One of the enduringly popular architectural trends in luxury home design is without doubt Hamptons style homes. Given our expansive coastline, it’s no surprise that the Hamptons classic coastal aesthetic would be an appealing choice for Australians building their dream home. Multi-award-winning Melbourne custom builder, Hedger Constructions have built a reputation on delivering exceptional homes on acreage properties and whilst not a coastal location this luxurious custom home exudes the Hamptons lifestyle.
Driving through the gates the multi-level main residence which is grand in both scale and presence makes a striking first impression. In true Hamptons style, the exterior features a 35-degree pitch roof, covered in slate look tiles, external Linea cladding and feature stone to the pillars and chimney area which provide an earthiness to the build and anchor the home within its rural setting. The home was positioned within the site maximise the gorgeous rural vistas available from key areas of the home and a significant site cut was required to allow for the sizeable footprint of this spectacular home and the free standing pool house.
Upon entry from the double front doors, visitors are greeted with a full height entry foyer showcasing the intricacy of the coffered and angled ceiling design. A beautifully crafted timber staircase winds to the first floor from this area, leading to the gallery space. This private area is bathed in abundant natural light provided by roof windows. The clever use of angles and rakes to the walls and ceiling are an elegant highlight of this space.
As per the design intent, each area of the home has been skillfully designed to utilise all available space for an intended purpose. Whether it be for the privacy, quietness and seclusion of the formal living room with its inviting fireplace and window seat; or the reflective nature of the study room; the home speaks to the owner’s brief of catering for the needs of the entire family and for guests who regularly come to visit.
On the ground floor, the superb timber kitchen has shaker styling and American Oak as a feature. The custom kitchen is served by a butler’s pantry accessed by a barn style door on metal sliding track, allowing for guests to be entertained without the clutter of preparation equipment.
The open living areas feature a stunning Rustic Oak engineered floor, which adds warmth to the interior and beautifully complements the wainscoting used throughout the home. Natural tones and materials have also been utilised to create an organic quality throughout, such as the stone fireplace surround. The use of natural light to enhance nooks and corners, helps create intimate spaces within the open-plan living area. The ground floor also caters for guests with a private wing complete with full bathroom.
On the first floor, the bedrooms are generously proportions and include Juliette style balconies for occupants to step out and enjoy the stunning rural ambiance. The master suite offers an expansive space to retreat to and includes a huge dressing room and gorgeous ensuite with free standing bath.
Taking full advantage of the stunning Australian bush surroundings, wide verandahs with expansive spotted gum decking and lined ceilings with fans provide ample areas for outdoor entertaining.
A spectacular feature of the home is a gorgeous mosaic tiled infinity edged pool which is serviced by a pool house, complete with stainless-steel kitchen and living space. The upstairs bedroom provides additional room to accommodate guests and family who come to stay.
