Fitting for its location in the coastal suburb of Cottesloe, this newly completed home by Kensington Design has a classic elegance reminiscent of the bright and airy homes that are found in New Yorkers favourite weekend getaway – The Hamptons.

The exterior of the home incorporates a variety of finishes including painted render, timber panelling and feature stone in a palette of neutral tones that combine beautifully to create a charming and inviting façade.

To maximise the north aspect, the open plan living area opens out onto the alfresco, lovely garden and pool area which have been placed at the front of the home, hidden from the street behind a wall, whilst the garage is cleverly concealed at the rear of the home past the elegant formal entrance.


The classic coastal feel continues throughout the interior of the home, where on the lower floor the stunning kitchen forms the centre of the open-plan living space. American white oak timber flooring that has been stained a light chocolate colour, creates a beautiful contrast with the superbly crafted white cabinetry and Carrara marble benchtops. An adjacent scullery conceals mess when entertaining.

Upstairs the well-appointed master suite includes a balcony that overlooks the garden, a luxurious bathroom and an enviable dressing room. Two additional bedrooms also have their own ensuite, catering for the owners adult children, whilst a gym on the lower floor doubles as a guest bedroom.
Throughout this lovely home, traditional architectural finishes combine with exceptional craftsmanship to create a beautiful home with ageless appeal.

Adjacent to the kitchen and dining room, this outdoor living room can be opened on three sides via bi-folding doors to create an expansive entertaining area that connects inside and outside spaces, or closed off completely for cozy nights in front of the gas log fireplace.
