As is the case with most contemporary homes these days the living areas on the lower level and the bedrooms on top floor open up toward a large deck complete with a pool and an outdoor dining space. Glossy finishes in the kitchen and bathroom a plush Togo Sofa in the living room and a curated splash of color in the dining room complete a refined and relaxing residence.
Working around both the historical and solar limitations of the site Nic Owen Architects revamped the interior of the home completely by altering its floor plan and also added a modern rear extension.
While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
Custom chairs and cool industrial lighting fixtures complete the impressive makeover. Most log cabins and mountain retreats borrow extensively from local architectural principles and design quirks to create a stylish relaxing and unique environment.
Even though it is hard to look beyond the intricately and expertly designed series of water features the home itself presents a spacious open living area on the lower level with the private quarters nestled on the top floor.
