We often feature stunning vacation homes and family retreats nestled on the ocean’s edge or overlooking snowcapped mountains which leave many of our readers longing for a similar retreat.
Designed by Darren Campbell Architect it is the lavish central courtyard of the house that becomes the focal point of the home as it enthralls you with meandering walkways private sitting and dining nooks draped in ample greenery and of course the large swimming pool that offers something for every member of the family.
It is the front unit of the residence that contains the kids’ spaces home offices for the parents and additional utility units while the rear building houses the living area with kitchen and dining on the lower level and the master suite on the top floor.
The new extension seems to draw its inspiration from the many shipping container homes around as its design embraces metal and glass gleefully. Spread across it contains a beautiful kitchen draped in walnut and marble along with a lovely master bedroom that overlooks the private yard.
The cabinets worktops and the kitchen island with a cool breakfast bar are draped in soft matte white to create a relaxed and elegant environment that lets the garden around it bring vivacious color.
Using two intersecting volumes the architects aimed to overcome the challenge of creating a stylish spacious and organic family home with a light-filled and airy interior. It is the lower levels of the two volumes that house the large living area and an additional family room along with a sleek modern kitchen in white and a lovely dining space.
But the real showstopper of the house is the way in which the front section offers wonderful views of the suburban skyline while the rear unit opens up towards lush green bushes. It is this transformation from the urban jungle to tranquil greenery that makes this Bardon home even more special! With a street façade that offers complete privacy and creative lighting fixtures that bring snazzy sparkle this family residence delivers comfort draped in a serene setting.
