HOUSE TOUR - Uniquely Hamptons
With their latest individual design, Riverstone Custom Homes have reinterpreted the traditional Hamptons style to create a customised, contemporary family home perfectly suited to its unique Swanbourne location.
Encompassing the inimitable Hamptons elements of grandeur, warmth and symmetry, the traditional façade features weatherboard cladding, a stone-clad chimney, and a beautiful verandah porch, making the home beautifully warm and welcoming.
The sense of warmth continues inside, with ebony-stained Jarrah timber floors leading into an inviting foyer and cosy sitting room with a stone-clad fireplace. A mudroom with built-in cabinetry off the entry is ideal for the busy family, who can drop off school bags, shoes and sports equipment.
At the heart of the home is an open-plan family room with double-height void for added grandeur. Perspex-backed feature shelving in the upstairs passageway ensures the space is flooded with natural light, while the soft, neutral interior keeps the aesthetic fresh and cool. Completing the family room is a second fireplace, on either side of which are floor-to-ceiling windows and charming window seats.
This is the perfect space for the family to come together as one, as it opens on to both the kitchen and dining space and the stunning enclosed alfresco and pool.
In keeping with the classic Hamptons style of the property, the luxurious kitchen features a generous island bench with stone top, ideal for family and friends to gather, eat and entertain. Open storage cabinets painted a deep grey add character and charm to the kitchen, as does the Herringbone splashback tiling.
In a smart use of zoning, all four bedrooms are located on the first floor of the home, including the sumptuous master suite with its private balcony to the front.
For extra storage and utility space, Riverstone have even managed to incorporate a useful undercroft beneath the property.
In finishing the home, the clients worked closely and collaboratively with Riverstone’s Interior Architect Nadia, who hand-picked the furniture. Each item was carefully selected for the way it complemented the classic Hamptons style of the home, as well as the lifestyle of the clients. The end result is a bespoke, timeless home perfectly suited to modern family life and the Swanbourne location.
