ARCHITECTURE AND BUILDING BY HUMPHREY HOMES
Inspired by St Barts and the Caribbean, this authentic weatherboard home has an unmistakeable holiday feel and you can escape to this retreat when we open it's doors for the final time on June 23 and 24, 2018.
Located in Mosman Park, this classic family residence takes its cues from plantation inspired architecture and has been designed and built to honour the traditional discipline. 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 excitement 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.
Join us at 9 York Terrace, Mosman Park from 11am - 3pm on June 23 & 24.
