Hamptons style homes epitomise luxury coastal living and this spectacular Port Macquarie home by renowned luxury home designer, Chris Clout, takes traditional Hamptons style features and finishes and combines it with Chris’s signature resort-style design, for a home that offers the ultimate in luxury water-side living.
Positioned on the Hastings River at Port Macquarie this Hamptons style beauty has been designed in two wings to take advantage of a v shaped building site and maximise river frontage. From the picturesque street entry, you can see straight through to the expansive outdoor entertaining area to the pool, an acrylic edge on the pool adds an illusion of it being an extension of the river beyond.
For Chris Clout Design, the extensive traditional detailing of this Hamptons style home was a very different style of project from their usual, however they enjoyed fulfilling the clients’ brief for a classic Hamptons look whilst adding the modern twist of seamless indoor / outdoor entertaining spaces – something not typically seen in Hamptons style homes but something that Chris excels in.
Luxurious materials including marble countertops, travertine and marble floor tiles, Oak flooring combine with an exceptional level of detail to creates the luxurious Hamptons feel. Finishes include; extensive built in cabinetry, stone cladding to the fireplace, VJ Panelling, Wainscotting, chair rails, panel mouldings and cornices, but there are some contemporary twists, such as LED lighting that highlights the stunning coffered ceiling.
Breaking away from Chris Clout’s more typical contemporary, resort-style homes, this Hamptons style masterpiece certainly indicates that Chris is no one trick pony and is truly deserving of his reputation as one of Australia’s leading luxury home designers.
