A woodsy overhang above the patio offers shade during the hot summer months and acts as a striking pergola with unassuming décor and a neutral color scheme completing a makeover that finds balance between respecting the past and paving way to the future. With an unaltered street façade and a revitalized interior this Aussie home offers the best of both worlds.
It is the new living area that is the heart of the rejuvenated residence with the kitchen in white sitting on one side and the dining area on the other. A series of pendants in gray recessed lighting and a lineup of smart windows illuminate this area perfectly both during the day and after sunset.
Some of the striking features on the inside include a net bed on the top level which not only gives the home a fun playful ambiance but also acts as a light well that illuminates the lower floor. A staircase crafted using plywood boxes is another nifty features that saves up space and also creates a versatile display.
It is the entrance courtyard with its traditional Mexican style coupled with Mediterranean goodness and tropical vibe that leaves you breathless. Everywhere you look there is a carpet of green and privacy is never an issue.
The interior of the house has an understated polished look with the furniture bringing in some much needed color. A large kitchen area with a smart island and a breakfast zone is connected with the pool and deck outside using a series of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. With dining space on one side and a wonderful sunken living area on the other the lower level seems as private as it does open.
