The Craftsman and The Draftsman Project 1
The incredible husband-and-wife duo dubbed The Craftsman and The Draftsman created this magnificent Hamptons-style home. With intricate detailing and impressive panel work, this dwelling is truly an architectural masterpiece.
Entering the spacious foyer, the grand monochromatic staircase is accentuated by traditional European panelling. The second storey allows for a void area above the entranceway, giving an instant sense of expansion. Here the panelling continues upwards for an opulent statement. Panelled features are at the core of this truly unparalleled dwelling – including the wainscoting in the living area and bathrooms, and the teal timber herringbone feature wall in the master bedroom, adding a touch of the Australian coastal aesthetic.
While the house is open plan, it flows into intimate spaces, the perfect combination for both entertaining and everyday living. Large windows let in plenty of natural sunlight, illuminating the beautifully detailed designs. For further illumination, The Craftsman and The Draftsman chose to install outdoor lighting in the interior, along with standard down-lighting, another element that makes this home so one-of-a-kind.
Striking sky-blue cladding forms the exterior, complemented by the shale-grey COLORBOND roof, custom-made white fencing, stone pillars and black wrought-iron gates. Planter boxes are dotted around the front entryway for an extra spot of colour. Since the abode is situated on a large corner block, there was room for his-and-hers garages, further enhancing the desirability of this dream home.
