ARCHITECTURE AND BUILDING BY HUMPHREY HOMES
Every now and then a generous client will allow us to show you our work for a limited time, by opening their private home for a public viewing.
Our Dalkeith open house has now closed but you can still see the full gallery and read more about the home.
We are opening another private home for an exclusive viewing on the weekends of June 16 and 17 plus 23 and 24, this time in Mosman Park. The home will be open from 11am - 3pm (or by appointment) and full details and address will be provided here soon.
This Mosman Park residence takes its cues from plantation inspired architecture and has been designed and built to honour the traditional discipline. The home is very much inspired by residences in St Barts and the Caribbean for a true holiday feel. What you will see on arrival, and while walking through the home, is an authentic white weatherboard house, not just cladding stuck to brick walls. It is honest architecture that purposely has no overdone or decorative features, so nothing is on show for show's sake. It is a pared back design where you can enjoy lofty ceilings, plantation shutters, classic black flooring, white walls and views to the ocean from the expansive upper balcony. The excitment in using architecture that is deliberately pared back means that the quality of the craftsmanship needs to be of an extremely high standard. Aesthetically, the design is very clean so the eye will naturally be drawn to any unnecessary embellishments or faults, so it is testament to the entire Humphrey Homes team to deliver a home of this calibre.
The brief was that every room should be connected to the outside, maximising access to the garden or views beyond.
It features three bedrooms - each with a private ensuite - plus a pool house and gym/studio (also with a private ensuite) and the design wraps the main entertaining zones around a central courtyard and alfresco with sunken pool.
Want to live like everyday is a holiday? This home will certainly transport you there. We are excited to share more with you soon and welcome you in June.
