verandas hug three sides of the homestead, opening from the living, dining and kitchen spaces, as well as the formal lounge and office.
