A slice of heaven: building the home of your dreams


The owners of this spectacular residence now have the home of their dreams, all thanks to Kitome   

Nestled in the picturesque town of Kurrajong in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, NSW, this stately home perfectly suits the sprawling rural estate that it sits on. With a pitched roof, generous verandah and subtle earthy colour scheme, the home boasts country charm in abundance. Step inside, however, and you’ll find that no expense has been spared on modern comforts, resulting in a home that is just as functional as it is stylish and serene.

Based on The Richmond from Kitome’s Regency collection, this home is the masterful creation of the Kitome team and its owners. Following the purchase of a block of land, the owner-builders decided they wanted to have a hands-on approach when it came to building their new family home and complete control over the design of its interior. After seeing The Richmond, the owners knew this was the perfect design to suit their needs and lifestyle and, combined with Kitome’s flexibility, easily customised floorplans and wide range of available upgrades, the decision to take the next step closer to building their dream home was an easy one.

With a growing family, one of the couple’s main priorities was for their new home to offer spacious living areas and bedrooms so that each family member could enjoy plenty of room to move and an airy space of their own. To achieve this, the owners worked closely with the Kitome team to customise the design and together decided to swell the size of the rooms to match their requirements and ensure the generous-sized home serves the family well for many years to come.

When collaborating with Kitome, the owners also opted to upgrade several of the home’s standard features, including the front and interior doors, cornices, and handles to create a more luxurious, resort-like feel throughout the home. They also chose to remove several of the posts lining the wrap-around verandah and replace the remaining posts with thicker supports.

Stylish and effortlessly elegant, this stunning home oozes modern appeal while staying true to its pleasing country aesthetic. With a timeless cement-rendered façade and timber windows, the boomerang-shaped home certainly looks impressive upon first glance and, once you take a step through the front door, you’ll discover that the interior lives up to expectations.

Inspired by resort-style living, the owners chose a theme of soothing neutral tones and natural textures to use from room to room, and the result is truly breathtaking. With gleaming polished porcelain tiles, chic CaesarStone benchtop, cedar cabinetry and an elegant earthy colour scheme, the large open-plan kitchen/meals/living area is a shining example of this — in fact, it’s understandable why this welcoming space is the most popular spot in the home.

What else does the home have to offer? As well as four spacious bedrooms, a rumpus room, lush bathroom and ensuite, and a home office, the light-filled abode also boasts a home automation system and, of course, magnificent views of the rolling hills in the distance.

“We live in a nice street with quality homes and wanted a kit home that would look just as good as any architecturally designed home,” Rebecca says when explaining why she loves her new Kitome residence. “We’re very happy with the home, especially because we did so much of it ourselves. Everyone had a part in the building process, even our three young kids. At this stage, no one can imagine living anywhere else. Even the kids say they’ll live here forever!”

Whether you want the satisfaction of building and decorating your new family abode from start to finish or the ease of moving into a fully completed home, thanks to Kitome your dream home is finally within reach.
