Inspired by the breathtaking structures of seaside resort The Hamptons, this residence exudes an upmarket yet understated sense of casual living.
The brief for this new display home was clear — “to recreate the look of a place in The Hamptons” — and the project quickly became a truly exciting venture for the professionals at Charleston Homes.
Charleston’s vision was to create a bespoke home that stands out from the rest. The classic contemporary design with imposing façade features five bedrooms including master with ensuite, three-and-a-half bathrooms, casual and formal living spaces, timber staircase, fireplace and a large gourmet kitchen. This residence created an opportunity for the designers at Charleston to showcase their creativity and skill.
Charleston wanted a home where the exterior and interior intertwine to provide a seamless flow between inside and out. This enhances the relationship between each setting, encapsulating the essence and style of The Hamptons.
The home’s spacious interior houses a master suite on the ground level, while the remaining bedrooms are placed on the upper level. These upper-level bedrooms share a living area and several ensuite bathrooms elegantly appointed with Villeroy & Boch fittings.
As you step into the foyer, it is clear the house exudes a special ambience. The extravagant six-metre-high coffered ceiling centres above a void over the main living area, allowing for bursts of light to flow beyond the entry to other areas of the house. With timber treads and glazed black-and-white chequered porcelain flooring, the interior guides you into the enormous bespoke kitchen and living space. Large glass windows and beautiful French doors open up the home to create a light-filled interior.
One of the home’s most delightful spaces is the cosy yet huge family and kitchen area. The space feels like home and is extremely comfortable. It opens to the outside through vast sliding doors onto the huge timber entertaining deck, an area that is both functional and beautiful.
Externally, the house had to recreate the grandeur and luxury of The Hamptons. The external rendering creates a striking façade and adds to the structure’s ambience. Extravagant landscaping creates an outdoor haven, while the decking increases the home’s magnificence. The extensive timber deck is shaded by alfresco roofing, creating an effective family and entertaining area.
“Charleston has never been a company to follow market trends,” commented Managing Director Tiho Bacic. “We stand on our own and pride ourselves on being leaders in design, thinking outside the box and giving our clients something unique that they can be proud of.
“The process of designing a new display home is not considered lightly by Charleston. It’s a long process, taking many factors into consideration, before a design can be brought to life. All facets of design are handled in-house — from initial sketches to architectural drawings, construction and selection of materials through to interior design and landscaping. It’s a labour of love nurtured from concept to completion. The result is a home that we are very proud to put the Charleston name to.”
Thanks to the team at Charleston, the home’s lasting finishes and stylish features will no doubt create a special retreat for all who visit this luxurious home. With generous space and plenty of room to entertain, this residence has all the appointments and finishes reflective of its inspiration.
