Audrey Hepburn is certainly one of my all-time favorite actresses — her wit, grace and charisma. Whether or not that has impressed Rossdale Properties’ new show house of the identical identify I can’t be certain, however this charming new design has plenty of comparable attributes to the film star.
Like its whimsical fashion, sleek particulars and positively its magnificence.
There’s a stupendous atmosphere within the Audrey each inside and throughout it, and it begins with the facade. It is a trendy model of a timber clad bungalow and it’s wearing Linea boards in Solver’s smooth Georgia Gray, with gables and battens, Colorbond’s Surfmist on the roof and portico piers in stone, this being Eco Outdoor beautiful Crackenback Random Walling. It’s a stupendous end result and when you’ve got been following this season of The Block, it’s a comparable illustration to a number of the interval properties on the present.
“The Audrey’s facade is a brand new age twist on a Hamptons’ fashion,” Rossdale Properties’ gross sales supervisor Denny Havriluk says.“
“We’re seeing many purchasers love the timeless look of the fashion however need the trendy, recent colors, like the sunshine greys and lightweight stonework. It’s a method that fits a wide range of age teams and demographics.”
Timber properties are a considerably unusual sight on the Adelaide and Hills panorama, in comparison with different cities and states, however it’s an emergence that I’m having fun with and hope to see extra of within the coming years.
So what does the Audrey have to supply? In addition to allure in bucketloads, this cut up stage house (which you wouldn’t guess from the road) has 4 bedrooms, two fashionable bogs (try the patterned tiles: Olympia Black Lights from Beaumont Tiles), two massive residing zones, a stupendous kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a double storage, plus an alfresco and that pretty entrance e porch with a veranda.
“It’s a big household house that matches on a 12.3m vast block with an enormous kitchen, walk-in pantry, separate bedrooms, and enormous alfresco,” Denny says. “It’s excellent for the Aussie life-style and trendy household.”
The cut up stage creates two distinct sections: the entrance has the master bedroom, the lengthy laundry in a deep French Navy color (following the Pantone Color of 2020), and the house theatre lounge, a relaxed, cosy area though it’s reasonably spacious.
Go up and also you’ll discover three extra bedrooms and the principle bed room off a secondary corridor, and an extended area on the correct is the open plan kitchen/eating and household lounge. All through the house, parquetry floorboards (herringbone in Mink Gray, from Zappia carpets) are a spotlight and a pattern I hold seeing recently, which will get my nod of approval.
Interval particulars abound on this house, the window seat in the master suite is a beautiful inclusion and the stone pillars and decking to the veranda are lovely yesteryear options.
It’s these secondary particulars, after you have a look at the massive room sizes and a pair of.7m ceilings, that basically convey the look collectively and ooze the whimsy of a bygone period, whereas having the advantage of trendy appointments such because the fabulous angular gold tapware, fake marbles on the splashback and benchtop, and complicated patterned tiles within the bogs.
In fact, the kitchen is in my favorite shaker profile and that divine French Navy, together with a delightfully named Fox satin color. Along with the Caesarstone Calacatta Nuvo on the benchtop, the Timeless Calcutta sheet on the splashback and the elegantly detailed gold handles, it is vitally polished and opulent.
“We needed to usher in the a lot beloved shaker door vibe all through the joinery, so the kitchen ties properly in with the lavatory vanities and even the hallway linen,” Denny says.
“The kitchen door fronts are carried out in a 2Pac paint, however the colors chosen are literally normal laminate colors, so if purchasers love the color scheme however don’t need to pay the additional for the improve to 2Pac, they will nonetheless have the identical colors for no additional value.”
Regardless of all my wooing over the finer particulars, Denny says it’s the Audrey’s sensible floorplan that can even attraction to consumers.
“The performance of the format is a key promoting level with the mother and father’ bed room being separate from the children’ bedrooms, but having the central house theatre room that also permits sufficient engagement from each ends of the home.”
The Audrey is a versatile house as a result of zoning the cut up allows and it’ll attraction to a wide range of consumers, from younger households to massive households, even folks eager to downsize because the rear bedrooms are fairly separate.
“The floorplan ticks the entire containers, however we love the general really feel of the house due to the best way it’s been styled and the color selections.”
